It truly is a miss-mosh of squares, half square pieces, tumbler pieces, embroidery blocks, some string blocks, some paper pieced diamond.
I sorted and stacked and bagged all the smaller scraps. But, now what? I know what to do with leftover food! (gobble-gobble!)---but, I think these leftovers are getting moldy!
The Orphan block drawer.
Leftover 8" batik tumbler block pieces. Maybe I'll have enough for a lap quilt.
Leftover from this quilt (below).
Quilt of Valor
Oh and I have these baggies of of assorted pinwheels of various sizes.
Some paper pieced diamonds leftover from this.
Here are more orphan blocks I didn't remove from the drawer for pictures. Just waiting. Some are already sewn, and some are cut half square triangles to sew together. I wonder what I will ever do with all this stuff? or worse yet, why I can't just get rid of it. Sort of like the refrigerator/freezer ? You keep thinking you will use that little dab of mashed potatoes, or whatever. Instead it has to get moldy before you can dump it.
