Another Q4 2013 FAL finish

Yay another finish to link up to She Can Quilt and the Q4 2013 FAL.  In my original list, goal number 23 was to do something with a stack of orphan blocks that have lingered for far too long!  So, I decided to turn the butterfly into an Open Wide Pouch:


When looking through all my orphan blocks, the lovely R2D2 jumped out at me and said 'pouch' so I decided that he should be made into a drawstring pouch:


Here are the backs of these two pouches:


I also gave nine blocks away to a lady named Barb.  You see, after reading my blog post about my 'Fabric Fast', she suggested that I could send her any unfinished projects or blocks so she could finish them and incorporate them into a quilt and donate what she makes to charity!  I jumped at the suggestion and sent her nine of my poor orphan blocks that I KNEW I would never use.  I also sent her a couple of fq's and some scraps.  Good effort Barb :)

This means that 11 orphan blocks now a new mom life - yay!  Happy days!

The butterfly block has been turned into a pretty pouch. What a nice idea to let Barb turn the orphan blocks into something useful. Di x
