Some of my orphan block quilts

Good afternoon,

 I'm going to post instructions for us to start adding the orphan blocks. First I would just like you to take a couple of minutes and look at some of my orphan blocks quilts. There really isn't any rhyme or reason as to where the blocks fall, an orphan block quilt is really scrappy, you can use your blocks, extra squares extra strips whatever you have in your stash. Sort out your blocks by sizes and you'll be ready to go.  Maybe our quilts will look a little bit more organized because we started with a medallion.

I know some of you are going to have a hard time maybe placing a blue  block next to a blue block , maybe mixing reproduction fabrics with regular fabrics, but in the end as you can see, it will be fine.

While you look at the pictures, I will be writing instructions for the next step. Enjoy your Saturday and get ready to have some fun.

Happy  stitching,


  1. Wow! I especially like the quilts in photos 3 and 5. Off to find my stash of orphan blocks.

  2. Oh, I love theese quilts! I wish I had as many orphan blocks as well, but not yet! But you gave me the idea to save them up for something, that hopefully will turn out as lovely as theese ones!

  3. You have the best orphan blocks!
