Here are the rest of my orphan "parts and pieces". I just placed them on the floor wherever they fit for now. Definitely looks like enough for a quilt without making any more. If it turns out to be too small after seam allowances are taken up I'll just toss some of my squares and triangle squares around the edges - with maybe a narrow stopper border inside that. Time will tell. For now I'm going to sew on strips to make the parts of equal sizes so they can be joined. Stay tuned - I hope to have a finished top - albeit minus borders - by the end of the day today.

What an interesting group of orphan blocks you have there!!! Can't wait to see the finished quilt. I should lay my mish-mashy orphans out on the floor, though I'm pretty sure I don't have enough for a large quilt yet. Congrats on the weight loss!!!

Wow! I can't believe all the ophan blocks you have! I'll have to dig around my drawers and putll out some of mine too. I'll have to make something but I don't think I'd have enough for a bed cover yet... Isn't it amazing how all the different colors and shapes go together so well!
