    That's a great idea. It would work for orphan blocks. Love the white print sashing. It sets everything off without detracting. Perfect solution.

    What a great idea & just think of the waste that you have saved. Some others would have given up on it but look at your ingenuity !! What an inspiration.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have 35 blocks from a swap and no 2 are the same size. This is an excellent idea on what to do with them. Thanks.

    What a wonderful idea! I have been playing with 12 blocks (each made by a different guild member) trying to figure out how to put them together with a good look. Some must be put on point, others not. Thank you so much for this great idea!!!

    Question

    Beautiful quilt! How did you do the actual setting of the squares? I hate to sound dumb but did you border on all four sides wider than you needed and then cut to the size you wanted after turning them wonky?
