More orphan blocks (or abandoned projects?) were gifted to me.
Do you see something taking shape here?
Here’s finish number one! (The blue border looks much more off in this picture than in real life–I HOPE!)
And, Round Two!
With a finish.
There are things about each of these tops that I would change if I did it again.
The first one: I don’t care for the skinny, dark line reddish line created near the middle of the quilt.
The second one: The largest pink block is too much.
That said, they are done and ready for donation. Yes, Emily, these are on their way to you ready to comfort cancer patients. One of my goals for the year was to create an orphan quilt. This makes five of them. Goal reached!
This also marks the end of my donation plans for this year. If more orphan blocks come my way I will set them aside for worthy projects next year.
On the next one, I will try to document the process and share my thinking. Suggestions are welcome. I have a lot to learn about this process, but this much I do know: Each is different. Each is a challenge. Each is SATISFYING!
