things are pretty quiet all across blogland on the Orphan blocks front. Maybe I can stir up some interest with these *VBS*If you haven't browsed at Hamilton Books offerings, you should. I came across this book listed there for sale(brand new) at $11.95. It's a collection of quilts from Minnesota. I did mention it to Carol E. as I thought she might be interested. Go to Hamilton Book and scroll down the left sidebar til you come to "Needlecrafts". Click on that and you will get a list of the needlecraft pages they offer. Click on "quilting"(or whatever you are interested in). Usually there are about 200 book titles to look through. I was looking to see if anything of Gwen Marston was available, as I've gotten her books there before. Their prices are incredible and the shipping is very reasonable. I've done business with them for several years and been full satified every time. No affilication...yada,yada,yada.
This little beauty is growing into a "premmie" quilt over at Sue's house. It's techniccally NOT an orphan block quilt, but it's fine to work with "stuff" even when that means a collection of kiddie prints. It's look wonderful and ever so sweet, Sue!
This old darling was made from a 9 patch block swap. I decided to use up as much of my "scrap" black as I could and there are several 'shades' of black in the lattice! All solid blacks, but many shades. I utility quilted it, way back when, and it now lives with one of my gandsons.
