When I saw Crispy's post regarding orphan blocks it immediately resonated with me. I recalled a quilt top I had tried to put together years ago using blocks from aborted quilts:
As usual, I got too ambitious and it all came tumbling down when I decided to applique the border. Looking back on it, I'm glad. Tastes certainly change. I still can't throw out the rest of my orphan blocks, even though I know I'll never use them.
Here is an update on the baby quilt I am making. It has to be ready for November...2010. Now it is up to sandwich and quilting stage. I may have to do something I 've always managed to avoid - machine quilt.
