When I’m doing trunk shows, this quilt stands out like a sore thumb. It’s so unlike anything else in my collection. But, it always gets plenty of attention. Because most every quilter I’ve ever met could make this quilt . . because we all have orphan blocks.
In Kentucky, I taught several beginner beginner and intermediate piecing classes, as well as a class or two for pieced borders. I used fabrics that just happened to be handy so there were many different colors. I ended up with 3 of these type quilts.
Here’s a few of the ‘border’ blocks that were placed here and there.
Do you have orphan blocks? Want to do something with them? Maybe seeing this quilt will give you some ideas.
