Aida is a new member of my guild who has an interesting quilt design challenge. She has a set of old hand pieced quilt blocks from the 1930s made by a member of her family. She plans to make three quilts for her children from these blocks. The blocks are a four patch in a square with the setting triangles using a white with black star fabric. The blocks are only 6 inches. Each four patch uses different scrap fabric. She wants to make three quilts so only has 13 blocks per quilt to use. What should she do with these blocks? Here are two ideas that I created using MyWebQuilter .com . The first idea is to use a rail fence quilt block for sashing with a snowball quilt block as a cornerstone. With several boarders this makes a nice lap size quilt. My second idea was to make each of the old hand pieced blocks the center of an attic window quilt block. This also makes a nice size lap quilt. I have put both of these quilt designs in the Quilt Gallery at MyWebQuilter
