Vintage lantern orphan blocks quilt

 When I bought the box of the wedding ring quilt pieces, I also bought a small stack of these lantern blocks. They were still basted and just so charming that I wanted to get them whacked into a quilt ASAP.

Of course it then took me a week to decide on a sashing fabric. And another week on the binding (which I am still not thrilled with bc of the crooked dots.)
 But! At long last they are a quilt.

It's small. A bit smaller than baby sized, larger than doll sized and I am not sure what I will end up doing with it. Maybe it's a sell candidate.
Either way - I am inspired to get more of these orphan blocks into quilts this year.
