    I have found a quilt that was started by my Mom and older sister in the 1930's. I have the butterflies that they blanket stitched to muslin and I have extra butterflies that would have been cut out of my mom's old dresses, aprons or my dad's shirts. I am wanting to finish this quilt. I do not have a clue how to do it but I will learn. It looks like fun and I do sew so it can't be too hard to learn how to make this quilt work. I am originally from the New England area, Massachusetts to be exact and have been transplanted to Ohio. There are many quilters out here so I am looking forward to finding some help from a quilters group in my area. :-D

    I have some questions. To put my blocks together I need to cut pcs. about 3" wide as long as one side of the block. Sew together with 1/4" seam and press seams open, Correct? (Oops I forgot I lay the blocks out the way I want them to look and then do the sewing) oNce I have this done I measure how long a strip I need to join each strip of blocks correct? Then do I use the same material for the backing or do I use a colored sheet? Thanks for any pointers..

    I'm from Ohio, too. I'm new to quilting and have learned so much from the quilters on this site. Welcome to the board.

    A sunny hello from NC (although it's raining today). Would love to see pictures of the fabric since it's so old. Depending on how fragile the material is, or the colors used in it, you may want to hand wash the fabric rather than machine wash. If there are no spots, I may not wash it at all. Good luck and post pics after it is completed too please.
