Thanks to all whom have expressed interest over the past week!
I have these all boxed up and just need a new home to ship them to.


I posted the original and complete story on this fabric here.

This sweet vintage package of DWR blocks can easily be yours!

As you will read in my earlier post about this unique bundle, I was the lucky recipient of a large supply of fabric yardage and I found a bag of these gems inside!

I need to note that these are remarkably clean: no smells only a stain or two that I could see.  I found no bugs or signs of mice in the package.  Kudos to this lady for keeping this collection so clean for so long!

There are 5 piles of this size of blocks, each pile has approximately 100, yes one hundred blocks!
The remaining fabric here in the drawer consists of 99% cut wedges like you see on the bottom left.  The rest of the fabric pieces are a variety of small scraps. (Bottom right)  
I found a few centers and melons in the box, that could possibly be used for a pattern.  There is also a pattern cut from a newspaper.  I couldn't find a date on it, but there is an ad for a car salesman at a dealership I remember as a kid--it sold out in the mid 60's.  



~~~

This pile of about 100 blocks are a different size.
 Wedges are longer and more narrow.

 Just look at all these fun vintage fabrics~

I love these pink fabrics and after seeing several of them, decided it was "Jack and the Beanstock."  


So, there you go!  Approximately 550-600 Vintage Double Wedding Ring blocks with extra scraps.
I can ship it anywhere in the US for about $10 and anything over that will be use to purchase batting for Quilts of Valor quilts.

I have been quilting for Quilts of Valor since 2008 and quilt at least 2 per month.  My hubby and I supply all the batting for the tops I quilt.  QOV is entirely a volunteer organization and this is a contribution we make.

If you are interested in placing a bid on this awesome vintage package just leave a comment in this blog or my earlier blog post or you may e-mail be at  bunkhousequilts@atcnet.net.

This special package deserves a Home Sweet Home!

Oh this is just too precious! I love those fabrics! Not sure about making a DWR, but with those cutie-patootie fabrics, who can resist?

Take care!
