Well, this is my first post of the new year and also, coincidentally, my 100th post to the blog. So I guess that's a small milestone to celebrate.
Ok, readers, I need your help. Take a look at these photos:
My mom has 122 of these quilt "blocks" (?) that my great-grandmother stitched by hand and never used. Obviously that's way too many for a quilt. And since there are so many, and there are also eleven great-grandchildren, Mom thought maybe she should split them up and make something for each of us. Any ideas? How does one put them together? We were talking about maybe appliqueing them onto something else rather than trying to stitch each of those corners to eachother. Has anyone else attempted anything like this? Mom was considering making wall-hangings. Other thoughts? We would love any ideas you have.
I really like the vintage prints on the blocks, and some of the color palettes are pretty great too (pink and brown, just my thing right now). I wonder what she had in mind when she was stitching all of these together! Did she have a project planned, or was this just something she did to use up leftover scraps of fabric and to pass the time? I suppose we'll never know.
