Using some orphans...

Orphan blocks, of course.  Crystal put out a call for orphan blocks on her blog.  In looking for some to send her, I decided to put together a quilt from some of the orphans I've gotten.
I'm not much of a piecer, but I had some blocks to send her along with more fabric squares that I had used to make the blocks.  I believe they were Liberty of London fabrics that just didn't inspire me.  

I also finally got a longtime project done.  Using leftover tiles from window sills here I did some work on this little table which is now residing under the clothes line to hold the basket when I hang out clothes.  Now I'm inspired to get to work on a couple of other tables that have been waiting patiently for me to be inspired!

Got another two quilts done.  This one from Patty E.  Thank you friends for blocks, pieces parts, and tops.  I still have a stack of tops in my queue.

This lovely quilt is Tove's.  I wouldn't have the staying power to make so many four-inch blocks for a queen sized quilt! 
I also scored this stack of fabrics (including a couple of batks) at the thrift store in Moriarty.  The blue sunflower was a perfect fit for binding Tove's quilt.  (I hope she thinks so too. 

Now back to cooking...Pat, Sandy (newly transplanted to Estancia), and Patty (returning to Oklahoma) are coming for dinner.
