Abandoned quilt blocks

At our last DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting, members were encouraged to bring "orphan blocks" that they were not using and want to donate to a larger project. I got excited about some of the blocks that were created in bright colors and started playing with the layout for a potential quilt. Aren't these blocks amazing?? Each time I picked up a block I wondered why on earth they had been abandoned. Members of our guild make gorgeous blocks and I am so excited to play with them. This is what I came up with at the meeting. 

I brought all of theses (plus some other) blocks home with me. I can't wait to lay them all out again and start experimenting with the negative space and hopefully piecing this quilt together.


  1. That's such a cool quilt. I love the way you have the different sized blocks together.

  2. i had to perform a row-ectomy on my HST Journey, so that's where that came from. :)

  3. thank you for taking custody of some of those blocks :)
