Make a home for your orphaned blocks!

Orphaned blocks can find their way into any quilter's life. Whether they are leftover from an unfinished project, collectible blocks found at a garage sale, or even antique blocks discovered in your great-aunt's attic, Tricia Lynn Maloney will teach you how to care for your orphan blocks, and make a home for them.

Orphan Block Quilts includes:

*14 projects, with 11 variations. From full-size bed quilts to table runners, these projects incorporate blocks from the 1880s to the 1950s.

*Instructions on caring for your orphan blocks. Find out about the common problems you might encounter with your orphans, and how to work with them.

*Advice on designing a setting. Not only does Tricia provide guidance on creating companions blocks and finding companion fabric, she also offers insight on how she overcame the design challenges of each project.

*The story behind each quilt. In addition to historical information about various fabrics and blocks, Tricia shares the stories of two of the blockmakers, providing a precious glimpse of the lives sewn into the seams of the blocks.

If you don't have any orphan blocks, Tricia gives you advice on locating potential sources, whether from your own family or online. And it's easy to substitute brand-new blocks, and make a new quilt from the ground up. Check out the 11 variations in the book, where Tricia did just that!

Whether your orphan blocks are antique, vintage, collectible or simply leftover from a recent project, you can sew the perfect setting that will let the blocks shine!
