At first glance they appear to be just any old string pieced blocks. You can see the old fabrics used as the quilter attempted to save everything she could and make use of all she had.
But turn the block over and you will see why I was so drawn to the blocks. This quilter used newspaper as her foundation for the string piecing. And you can see the date of the newspaper....September 23, 1928
You can also see on the back that she hand pieced the string blocks.
I just love these little glimpses of time gone by.
