I am having far too much fun playing with all of these orphan blocks. First, there was the medallion quilt, then one using the Improv method. For my third quilt, I simply laid the blocks into rows set in a background fabric.
I think this one is so bright and playful. You can read more about how it came together in this post.
I used a print for all of the background. Choosing a directional print was probably not the wisest choice but I do like how it turned out.
It is hard to believe that everything besides the background came out of my little orphan block suitcase. Some of these bits fit together so perfectly, it was almost like it was always meant to be.
And the backing is just as playful! I was able to use up an older Laurel Burch fabric I have had for years and paired it with some leftover ombre blue fabric I had in my stash. You can really see my loopy quilting!
It has been so much fun seeing all the things other quilters are making with their orphan blocks. I am working on one more orphan block quilt that I hope to share on the last Friday of February. I will host a link up on that day so everyone can share their creative projects too. It is pretty amazing what can be made from these humble orphan blocks!
