Happily Scrapily

I am on orphan control lately.  I took all of my scrap four patch blocks (I thought it was all of them) and added some wild sashing.  The picture doesn't show how fabulous it is.  Wow, makes me smile.

After I assembled this top I gathered all my orphans and..... Lots of them.  So it was time to get organized by size.  So they were sorted and bagged by size.  Now I can concentrate on getting them used up.

Maestro is making sure I do it correctly.


  1. great use of scraps once again - I love all the colors

  2. Wow--I never would have thought that sashing would work, but it is wonderful!!
    You have quite the collection of orphan blocks!

  3. What a great way to put 4-patches together! I have a ton of them that I put together years ago and I really like your idea. Maybe I'll copy it some day!


Gribbit - I'd love to hear from you.
