Orphan Blocks

We all have them – one (or two) lonely Orphan Blocks that never quite made it into a quilt. The block may be from a project you created, or it may be left over from Grandma’s scrap bag. It may not be your favorite color combination, or the seams may not be as straight as you would like. But you can’t bring yourself to throw the block out – what can be done with it?

Bring your Orphan Block(s) to Ladybug’s Cottage to get ideas for finishing that lonely orphan block into a finished item. Quilt Restoration specialist Jessie Taliaferro will help you come up with a creative way to use your block(s).

If you don’t have an Orphan Block but would like to participate, Jessie will have a selection of orphan blocks from which to choose.

Please call or come in at least a week in advance to register for the session of your choice. Come hear this fantastic program and learn what you can do with your Orphan Block.

Since then, Jessie has restored, rebuilt or repurposed over 200 quilts. Jessie is a member of the Capital Quilters Guild and the Chair of the Vintage Quilt Study Group.
