    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:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t193136.html
    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. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I'd have to say you've put those orphan blocks and scraps to a very good use! Great idea re the auction donation.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Isn't it amazine how one person's "leftovers" make a fabulous quilt for somebody else? These look like they were meant to be together in this darling little quilt! I just love it! I especially like the wonky setting... awesome!
