Vintage Quilt Blocks

Since I’m not sewing much of my own things lately,

I thought I’d share a vintage bit of loveliness!

These are string pieced blocks, partially finished, without the background.

Maybe a long abandoned project?

I wondered how old these vintage pieces were,

and found a date on the newspaper prints on the back.

1967, eh? Not bad looking for fifty years old!

There’s enough of the original blocks to make a large lap size quilt.

Maybe one day I can bring myself to tear off the papers and make it!

Until then, I’ll shepherd them carefully!
