What materials did you use? I used signature blocks that were given to my grandmother for her wedding in the 1930s, plus reproduction 1930s fabrics. My mom pieced the blocks, I added the sashing and hand quilted it. The binding is vintage 30s fabric.

The muslin blocks are all about 7" and full block is about 9 1/2" (finished). These were all hand cut by various people in the 1930s, so the sizes vary a little from block to block.
