Ty and I went to a few garage sales this weekend, and I found a quilter! She really is a quilter, so she was not parting with stash, but she did have a stack of nine old blocks that were sold for $1.00. These are from an exchange in the 80's. Some have the quilter's date of birth, like my favorite one, pictured above. Isn't it sweet? This next one is not signed, but oh, so cute.
Here is one all the way from New Zealand:
And one from Washington State, my old stomping grounds:-)
This next one I found interesting too. It is a bit 3D - the edges are folded over, not at the seam, but 1/4" from it so as to form 'flaps'. It was only partially finished, hand-stitched on a muslin foundation with penciled gridlines.
I do love a good save, so I added a two more rounds to make it 6.5", and will mail this in to the Add-a-Border Robin I participate with.
Sharing these today with those partying with Lyn for BOMs Away, and with Jen for Building Blocks Tuesday!
Thanks for stopping by and hope yours is a great & sunny week!
