Scrapaholics Unite

If your scrap bins are anything like mine, they are overflowing. When I saw Amanda's Scrap Vortex QAL I decided I would try to make a dent in my scrap bins and use up some of them.
As I started arranging my blocks I thought it might be fun to incorporate some of my orphan blocks in this eclectic quilt.
I'm squaring up my blocks to 12-1/2". With three more blocks to assemble, I will have a 5x7 layout and a good sized quilt.
I'm linking up with Leanne and Nicky for Scraptastic Tuesday.

What a great idea to use orphan blocks. I really like this quilt idea but adding the orphan blocks makes it that much better. Thanks for the wonderful idea.

Yours looks great Di! And how clever to use some orphan blocks too! My only worry with making one of these is creating more scraps!!!

I made two NICU sized quilts but I didn't think about the orphan blocks. Back to the sewing machine! Thanks for the idea!
