Typically, I use mine for donation quilts. I’ve used the Circle of Nine idea.
Sometimes I have just arranged them on the design wall then filled in around them with background fabric.
Sometimes I’ve even cut them into circles to applique onto a quilted background.
Then my friend Jerri told me she had made some of her orphan blocks into a quilt back! Great idea!
The next time I had a quilt needing a back, I took the blocks from the top of the pile and sewed them together. Then I surrounded them with pieces of quilt backing left from other projects.
Voila! It may be more “interesting” than beautiful, but it used up a lot of orphans and scraps. And it’s done!
