I am currently working on some small motifs for the moif swap so will wait until I finish all before showing them. A few Christmases ago I told my husband he had just bought me something for Christmas. I had bid on some old crazy quilt squares on ebay. Of course he was happy not to have to worry about what to buy me. I think it was only Nov. so I had the gal ship them to my daughter's house so I wouldn't be tempted. Well when I opened them Christmas day I was so excited and my hubby said "thats what you wanted"? Another CQer would appreciate what the age and workmanship means to us. I did take pictures of the squares and have had the best intentions every summer when we go home to get them out and do something with them. I am promising (threatening) myself that this will be the summer. The interesting thing about these blocks were the number and dates of all the ribbons. I think the squares were made by someone in North or South Dakota because a lot of the ribbons were from there and most are dated in the 1880 and 1890s. The Daughters of Rebecca and the International Order of Oddfellows are represented mainly. I took the pictures quite awhile ago and they were on my desktop. I cannot remember which pics go with which square but you may enjoy looking at them. There were a number of silk painted flowers that are lovely. Hope I have a few of those on here.
