Orphan block sorting has replaced "name that quilt and what part is this". I pulled out some orphans to become potholders and have been stacking the rest. Lots to work with here. The left pile is assorted blocks from several quilters, and the one on the right is from Susan, a WI quilter. I'm going to check Susan's closer,I think it might be enough for a small quilt all by itself.
The Chippewa gathering basket I purchased in North Dakota many years ago came in hand. It's fulfilling it's purpose, a gathering of orphan blocks and "beguns". I often use the "row" method when working with orphans, joining same size or height blocks to form the width of the quilt. And last but not least...
I have a small FINISH!! Culled from the wreckage of multitude of UFOs and Beguns, a lone pumpkin block, pieced eons ago at a quilt retreat in Northern MN. The directions were in an old issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. I used what I had with me. Looking back, it seemed like a good idea at the time...LOL. With my focus in the "now", the block now seems perfect for over my kitchen sink. I added a border, quilted it up quick, and it's now over the sink!! Score ONE for Finn this week! FYI...the orange fabric with the strange witches and little green fellows is one of my oldest Halloween prints. A poly blend from the 1980's ala Ben Franklin, and yes, I think that's the last of it!
