Orphan Strip Quilt
I've been "playing" with orphan blocks and strips left over from "cut offs" and quilt backings. I decided to make them 48" long, just to have a plan. The other part of the plan was to make one strip a day. Sometimes that took more that 15 minutes, but not much.
There's a piece of fabric there from a rice bag yardage that says "Extra Extra Fancy". So that's my title for this one!
Sometimes I had enough of something to make TWO 48" lengths, so I started making a second piece, or a second "half". Finally I sewed the two halves together. nHere's how it looks right now -- long enough to cover a queen bed, but not wide enough.
I think I'll close off the side edges with a few more strips, and call it quits.
Now I'm interested in attacking my Orphan Box for another go around!
What do you do with your orphan blocks?
