Looking for Miss Inspiration

Since there is so much going around on the web these days about orphan blocks, I thought it might be a good idea to glance into my bin to see what might be there. To my surprise, there is actually more than what I thought.

The Mariner’s Compass and lighthouse blocks (bottom of photo) will become a tote bag.

The rest, well, I can’t find any inspiration with them for now. I’ll hang them up on my design wall and see what I can do with them (I am determined).
Visit to see what is going on with orphan blocks and you will have loads of inspiration after one visit.

Speaking of inspiration, thank you Froggie for your compliment. I have such fun with my quilting and when I started this blog, my wish was to inspire folks to have fun with their quilting too. My feeling is that if you have fun, then inspiration comes along very quickly.

Leaving Comments

Thank you to everyone who has left comments on my blog. It is my custom to reply to all comments ….. as long as there is a reply-to address.

If you have a blog, go to your blog (don’t sign in) and leave yourself a test comment on your last post. Then sign in to your email and see if your message has your personal email address or just your name with a ‘’ beside it.

Great blocks for a tote bag! I have very few orphans blocks. I am not sure if that is good or bad...

You have a real mixture there Rose Marie, don't think I'm going to be much help though.

It will be interesting to see what will come out of this.

I love the little lighthouse blocks. They are just great. They will make a very cute little bag :))

I think you need to put orphan blocks up on a design was for a week or two and just keep looking at them before making any real decisions - LOL

Those orphan blocks are great fun. I think this will make a wonderful quilt. Enjoy.

It's fun to hear someone else share what they do with their "orphans". I thought, for awhile, I was the only one crazy enough to save the pieces of blocks and stray blocks that I do. Thanks for your inspiration and thanks for all your comments about marking. It is SOOO helpful to get other people's opinions and experiences.
