I take the orphaned raw blocks, create a plan, and finish with contemporary fabrics chosen to be historically appropriate and visually compatible.

made from vintage quilt blocks, "What was she thinking?..." is a series of salvaged antique and vintage quilt blocks from estate sales and closets of the past - composed into finished pieces. Hand quilted and with a hanging sleeve; one of a kind; 30" wide, 35" long
Fabulous dozen star blocks created ealy 1900s using all diamond shapes - some show tiny pieces put together to create the single diamond - very early prints; "white" background actually tiny red & white prints. I used a neutral sashing to show them off and contemporay prints for the coordinating border. 100% cotton with hanging sleeve; all hand-quilted. 37"x46"
The second quilt in this series, these dozen vibrant blocks create a whole world of color from the 30s, 40s, & 50s - lively patterns and colors in unexpected combinations - just as bright as the day they were printed. Crisp cottons bordered with contemporary complementary fabris. 100% cotton, all hand-quilted. 47"x58"; sleeve for hanging.
Indigo fabrics date from late 1800s or early 1900s. This quilt combines eight antique 4-patch blocks with appropriate reproduction prints to enhance and accentuate their beauty. I have included antique mother-of-pearl buttons as accent pieces, and a sleeve for hanging. Approx 29" square, all handquilted.
Thirty vintage feedack pinwheels create the focus for this 36"x40" wall hanging, the border is made from a delightful assortment of feedsack prints. Hanging sleeve attached.
Great vintage prints from the 30s, 40s, maybe 50s were used to create the pinwheel blocks for this charming wall quilt. 42" square, hanging sleeve attached
