    My mom had these in her attic with my name on them. These all all vintage fabrics not sure how old. And already sewed together!! I am so excited!! I just need to find something that matches for the centers.

    Wow I just counted them and there are 120!! Someone sure was busy! We believe they came from an elderly neighbor of my moms. When she passed away my mom got a lot of her sewing things.

    strawberry you're exactly right, those are a real treasure, all that time and effort, amazing work. I bet you'll have a great time pick fabrics to go with creating a wonderful "melting pot" of work. :D Not to mention having your name on them!
