What To Do With Orphan Blocks?

If you're like me you have a stash of orphan blocks. You know, the one you wanted to try before you made the pattern or sampling different fabrics first. Whatever the reason they're stacking up. I asked some of my quilting buddies how they used their blocks. Here are some of the ideas they shared with me.
Mini wall hangings, mug rugs (coasters), pot holders, pillows, hot pads, table runners, applique to a sweatshirt, and placemats. One lady made placemats and donated them to Meals on Wheels. What a neat treat. If you have any ideas on how to use orphan blocks please let me know and I'll share them with others. Feel free to send pictures of your samples to jaybeehive@yahoo.com . Would love to see them.
Thanks for visiting,
