    Orphan Blocks - Update

    A couple of weeks ago I posted about the batik scraps I was given by the friend of a friend. There were a lot of finished blocks in addition to scraps. The original post is here:
    Orphan Blocks
    There were about 20 of the small friendship star blocks and churn dash and I put nine of them into this little crib quilt. My office does a silent auction fund raiser around Christmas time for needy families and I'm thinking about donating it for that purpose.

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    No, I did a tilted square patchwork. More or less as described here:

    Very sweet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    It's great! Doesn't even look like "orphan blocks"--looks totally planned!
