Checkerboards and process

Next UFO that was calling to me:  I've got eleven of these 64-patch units.  Not the right number to make a bed quilt.  So I'm looking for the basket of four-patches I make as leader/enders, so I can make a few more while I cogitate.

I've also got 10 of these HSTs, which are the same size as the four-patches.  So I added them along one short side of the six checkerboard blocks that were already sewn together:

 And I have some other odd 4.5" blocks in a drawer.  Here are some examples.

I'm going to see if I can utilize a few of these as well.  Maybe I'll get a lap or twin sized quilt out of these!

Looks like you are off to a really GOOD start on an Orphan Train type quilt Sara. You're doing exactly what I do with donated(plus mine) orphan blocks. Combinding projects with odds, ends and spacers gives you a great way to get that stuff used.
Thanks a million for the lovely letter and pic, regarding family *VBS* Sorry not to have answered, been trying to find some picture I can send you...LOL. Not lucky enough to have the type your family had taken. Soon!! Hugs, Finn

I love the HST's down the side of the checkerboard blocks! It will be exciting to see how this develops :- )
