Holly didn't sign up for the Orphan Train Challenge, but we 'hooked' her anyway. Like many of us, she has a few orphan blocks and some UFO's that just don't appeal any more.
To figure out a way to combine them into a unified top is exactly what the Orphan Train challenge is all about. *VBS*
Holly is the one who spied the marvelous antique orphans quilt at the Sisters,Oregon show, and brought us back the picture. She blogs at http://andsewitis.blogspot.com/ She's done wonderful things with Tonya's wonky letters, including an Airplane quilt that she's currently handquilting.
This particular quilt grew in sections. Just one of the ways you can combine those orphan blocks. There was one more picture at her blog(check it out there!!) of the hand embroidered large square in the upper corner. Blogger seems to only want to handle 4 at a time...so I left it behind. Holly says this is a very big quilt....the numbers slip my mind at the moment, but there are lots more details on her blog. I think it's the post before the airplane quilt. Way to go Holly!!!
