Victorious Fool in Hartford

Here are the last three weeks worth of blocks done during the wee hours this morning.

Week 39~ Fool's Square-Made with leftover half square triangles and 2&1/2" squares from my scrap bin. It goes with nothing and will be added to my growing collection of orphans.

Week 38~ Nelson's Victory-Or maybe I should call it Nelson in Drag! Very feminine fabrics. I made this with leftovers again so it measures 8" and I didn't bother reading the directions.

Week 37~Hope of Hartford-I'm hopeless. For this one I carefully read the directions and followed them.....I thought. Somehow my color placement ended up wrong and the darn thing is spinning in reverse. Oh well, just hold it up to a mirror and it will be correct.

At least I got through all three of these block without ever using my seam ripper. That's a major accomplishment for me!

I like them all. I am thinking of an orphan quilt, myself. At least all of yours seem to have some yellow in common!

Great blocks! Those orphan blocks really pile up, don't they? I think an orphan quilt is in my future too.

Maybe we should all put our orphan blocks in a giant bag and ... no, charity quilts are a far better idea - besides, some of the "orphans" are quite lovely - they juat don'r go with anything else!
Your Fool's Puzzle came out nicely, J.

Congratulations on the no seam ripper for these blocks.

Maybe at the end of the year we could post all of our orphan blocks that don't go with anything and aren't planned for anything and perhaps someone else might have a home for them.
