|Orphan blocks, sorted by size|
First, I finished making the largest triangles into whole Roman Stripe blocks. Then, I sorted the orphan triangles by size. The larger ones were cut in half, which gave me one vertical and one horizontal striped triangle.
|These didn't come from the same triangle,|
but you get the idea of how I cut them.
Adding some medium grey to the vertically striped triangles gave me Flying Geese blocks to use in a pieced border for the black Roman Stripe blocks. Can you believe I hunted for just the right shade of red border fabric at no less than three large fabric stores and came up empty? Then found just what I needed in my own stash at home!
