Poor little Orphan blocks needed a purpose (don't we all), so I decided to use these up as per the lovely Katy Jones' recent tutorial on her Sizzix blog. Some super sized pouches, just bigger versions of the little extra pouch I made for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap (below)
I figured they would make really good project bags for my fabrics (to keep them together), as at the moment, this is the kind of thing I'm using to keep specific projects together.
Not very inspiring now is it? And this is how those blocks look now, once I had added on some borders, and made them up (just a couple of hours work for all 3).
These are fab, and a great way to remember a fun project, or in the future I might be tempted to make an extra block and make them into quilt bags to keep them in, now there's an idea!

She generously offered the Tanya Whelan fabrics for someone to make into a quilt- and I was super quick and got in there first! I hope I can do them justice, I've already started chopping, so watch this space.
And finally, (breathe Angela), I received this gorgeous selection of Low Volume fabrics from the Charm Swap Laura held over on Flickr, aren't they just perfect!
