Vintage love

Old patchwork has me wrapped around her little finger!

When those bits and pieces come into my house....

I HAVE to make them into something!!

I removed the old muslin from these blocks
and replaced the aged and stained pieces for something fresh and clean.
;)

I also added this retro fabric on the back
 that compliments these old blocks so well!!

I love playing with old blocks...
Don't you??

  5. Why wouldn't a gal love old blocks? lol They are so much fun and interpreting them in different ways can challenge a quilter for years. Your block is especially interesting. I enjoy looking for the little ole blocks inside of the big ole block.
