Have orphan blocks? Make a trivet or a potholder!
After piecing both of my Little Ruby Quilt Along tops, I had a few spare blocks and jelly roll strips. I was able to find a quilt to use the extra strips on (stay tuned for that) and a construct a baby quilt with the spare blocks.
I still ended up with this spare block, AKA an orphan block.
All I needed was a 2" background strip added around the block.
Two layers of batting and Insul-Bright.
Backing and binding from my scrap stash.
Quick outline quilting.
And I had a finished trivet!
What do you do with your orphan blocks?
