    I was moving some stuff today and found these, I acquired them in a box of sewing stuff at an auction several years ago and don't know a thing about them. Thought I would let you all see them.

    I would get rid of the ones that look like Nazi symbols. Never know who you could anger. Have you seen any quilts made with that design before?

    Marknfran, I never thought about them looking like Nazi symbols and no I have never even seen one of these blocks much less a quilt with them.

    I had not either, but my husband was passing by my computer while I was looking and he took offense to the fact that someone would make one. I told him it was just a design.

    Bet they are some quilters sample collection. I have some of my aunt's from ages ago. Mostly I just take them out and look at them from time to time
