A few weeks back, after reading Finn's posts about Orphan Blocks and Orphan Trains, I pulled out all my orphan blocks. I discovered I don't really have that many orphan blocks - maybe enough for one quilt. I put them all up on my design wall -- looked them over - took a couple of pictures and took them down.
Then a couple weeks go by and in my cutting and rearranging of scraps I discovered a bag with a few more blocks. So I put them with the rest of the blocks in a small ziplock bags. So today - after reading Paula's post about her 4 boxes of orphan blocks I again pulled out my orphan blocks - put them on the wall and looked at them.
It would be kind of fun to make a quilt from all my orphan blocks - but I'm not really sure on how it would all go together. Do I just put everything in - regardless of colour and pattern? Do I just put them so they fit together? Will I need to make filler blocks? This is such a hodge podge of things.
There are blocks from two different workshops -- One is Sandi Cummings -- "Thinking outside the block" Can you find those? LOL. The other is Anita Shackelford - "Cutwork Applique" Which I don't really thinks belongs here at all. Maybe I should applique another block and make a bag from it instead. Anyway -- any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. For now - I have taken them down and put them back in their bag. But you can let Finn know that I am trying -- LOL
