great vintage blocks from Susan Beal

Susan Beal was at last week's Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting, and she had a stack of blocks for me. Totally awesome! They are all inscribed with names, which appear to be signatures rather than one hand, and that's exciting! Fabric looks like it could be 30s or 40s, but it could also be a bit later. Love the colors, and some of the names are wonderful. My favorite is Hortense Wiggs. Love!

Thank you, Susan, for the very cool gift. I can see sewing the blocks together one day, but I've got to work on my sewing skills first. If the blocks are lined up well, there will be a curious play of negative space and secondary pattern. Mint condition, too. Good eye, my friend!
