my friend Carol, of Scraps And Pieces Of Our Lives. Carol is a brand new face on the orphan train. Welcome aboard Carol, happy to have you with us *VBS* This is Carol's first orphan blocks quilts. She's been following our progress for awhile and decided to hop aboard.
"I only had 8 flower squares which I fussy cut. I kept all the scraps from each square. I needed a block in the middle, so decided I would use up those scraps along with some of leftover scraps which I had used in the 8 blocks. The outcome....the middle block."
"I made each block 15 inches so that I would have a fairly nice size quilt. All pieces in this quilt were material that had been given to me or scraps in my scrap box. Cost for this quilt...approx. $2.00 for the batting & thread."
"This is my first "orphan train" quilt. It will be sent up north for my Quilts for the North project."
"I want to thank Finn (my dear friend) for the Orphan Train blog, for her creativity in quilting and for encouraging us to quilt with scraps and orphan blocks. Your the best!!" Thanks Carol! *VBS*
