I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Hi, Thank you girls for such constructive ideas, I certainly will b trying a few.  You know what it's like, when your head just gets stuck for ideas, that's where I was.  Have been very busy with training in one of our prisons, I come home exhausted, and have no energy left, they sap it all.

I hope you are all prepared for Christmas, and want to wish you all peace, joy and Good Health for the coming year. Ttfn marianne

Since you mentioned orphan blocks Sheila,  Here is what I did with a few of mine.  Going to give them to a few people at Christmas.  I have a big box of them, but ran out of insulbrite.  I used both cotton batting and insulbrite inside.  They are quick and easy because most of the piecing is done.  JUst add a border to make them bigger and voila.

Sherri, I LOVE the ornamental Deer! Cute, cute, cute. I just love off the wall things.

Marianne - You could use the mis-matched (or oddball, as I call them) blocks in backings, pillows, wall hangings, oh - sew many things. If they're about 10" squares, check out a you-tube video by the Gourmet Quilter. She's got one on making zipper pouches. I've done them in the past and they're such a snap to make. In fact, I've been thinking of doing some for the gals at work this year for Christmas. I'm tired of seeing what I give them hanging on the walls of their cubicles instead of being used. My thought is, why would you hang up a zipper pouch?? We will see...

Really cute, Carol.

Sherri, you could use the missed matched blocks to make quilted bags or use one to accent an apron. Perhaps turn the blocks into hot pads.

Thanks Carol. Same to you and your family.

He's cute -- and I'll give you a little extra.  Merry Christmas (and Happy Thanksgiving), Sherri!

This is as much Christams spirit as I get.

Hi, has anyone any ideas what I could do with a selections of pieced squares about 10 inches.  Non of them really match, but don't want to just get rid, I would like some ideas, please.

Catching up on the comments of the last few days.   I think I have had my sewing room on all levels of my current home.  UPstairs in a spare bedroom.   Didn't care for that ,  there was carpet on the floor then and that doesn't play well with all the pins that I drop.  Then I tried fixing up a corner of the basement.  That was depressing,  no windows and out of the main area of the house, it is not a finished basement.  Finally after retiring I transformed my office into a sewing space.  it is just off the dining room, so I can be involved in whatever is going on at home,  keep an eye on whatever is cooking on the stove. And getting  up constantly to hear whatever it is my spouse has just asked me. I did finally start sewing again this week.  I counted the blocks I have been piecing off and on for months for the Bonnie HUnter Blue Ridge Beauty, and I found that I was only 4 shy. So stitched those up and began laying the top out on the design wall.  Which isn't big enough to put all on so I have to do it in sections.  And that is a challenge,  because proper orientation of the blocks is prime.  I have ripped out a row or two on the way.
