Pieces of the Past
I have a small collection of quilts made from antique blocks.
I have purchased the blocks at quilt shows and on ebay.
I use new reproduction fabric to bring the blocks together
to create a new piece of the past. Over the next several days
I am going to share my collection with you. Please keep in
mind that there are no patterns and that most of the fabric
 used is no longer available. Enjoy my collection.

  4. Im excited to see them. One of my earlier quilts was made that way, and it is one of my favorites. Repros are so great now, that I'm sure to be inspired in the next few days.
