More faux patchwork, printed patchwork, aka cheater cloth. This one is a calendar print dated 1881 and featuring a calendar for each month of 1881. I love how each one also details the stages of the Moon. And of course, the simulated patchwork print background is a delight as well.
And even more fun ... finding the print in a quilt! Yes, it is in the same tumbling block star I shared yesterday with the cat/dog print.
And here's a sweet little bird. Also in the photo you can see how closely the maker matched the fabrics in the 3 sets of star points, specifically the points across from each other (the 2 small greens, the 2 yellows, and the 2 dark prints w/red).
And another one, maybe a swan? And again notice how closely matched the prints are (two small scale greens, 2 brown prints, and 2 reds).
Carnival Time - A mid to late 20th century block. It's a wheel design with an octagon in the center. Not too hard to find in *BlockBase* where it's #3600 Friendship Circle...
