    If your blocks are all the same and you have a lot of pieces to use as well, I would try four patch between them or some other block that is compatible.........now lets see some pictures :D

    Thats a big challenge, anxious to see the finished quilt.
    My Mom gave me 25, 10 inch blocks of flowers embroidered on muslin to do something with. After she died I made a king quilt w/them, that was my first attempt at quilting, wish I had waited til I knew more. A local shop helped me when I called for advise and had it quilted there.

    I had the pleasure of quilting one of my grandmother's quilt tops for my baby sister. Hers was the only one Grandmother hadn't finished. My mother had kept it stored for 45 years. It was a 3 generation project when finished and my sister cried. What a heartwarming experience. I thanked God for the opportunity every day I worked on it.

    Can't wait to see the photos.
    I have all the partially pieced tops & odds & ends that were my grandmothers. Boxes of them that I had to practically BEG my non-quilting aunt for and I haven't done anything with them. I have been thinking about them a lot lately. I've been worrying that the fabric is going to rot if I don't get started soon.

    Hey Scott, I was browsing a web site that was posted in the classified area (Thanks Ruth Camp), I saw some feedsack fabric and thought of you. Maybe some of this would work with the Mother Goose blocks. There are 3 on the bottom of the this page, and one more at the top of the next. Plus...its on sale :) which is never a bad thing.
    Here ya go...hope it helps.
