More Orphan Blocks!

I got a whole mess of Orphan Blocks from my fellow guild members as Thank You gifts for organising the BOM program this year!  I have not counted but there's easily over 100 blocks in the pile!  With so many to choose from a lot of possible themes / color schemes have emerged. 

There were a lot of interesting blue and aqua blocks so I've been playing with those.
Here's the first stab at arranging them.
Here's another one.  I usually leave these projects on the wall for awhile so I can look at them and move things around and Hopefully come up with something that works?!
It sounds a bit like I'm whinning, but really it's alot of fun!
Here's another grouping.  This one seemed to grow from the idea of brights and houses.  This one will definetly need more 'massaging'.
Having fun in orphan land!
Happy Tuesday!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. What a great gift! Perfect project to bring up to Sunriver!! ;-))

  2. What a challenge. You have done a really good job arranging them.

  3. Claire, I love the blocks. I posted a comment yesterday but for some reason it disappeared.
    GREAT project.

  4. I am so in awe of people who manage to made sense out of the chaos of orphan blocks, so far that eludes me. You have such a talent for pulling them together.

  5. Hard work getting lots of disparate blocks to work together, but lots of fun at the same time. You are on the right track with these two groups, I think.

  6. Oh Claire, what fun! You have a gift of putting such blocks together to make a smashing quilt.
