Here is my progress on the appliqued blocks.
I put a 1 inch border around each one and then pieced them into my lighter fabric.
I will do the same with the other 3. This will be the top and bottom of the quilt.
The white fabric is a nice quality. The edges were torn, making me appreciate my rotary cutter. I starched, pressed and squared up these blocks before adding an assortment of different browns for the borders.
...back when selvages were only 1/4 inch (and fabric was only 36 inches wide)
I will bet she made these blocks when she got her first zig-zag machine.
I didn't get a machine that did a zig-zag stitch until 1980.
I love this black and tan fabric!
