Somewhere between 30 and 50 yrs. ago my Aunt Fran embroidered these squares. After she died my Uncle gave the squares to me and I just finished the quilt top using the squares. Why she chose green for the animals I will never know, but I managed to find a fabric that I liked with the embroidery. It is going to stay in the family and will eventually go to my granddaughter if and when she has a family. She is now in college.
The red floral fabric was given to me and I made this 10 minute block out of it. It is going to a charity silent auction in Oct. It was fun to make and the fabric is really not one I would normally choose, but I like it and I added the purple simply because I have always like purple and red together.
