Orphan No More


After completing the practice blocks for the My-Size Stars Quilt something kept nagging in the back of my mind.  They sort of reminded me…of…mmm…

Well, Thursday and Friday I did some cleaning in my sewing area and found (read: dug down to) some orphan blocks.  Some came in scrap bags and some were leftovers (read: mistakes) from previous projects. 

After adding a little here, and trimming a little there and making a few more quick blocks, there was enough for a lap quilt (55″ x 55″).

Ah, orphan no more.

This will be a donation to Em’s Happy Chemo quilts. 

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming (the projects I was SUPPOSED to be working on when this jumped in the line).
