A dear friend of mine, Vera, from our Modern guild knows my passion for everything vintage! I am a big thrift store hunter...a collector of old milk-glass & Pyrex, and old crocheted granny square afghans (seriously). She came across a collection of old quilt blocks, given to her a long time ago, but had never done anything with them.... So she gifted me with them!
No one knows who made them... I have challenged myself to pull out some of my favourite fabrics and re-imagine all of them in new ways!
There are 25 rather plain nine-patch blocks that I am mixing with Denyse Schmidt picnic fabrics, white Kona cotton and some aurafil thread. I plan to make some cute granny square blocks.
They are beautiful. So perfectly pieced.... I plan to use them all. Perfect summer projects.
