There’s Nothing Better Than . . .

. . . an old box stuffed with vintage quilt pieces. In this case, thousands of 1″ squares purchased on ebay that some nice quilter neatly strung together with double thread. What was she going to make with all these postage stamp sized pieces?

Fortunately, and I love it when this happens, she made one little block so I know that she was planning to make a Scrappy Double Nine-Patch. Unfortunately, she did not use a template to cut out any of the squares, so my blocks will be even smaller after I manage to trim the gazillion tiny pieces. Still . . . thank you, unknown 1930s quilter.
