I found a Square in a square block given to me by a New Zealand quilting friend as an example of this block. I decided not to add it to my Orphan blocks but to 'Use it up"!
So yesterday I created a block which will be made into a 12.5" QAYG block for Soy Amado. I also used strings and leftover piano keys and added scraps from my recently sorted stash:
I made this larger than the size required because I find that QAYG takes up a bit of the size and the blocks finish a bit smaller. I can always trim it to size after quilting.
I have been amassing a huge amount of part-finished Crumb blocks so I finished off 12 more of those:
Finally I had a splurge on String blocks using phone book paper as a base - 24 of them:
All made from my strips stash (recently added to !). I think this photo illustrates beautifully the colours I use most: blue, pink and green!
