DD#1 sent me more of these vintage (hand sewn) blocks made by her Great Gram Sadie and Great Aunt Lilly…paternal side of the family. I measured, spray starched & ironed each one.. the smallest being 6 inches square.
I do recommend the above step before cutting/ squaring up any block you are working with.
Next I will cut some 6 inch white blocks.. and put these all together on my design board.. I tried out a sashing around each block, but that wasn’t enough to keep the blocks from fighting with each other for attention. Plus I’ll get a bigger quilt..
This design board is small and what you see is only 1/4 th the size of a double bed . Thus I take photos, print them out and put them together so I can make changes where I need to..
**NOTE**-The 20’s / 30’s fabrics are really busy, thus the separation of a white square gives your eye resting places before focusing on the next block.
