    to me this looks like my stash (but not batiks)
    I haven't met this lady so I can't really say for certain but I think it is probably a little bit of each. But I have no explanation at all for those 62 blocks!! I spent a lot of time last night trying to finish going through everything - STILL not finished! I do think I've found all the blocks, though and there are a ton. I'll try to photograph more of them later, but I have more sorting and pressing to do first.
