I found a UFO at a garage sale a few years ago,it must have been from a guild,it was a signature quilt blocks.They were all dated and signed. The year was 1944,name and year embrodered. Since that was the year I was born I just had to have it. I set it together with 1930's reproduction material,couldn't find 40's. But never quilted it,glad I didn't because now,I don't like the way it turned out so am planing on taking it apart and redoing it.
