A Different Kind of Scraps...

 When cleaning the sewing room sometimes you find things you'd forgotten all about. Or is that just me?  I stumbled across my stash of UFOs and abandoned projects and discovered it was a lot bigger than I remembered! Oh bother.

I quickly put together this top from a dozen abandoned blocks and some donated fabric.  I think the red brings together all the different florals. Hope so anyway.

Next I pulled out these two large Swoon blocks a blog reader sent me and started rifling through my orphan blocks for others that might play well with them.  This orphan quilt is still in the design stages ;) Happy weekend!

Linking to Oh Scrap! and Design Wall Monday.


  1. Sounds like a treasure trove of possibilities there! The floral quilt looks like it will be a lot of fun for someone to cuddle with.

  2. Wow, your pile of orphan blocks is much prettier than mine! I love swoon blocks - these scrappy projects are going to be so nice. Will you donate or keep these??

  3. That touch of red was a brilliant move! Thanks for sharing all your inventive ways to use orphan blocks with Oh Scrap!

  4. I wish my orphan blocks had anything in common at all. Yours are playing very nicely together!
