I hate anything going to waste and that included patchwork blocks.  When I was doing some pattern testing for the Sew A Row Fire Quilt, I ended up with two blocks that weren’t used.  They’d been sitting in the bottom of the box and I just had to do something with them.  I couldn’t let them stay as orphans, unloved and unseen.  This video shows what I did with them, a quick simple project.

With just a little coordinating fabric and some quilting, a stunning cushion cover was created.  Those blocks became part of something that will be loved and treasured.  I didn’t manage to get a photo of the finished cover, as soon as the last stitch on the binding was put in, it had to be wrapped and gifted.

I’d love to hear about how you use your orphan blocks.  Why not share your ideas and photos in the comments below.
