AN ORPHAN FOR CHRISTMAS


Sounds like Little Orphan Annie, doesn't it? Actually, as you can see, I put a little pieced border around my Christmas orphans that I showed in an earlier post. (Enough with the Christmas orphans already).
These little blocks all paired up so cute together. Isn't it amazing what you can do with stuff that has just been kicking around for ages. Finn mentioned a couple of quilts that the ladies at Country Threads did several years ago. They were fabulous. They had lots of orphan blocks and created full size beauties. I have been looking for my book, but it is buried somewhere.
If you haven't been to Finn's Orphan Train Blog, you must check it out. She was kind enough to feature a couple of my quilts in her recent post. Go see what other bloggers, including Finn, have come up with. As for me, I gonna keep digging---I know I have more orphan blocks that need a home.

That is such a cute little quilt. Now you have a new Christmas decoration for this year or you can even count it as a gift.

They look like they were designed to go together. Just as cute as can be.

I love your Christmas quilt! No one would ever know it wasn't designed to be exactly what it is. =)

This one turned out so great! It looks like a pattern, not orphan blocks. Congratulations on a wonderful quilt.

I had no idea that orphan blocks could be turned into something so cute. Wonderful little Christmas quilt. I'm going to have to go dig out that book again.
