Antique Block Challenge 2021? Are You In?

 If you've been around for very long you know I did a challenge using an antique quilt block. Started in 2019 with 1 year to complete it. 

You could use it whole, take out pieces, cut it, slice it, whatever! I was wondering if anyone would be interested in another challenge like that? 

Here is my little quilt from last year.
You can see others HERE. There was so much creativity!

While I've been on the hunt for some missing string blocks I came across these antique blocks in my sewing room. I would offer you a block for the challenge if you didn't have one of your own. I think $5 would be reasonable to cover the cost and to ship it. 
What do you think?
I ran it by my friend and she thought it was a good idea, now I'm running it by you all. 

If you would like a block I'll let you choose 30's or 1890's-1910 or older. You choose the era, I'll chose the block.!
I'll accept paypal, venmo, cash or check. 
email me! ldej@crestviewcable.com and we'll work it out!

Have an amazing weekend!

  6. I think it is a great idea. I have plenty of my own to choose from but I think $5.00 for an antique block is very fair. Looking forward to it.

  9. I think this sounds like fun. I have some of my MIL's blocks that may not be antique but they look like they are from the 60's. I think I'll use one of them.

  14. A number of years ago I bought a quilt at a yard sale that I loved so much I made a whole bunch of blocks to make a bed sized one for us. I have yet to set them with their alternate blocks, and have more than I need for my king sized bed quilt. If it is oK to use one of the odd ball ones from that collection of too many, then I'm in!
