One of our speediest participants, Sue whipped these orphan blocks together in record time! I was just astonished at how quickly this became a quilt top....maybe because I am so very slow these days...LOL I think she did a fantastic job!! She did have a lot of orphan blocks, and of course, that gives you the best choices. If you are new to the idea of putting odd sizes together, study how many kinds and sizes she combined. I still am astonished at how many are in this quilt. And it balances beautifully. You should be very, very proud of yourself Sue, you are a first rate maverick type orphan train quilt maker!! I love this quilt top and would have a hard time giving it away.
I've included a couple of extra pictures from the parts of the quilt, for extra ideas of blocks you might make to fill in your orphans. Don't be afraid to use an odd background color. Look how nicely that bluish star 'pops' with that great cheddar background! Sue has the backing made also, and this is ready to go off for machine quilting. Great job Sue! Thanks for sharing with us. I hope you might make another with your pastel blocks....*VBS*
