    These are some oprhan blocks I made into placemats and will go to our Guild for the women's shelter when they get their own apartment. I think they deserve something pretty!

    what a wonderful idea......... I am sure they will love them.
    You might also thing about making orphan blocks into tote bags. That is what I do with mine. Great gift as people can always use an extra tote bag.
