History for the Family

qlt blksggma sadie & gauntlillie These are hand sewn blocks from Great Gram Sadie and Great Aunt Lillie. (Robison- paternal side of the Bissett’s)

There are 8 of the star blocks.  (above)   And 15 of the pinwheel blocks (below)

Each measure 6 inches.. some a very scant 6 inch and some 6.5.    It will be a challenge getting them all to fit together into a quilt.. I cry every time I have to trim one of these blocks.

I want to show case each block since they are part of  our  heritage  from a generation now gone.. Fabrics are from the 20’s/ 30’s.      I am hoping this layout does each block justice..  White backing and background is the only way I can think of to manage my problem with saving a bit of history for the family.
