    this is the back, you can see the stitches, and there is still tails of threads to add more if you wanted...but I do not...I do love that I can see the workmanship from both sides!

    as I can only do 5 pix at a time, I will keep adding the blocks as I can
    this is blury, but it shows the souvenir ribbon that says : Souvenir 23rd anniversary of the A.O.U.W. Oct 27 Kingman, KS 1891! The AOUW is the Ancient order of united workmen. Google it, it is very interesting!

    this block has two ribbons on it. The top one is Taffeta and says Simpson & Lewelling Redeem, KS. The bottom one is silk and says Chester I. Long. This could be a Mourning ribbon.

    my DH says he thinks it is a horseshoe with a riders crop!
    We also just found another ribbon on it that says "stand up for kansas" will be googling/researching that next! OH and on the back, we discovered one of the muslins must have been a slip or something as it has most intricate lace edging, still attached to it!

    here is another block, this one has some nice flowers and wheat...there is lots of wheat, some are nicer than others, which makes you think that more than one person worked on this!

    Jacquie,

    One that square with the horseshoe - look to the right and you will see what looks like 3 links of a chain. Another photo has the same 3 links of a chain.

    Three links of a chain are the symbol of the "Independent Order of Odd Fellows": http://www.ioof.org/
