    Twenty 12.5" (completed size 12") quilt blocks, 100% cotton fabric. Each block has a different floral fabric in the corners. They can be arranged in any manner, with or without sashing--the arrangement on the floor is just for illustrative purposes. The pattern was called Thrifty, but I think this is what some call the Irish Chain pattern. So most of a quilt top is finished for you. All you have to either put sashing and borders or just assemble sash-less, then borders. A great start on a quilt top for you.

    **there was an area rug under that assembly of blocks so some may look stretched, but they were only falling over the edge of the rug underneath, hence, not laying flat. They were all checked for size and squared up pretty well.

    Thanks! I can't wait to see what someone does with them. I forgot to say that the centers of each block are in one of four different colors: pale yellow, yellowish-green, aqua, or rosy pink.

    The reserve price is $2 apiece, totaling $40, which I think is fair for labor and fabric.

    Well, these are worth more than $40.

    I think so, Terrie. Fabric, plus labor of cutting and sewing and squaring up, well, I have to agree, but as they say in real estate, fair market value is what a buyer is willing to pay and what a seller is willing to sell for meeting up in the middle. I know times are tough all over, though.
