Quilt Blocks in the Barn

I found such a treasure when I was visiting my grandmother in Little Rock last weekend.  In a barn, I found lots of scraps, old tv guides (to use as foundations for foundation piecing strips) and some completed blocks!  Old ones!

Here's a picture of my grandmother checking out the basket full of scraps, remarking every time she noticed a scrap from one of her mother's old dresses...

And here are the blocks that are completed...

They belonged to my great grandmother, Grandma Nell.  

I plan to use her scraps to make this a little bigger.  I'll likely do it by hand, just like she did.  I don't think I'll have it finished soon, but I will have fun finishing her WIP.

I wonder who will finish all of MY WIPs...?
