Time for some examples of orphan tops. This one was put together last fall by Carol E. Both her guild and her church donate orphan blocks to her. She makes up quilts for WTIL, and other causes. In this donation, what she was given the center blocks, the rest is improvised by her *VBS*
Here's another top of Carols. It appears she might have been working with blocks that were already of ONE size, either that or she brought them up to a uniform size.
Remember these guys? I was working on them earlier this winter. I asked for advice about the HST row, and the majority voted for a double row, which forms flying geese. These are all "parts" made from my scrap bins of cut scraps.
And this one I showed last week? I used my oldest UFO and then worked up other bits and parts of similar colors. I focused on the 60" lenght first, and have been filling in the width. It's now ready to be sewn together into a top. Instead of brights in this one, it falls into the 'squirrel bait' area...LOL
