In one of the drawers was a little plastic bag of paper pieced squares. I knew they were made at least 15 years ago. In the early to mid 1990's everyone was collecting show pins, guild pins, anything quilt related pins. There was a pattern for a vest that you could make with squares to put all of the pins on and wear them to a quilt show or guild meeting. I'm not sure if this block was meant for a vest or a wall hanging, but I never finished making the blocks. Fortunately I had just enough to cover my 8.5" x 11" Journal Quilt.
I still have a little pile of the papers to piece on, but they will probably get turned over and be used for scratch paper now.
