Moving right along....

into year #2 of this railroad journey, and a new view of two previous Orphan Train quilts.Patti, of Quilting is my Passion was one of the first to jump on board last June when I began this challenge. I know she had some doubts about working with her many bits, pieces and orphans. But that didn't stop her. This lovely quilt(with a wool batt no less) graces the camper bed of her DH, Fred.
And this second quilt is just across the aisle on Patti's bed! Yup, she really went to town with those orphan blocks. Say what you will about quilts with all matching blocks and co-ordinating colors, I LOVE the spontaneous joy in these quilts made from "spare parts". Gee Whiz, we were doing this before Freddy and Gwen came out with their book *VBS* I'm not sure how Patti has her posts catagorized, but visit her blog and read about all the neat orphan block and string quilts she has made in this past year, and then JUMP ON BOARD, join us and sew up those orphan blocks!

Patti's crumb quilts are always amazing.

Jump on board? I'm ready to hop in, climb under and hunker down...boy, do these looking pretty as well as inviting!! Now, that I've met Patti and know what a wonderful person she is, as well as phenomenal quilter I'd jump on this 'Orphan Train' anytime..especially if Patti was teaching quilt classes and Fred was driving...and paying for the gas ;) These quilts are truly gorgeous, that woman has an eye for color as well as design!!

These crumb quilts really are wonders to behold. Snuggling up under one is like something old and familiar and yet new and different each time -- there's so much to see and experience in each one!
