Sneaky Peak no. 1

After a marathon of cutting and sewing (and a little bit of swearing - the silk is NOT easy to piece) I now have 128 four-patch blocks and 128 triangle in square blocks.

I absolutely love the bright jewel colours of the silk and the crisp line you get when you press them but it is such a pain trying to cut with the pinking blade on the rotary cutter.  Trying to take a measurement from a wavy line is not ideal but it does leave you with adorable off-cuts:

It seems a shame to throw them away.
