Quilt Blocks

Managed a bit of sewing today Made a new chair pad for the dining room chair because the other one was worn out
My cousin came to visit last Christmas and her 11 year old asked me if I'd make her a quilt using her late Grandmothers material
The material was posted to me and not a peice of cotton material in sight So today I made a start and did these two blocks Some applique will go on the centre square
It's a little difficult because all the material is different weights
Hopefully I can make something reasonable from what I have been given to work with

Hi Illene, I too love the colour combination for your chaid pad....it is not easy to work with different weight fabrics...maybe you could group them in their weights and work from there...thank you for your thoughts... Warm Regards Lyn
