More seams with Laura

Several days ago I described working on a treasure trove of partially finished blocks dating from perhaps the fifties.

The seams were 1/8 inch wide, perfectly and meticulously sewn by hand with a construction manner I would not have chosen.

Here is the interim stage of these blocks

The pattern does not show the blocks turned but as I had one completed block to study and several others nearly completed, I chose to ignore the designer’s plan and continue on.

It is now a completed top—and waiting in line for qulting—how shall I quilt it? The original seamstress must have had some sort of plan in mind–I think she stopped because she ran out of certain fabrics Inspecting some of the squares of gray and even some of the prints, there were carefully pieced bits–some barely 1/4 inch triangle or a tiny strip to comlete the square True frugality—but also with an eye to design and color placement.
