I knew my grandmother had sent these to me, but I never really looked at them. I've had them for at least 4 or 5 years. I've got 20 17" 8-point star blocks that are hand pieced and are on muslin bases, and 5 blocks that I assume were from a swap as they all have names on them. I've emailed my mom & uncles to see if they recognize any of the names.
Hubs is suggesting I make the star blocks into a quilt & give them to my mom for her birthday (she was born on my grandmother's birthday), but I am a little nervous about that. Would machine piecing the blocks ruin them? What would you use for sashing? And what about quilting them? I am not a hand sewer, so finishing this by hand is not going to happen.
There are also 2 'table' sets, placemats & table runner, meant to be appliqued & embroidered, but I know I won't ever do them.
