This quilt was started by someone else. The pieced portion came to me in the sewing/craft boxes of my late neighbor Laura Wheeler of Brainard NY. I don't know if she pieced these or not, but it's possible that she did.

I wanted to stabilize these blocks but couldn't imagine what to do with all those zigzaggy edges. I purchased (at a store where no one would recognize me -just kidding!) some thirties repro prints to audition as borders. I finally machine appliqued the edges of the quilt top to the straight pieces of border and trimmed away what wasn't needed.
