scraps from Grandma

This week, Grandma found me a scrap bag with some orphan blocks in it.

I love the background fabric on those bow tie blocks and wish there were more blocks. Or just some of that grey solid so I could make some of my own. I'm thinking I'll assemble them into a lap quilt and bring it up to size with a pieced border made form recycled shirts.

The hearts are going into a baby quilt, and once I count the half square triangles, I'll figure out what I can do with those.

Congrats on adopting the orphans :) Try Kona solids for some of that gray. I bet you could find a close match!

I love seeing someone else "adopt" orphans blocks besides me. I have a big box full, but not enough to make ANYTHING without making lots more. Yours are really nice looking.
