The Orphan Block Project: Anna's Blocks

Today's blocks came from the lovely Anna. Anna loves bright and saturated colors, black and white included. She also owns a darling etsy shop where she sells some really neat quilts and pillow covers!

Anna sent a wide variety of blocks...Alturas blocks hand appliqued on linen:

Really great blocks, right? I love that the blocks were all sewn with different techniques. So far, the variety of styles and techniques have exceeded my expectations. It's been fun to see how other people sew, what fabric they choose, what blocks and styles they like. I guess that was (obviously) going to be part of the fun but I didn't really think about that aspect until now.

Thank you Anna!
