When I spoke at the Linda Showman Benefit at Inspirations April 30th, a lovely lady gave me a large Ziploc tote of goodies. I've misplaced her card so I can't name her here. If she reads this, "Thank you again!" The tote was full of vintage 30's-40's fabrics and lots of quilt blocks to add to my collection of antique blocks. I'm showing pictures of a few. Some were too large to scan on my scanner. There were whole sets of some of the patterns, like Dresden Plate in varied designs and sizes, Double Wedding Ring, and Ohio Star. She said she needs to thin out her sewing room. I'm a very lucky lady to be the recipient of such treasure.
This tree block was a single, but I love it! There is more background fabric beyond the tree that wouldn't fit on my scanner. It's a 12" block and amazingly, each piece is appliqued! I've never seen this pattern appliqued.
That's all for now. Keep stitching!
