    Orphan blocks and sashing for benefit quilt

    A gal I know gave me her fabric plus orphan blocks and the two sashings on each side. There are some blocks of mine in there but mostly hers. This is really out of my comfort zone to make a quilt like this, but once I added the tan sashing between the rows liked it more. There is a benefit for a gal having many medical issues next week so it will be donated for this. Thanks for looking.

    Very lovely. You did a great job on putting the orphan blocks together and making a nice quilt. Also like the DWR quilt on the right side of your picture.
