I ordered some Girl Scout cookies from my friend's daughter and lucky me, they brought over the cookies and a box of fabric scraps last night! Some scraps, orphan blocks and pieces more then a yard. My stash was running low! (ha ha)Guess my DH would disagree with that statement.
It is interesting to
see the variety since the Girl Scouts (12-17 years old) were working
on pajama pants and many of these were scraps from their project.
She often brings me
a box or bag of scraps. I really appreciate having a thoughtful
friend like her.

I attended 2 work days for Project Linus in January and came home with
several quilts that needed binding and a large bag of orphan blocks.
Fun! Here a sample of what's in the bag. Black and whites:
I could see why these got put aside, most are 8”-8½” or 12”-12¾”.
Some slightly less and points not always meeting. Most of the HST
were made with 2 squares, no trimming of the corners and then sewn
with other units. This created 9 layers is some corners. I picked out,
trimmed and resewed. I selected the colorful blocks, I needed sunshine after the cold weather
and a head cold. Resewed a few seams and squared them up to 12”.
I also added 4 wonky blocks. This zebra fabric and the red cornerstones
were added and ended with this:
