    Barbara Bracken's books and you may get an idea. IMHO I would guess somewhere around 1930's to 1950's. These fabrics look to be from that era. Are they hand-stitched or machine-stitched or combination?
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    All are hand stitched.

    I recognize some of the fabric in the Dresden blades, my Great Grandmother used some like it in a 1937 quilt she made.

    Looks like 30's fabrics to me. Cute elephant block too!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    So funny that you look at quilts others have that their grandma made and you find some of the same fabric in quilts your grandmother made. Nice quilts. Love the little elephants.
