Default Another "Orphan Block" quilt top

As I have done in the past, I keep any and all blocks, either leftovers from a quilt, some donated for one reason or another, or something I didn't want to make a whole quilt from. They accumulate and I put them together for a charity quilt. I like the idea that some child will be looking at all the different designs in their quilt. Thanks for looking. Have a great 4th tomorrow.

I know that Windows 10 has someplace where you can straighten pictures, but can't find it. Wasn't paying attention as I was trying to figure out the pictures. It really isn't as crooked as it looks!

I usually put block into the backing of the quilts so they don't become orphans. What a beautiful quilt you made with them!
