Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!
Well sewred, I have some 4.5" squares from the same era that you may have if you like. They were given to me and I don't have a specific project for them. If they would help you finish your project as you want it I would be happy to send them to you. I threw some away I thought might be blends but some that I kept may be as well. Most are brights, then there are some blue floral prints and a purple print. There is a big stack of coordinating florals. The flowers are the same and there are 3 different background colors, a red, a green, and a blue. Again they are bright and there is enough to make a good size quilt with them. Those I believe are a blend (didn't wrinkle when I washed and dried them) and are vibrant 70s colors. PM me if any of these appeal to you.

I wanted to post my orphan blocks that I would like to swap. These were blocks made for swaps and we didn't have enough participate so we got our own blocks back. I have one of the Christmas Geese, 4 of the middle one, it is called the Salt Lake City Block, and 2 of the Leaves and Diamonds block. These are 12 1/2 inch blocks. I would like to see what others have to swap if you could please post them. Thanks, Vinae
Has anyone mentioned using scrapes and making what they call 'dryer sheet' quilts?
No matter your tradition, religion or spiritual beliefs ... beauty, joy and music can transcend all!
May I suggest using something else for foundation then the dryer sheets. They are highly flamable and many people are severely allergic to dryer sheets/fabric softner.
I do not know what "dryer sheet" quilts. I have orphan blocks I would like to trade. Some are spring, some are Christmas and others. I have Christmas blocks: ( 4) 12 1/2", (2) 9 1/2", (1) 6/12". Spring blocks: (13) 12 1/", (4) 9 1/2", (1) 8", (3) 6 1/2". Misc.: (3) 121/2", (2) 9 1/2", (9) 6 1/2", (4) 5", and (3) 4 1/2" blocks I would like to trade. If someone wants to trade, please let me know.
This is a scrappy that I have been working on. It is really easy and it just takes a 1 1/4 inch strip of two colors to make two 6 inch blocks. If anyone is interested, I could give more details. It is great for small left overs. Or if you have 2 1/2 inch jelly roll strips you could cut two in half lengthwise. I just love the contrast and pattern it creates.
Lovely javin22 Could you posted a tute on his thread how to make these blocks?
