Orphan Block QOV finish.... and Finished ( or not) Friday

 Back in October I started playing with some orphan blocks and a panel.... here ... Not all of the blocks were my Orphans - but all of the blocks needed some love.


So I measured and pieced, and measured some more - and Ta Da!

It is now a Complete finish!! 

( for me, one of my QOV partners in crime will bind it because they are awesome)


And I even took a photo all by myself on a windy blustery ... but! Sunny day!!


I really didn't want to do custom quilting on this one - I really wanted to get it in the line to be finished.. and then get back to my client quilts. So I hemmed and Hawed - and I really like the way this Pantograph turned out on it. I used a Greyish/Cream thread and I think it just sunk into the quilt. 

Now to our group sew day to be bound and ta da - It will be loving a Veteran soon as a Quilt of Valor!

Oh and.... I didn't empty the orphan block bin ( sigh)

Now it is your turn!!!

Wow! Fantastic finish! I was trying to figure out which blocks were orphans. They are all too gorgeous to be orphans and they are so color coordinated.

Nice finish!

You did a fabulous job and that panto is perfect. I love that you have binding angels! I do mine almost all by machine now, and it doesn't bother me so much. Happy Fri-yay!

This is so beautiful. It tempts me to do the next Blockheads project as a QoV. I hope I can match your beauty!

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

I remember when you were puzzling the quilt top together. I love how it came together and the quilting is great. And hooray for a QOV partner in crime binding it! :)

Linda Swanekamp said...

The quilt looks like you planned all those blocks. Very graphic, great job!

Bonnie said...

Very nice Alycia. Great idea. Too bad I don't have 12" blocks and a bunch in the same color!

Sara said...

A wonderful way to use up some of the orphan blocks. It does look totally planned.

Fabulous use of orphans for a great QOV finish

Hi Alycia, what a great quilt. It looks like the blocks all found a good home! One day, you'll be ready to make another one with the rest of the orphans! Thanks for the linking party.
