Digging Deeper

The orphan blocks have waited long enough.  Poor things. They weren't exciting me very much till after working with them a little longer. Then I wished I had more blocks to make it bigger cause I was liking how it was going. So I dug a little deeper.  I knew I had more orphan blocks but had set them aside to use in a different quilt. I wanted primarily scrappy blocks in this one. Hmmmm. Maybe that would be tooooo many scraps.  Gotta think on that. 

Then after we sorted through all the fabric at church that was recently donated I thought I needed to sort through the fabric in storage here that belongs to the group. I knew I'd find some more pieces and units mixed in with the scraps.    Hmmm. Maybe. This is partially sewn together already. I found that plain strips (like the frame around the bears paw) offers a little relief from all the busy blocks. I'll let it sit for a while. The sun is down now and I want to get downstairs and quilt.

Tuesday I took 10 comfort quilts in for the girls to bind. The pile of quilt tops waiting  here continues to grow. They are not all mine. I brought a few more home to add to my pile. I haven't counted mine in a while. It's not easy cause they aren't all in one pile but scattered around 2 rooms and a closet and suitcases. Many bloggers keep lists  but I'd rather quilt. Usually anyway. So I'm hoping I can get another dozen quilted in the next month or two.

Here's another comfort quilt top that uses my Thirtysomething Onlies units I made when I demonstrated the technique. Does that count as multi-tasking?  As good as I am at that I never did a good job of planning to put my demonstration pieces into  something really useful.

I'm linking with Judy at Patchwork Times and her Linky Party she calls Design Wall Monday and I will see if there is more time to link with any other parties.  They CAN be very inspiring.
