More Orphan Blocks

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: 

Linking up to Crazy MomQuilts.
