Recently a good friend gifted me with some vintage pieced blocks. Although I appreciate vintage quilts they are not something that I gravitate to. For some reason these blocks spoke to me and I said, "Yes I'll take them". They are not actually blocks, but are foundation pieced X shapes. There is 29 of them, a few will be unusable because of stains and holes, but 25 are in usable condition. Here are a few of them on my design wall.
My plan is to appliqué each X on a four patch of very pale pinks,rusts and oranges. Then piece the blocks together. It will be a very long term project.
I've got kids and grandkids arriving on Wednesday so I will have a house full and very little studio time.
Daily stitching up date.
