They were in a cardboard box that at one time held chocolates, now the box holds this as well:
Marsha did some detective work. On the back of the newspaper clippings were ads for movies. She determined that these pieces are from the 1930's. Very fun to look through. What a treasure.
Tomorrow is quilting at the Moose, we're doing quilted jackets. We will be having tons of fun. And sewing some too!

The blue is alot "richer" looking than in these pics. I just love it. I had to add a row of blocks to made it wider, and I also made 2 extra blocks for 18" throw pillows. Finished size, 107" by 107". I also have enough material to make matching pillowcases. The olive green color will also be used to cover the top of my hope chest. Now I just have to get the backing material and get the quilt to Chris at the Moose so she can quilt it for me! We've already decided on a blue thread that matches the blue in the quilt, but haven't decided on a design yet.
The special visitor of the morning was a cute little hummingbird, darting in and out among the apple blossoms.
Yes, it was a busy morning in the neighborhood!
