    My mother in law found this block in a discarded box at an auction in WV she saved it and gave it to me I decided to turn it into a little wall hanging. I hand quilted around the flowers and the corners and used a green border. It hangs in my kitchen and I adore it..

    Very pretty, I love the way so many folk here save and restore older pieces, to preserve for future generations to enjoy, well done!
