    I received a bunch of vintage squares and many were a bit wonky as they were cut by hand, but I didn't want to re-cut them all. I threw them together and made sure to sew them all so that I wouldn't have to worry about matching seams. Nothing fancy, but kind of cute and antiquey looking.

    It is really cute. And how clever of you to design your setting of the squares so nothing had to match up to outfox that old wonky cutting! You did great and I really like this quilt.
