    I went to an estate sale today and look what I found for a total of $5.00. There are 49 of the 9 patch blocks and about half of them are hand pieced. The larger pieces are also hand pieced. I am one lucky lady today!

    There were 49 of these.

    NEAT! Looks kind of 'vintage.' Too bad the sewer putting all that work into them never got to finish it. Maybe you will do so for her? :)

    I am so excited! But it breaks my heart to know that someone spent all that time piecing these blocks and no one cared enough to want to keep them. :( :(
