This morning I had a good lie-in, still recovering from all the excitement of yesterday. I then spent a pleasant hour blog surfing and ran across Patti at Quilting is My Passion. She has posted pictures of blocks she made in the 90's. Something struck a chord with me and I suddenly realized that they were the same as some hand sewn blocks I bought several years ago at an antique store in Illinois.
I often wonder how it is that they didn't find their way into a quilt. Were they too wonky? (The Y-seam in the lower left hand corner isn't flat and they are not really square.) Were they leftovers from a finished quilt? Were they the start of a quilt that never got finished?
Every so often I take them out just to look at. I've never been able to decide what to do with them. I guess I just like having them and trying to guess the story behind them.
They are, by the way, very similar to Brackman #3936 except that the center square is the same size as the surrounding squares. Patti said she thought the name was Grandmother's Choice.
