I am relatively new to quilting, so I don't know a lot about older patterns, appliques, etc. I went to an auction last year, the woman who passed away was 94 years old and a lifelong quilter. I got a ton of vintage fabrics from her, including about 25 Sunbonnet Sues, all put together and turned under. I also got about a hundred of the leaf/flower petal cut-outs and hundreds and hundreds of these strips. Does anyone know what the leaf cut-outs are for, or what I could use them for? And the strips are a heavy canvas type fabric, cotton, but heavier than the usual quilting fabric. They are wider on one end and they taper to the other end.
Can anyone give me any idea of what these were for? Thanks much in advance,
