However, the tilt brought back the sparkle I saw when I made the blocks. But now, I needed eight more blocks to make it a decent lap size (as shown by the white paper blocks). So, dig out the stash and cut eight more lights and eight more darks. Even though I cut 2 1/2" strips regularly from scraps and have them sorted by colors, there were no more strips that would work, so I had to make a mess digging fabric out of the plastic boxes. I did sew all the strips and cut them into the triangles. They are all stacked to chain sew.
I have not decided what color to make the side/top/bottom triangles. White may be too stark, maybe an off white?
