The orphan blocks (you can see the pile of blocks here) that I took home from my guild meeting last week are no longer orphans! None of these 15" blocks started out that big. I received 4", 6", 9" and 12" blocks. I cut some the blocks into smaller pieces and added in a little extra fabric here and there. Some needed a bit of a "frame" and then I squared them all up to 15" ... because I have that size ruler. A little sashing and a border ...
I free-motion quilted a feather border and did a simple meander in the center.
It's a little easier to see on the back.
This quilt will go to Andrews Air Force Base to be given to a wounded soldier.What a great feeling ... orphan blocks get used, a quilt gets finished, a soldier gets a little love.
