Well, I've got my 36 depression blocks sewn now. Here's a layout of 25 of them on the big library tables at work. (I've made 36 but have only ironed 26, you all KNOW how I absolutely love to iron, uggh.)
This isn't how the quilt will look, of course, I've got my 36 kaleidoscope blocks to make now, and alternate between these depression blocks. If I were just making a depression block quilt, I'd have tried to make the outer triangles of each block a little more varied - as it was, I tried to make them using only the darker blue shades, so they'd blend in better with the dark kaleidoscope blades.
I've used so much of my blue fabric, I may actually have to go buy some blues, just so my stash isn't totally lacking in blue! I set aside a part of each FQ that I'd cut to make hsts from, so many of my kaleidoscope darks will match fabrics I've used already.
So, tomorrow, a new blade in my rotary cutter, and start on the blue kite shaped wedges and beige triangles. Just what do people do on long cold afternoons if they don't quilt or do some kind of craft?
