I found 4 of these candlewicked muslin blocks folded up in a box in my closet. I made them in the early 1980s and originally planned to make them into pillows for our bedroom. Are these now old enough to be considered vintage?
I was really into this candlewicking for awhile. Since it's all French knots, it goes pretty fast and there were lots of beautiful patterns available at the time. But like so many things these poor blocks became a lost project and were never finished.
The muslin squares are about 18" although the stitching is only about 9" in the centers, so they could be easily any size in between that. I'm kind of thinking that I could make 5 pieced blocks using the same dusty blue (maybe a 30s print) and create a 9-patch wall hanging with these.
I would really love some suggestions about pieced block ideas to go with these. Any ideas??
