Frugal Friday feature....

a very special quilt, made by Orphan Train Volunteer Carol. Carol blogs at Scraps and Pieces of Our lives. She's our newest orphan train volunteer but once she got started she discovered how much fun it is to play with Orphan blocks and offerings. She had sewn many of her scraps into HSTs(half square triangles) and was debating how to use them. Combining them with some donated panel fabric was the perfect solution!! Another lovely quilt that will go off the the organization she supports. It's a Canadian organization and you can read more about it at Carols blog.*VBS* Great job Carol!!

It is, indeed, a wonderful scrappy quilt and a great way to combine orphan blocks with panels and still make everything fit in, beautifully. Carol has such a good heart and a fun blog, too. It's exciting to find so many participating in our Frugal Fridays, whether they know they are, or not ;) Love it!!!!

Thanks Finn and Michele. This was probably one of my favorite quilts to do. I love the whole process of squaring up the HSTs and then figuring out where I wanted them to go. It was a whole lot of fun.
