Vintage Bowtie Blocks
These quilt blocks were found in a trunk at an antiques shop. They were among a set of Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks as well as 2 sets of 9-patch blocks. The price wasn't as good as the T-blocks made from feedsack cloth, but still reasonable. I love the colors and prints and the fact that they were all hand stitched. It took me an hour to decide which set of blocks to buy - I wanted them all!
I'm not the authority on vintage fabrics so it's hard for me to judge what era these fabrics are, but I'm guessing 1930's and 40's.
These bolder colors remind me of 1940's fabrics that are in a set of quilt blocks I inherited from my grandmother, although these prints are smaller.
