Six Dressed Up Orphan Babies
I have six blocks for donating. They took me longer to make than I expected…I think mainly because the pieces are smallish. I kept having to add and add to get them big enough to trim! Over the years I have tamed my scraps into usable sizes, so don’t have many larger chunks. I have many tubs of tiny strings and crumbs, but knew they would take a lot of pieces and stitching to get to 9″ and I didn’t want to cut yardage/fat quarters, or send someone blocks with a million seams. The first three made were the fairly controlled log-cabiny ones, and I LOVE them, am hard-pressed to let them go. So made some more crazier ones. I can see a re-visit to this size and “pattern”in the future!
If you are sitting on the fence about making these…don’t overthink them, just grab a handful of scraps and sew for 15 or 20 minutes!
