An Unusual Orphan....

and as we know quilt blocks, like kids, come in many sizes, shapes and reasons to be. Today's Orphan Train quilt is from Ila at Kool Quilts.If I understand correctly, the Orphan block is the Big E. Here are Ila's words to describe this, her OLDEST UFO...*VBS*The pattern is from the Little Quilts book "Around the House."

I've been terrible at keeping my word to get back here daily, but I have another use for orphan blocks from Rosemarie that I do PROMISE to share tomorrow *VBS*
***Post a Note*** Ila says it's not a big E, it's a castle...dahhhh! Must be I need my vision checked! Or maybe I've had it checked too many times and am still seeing "the big E"...LOL. Sorry Ila!
