Barbara Tennyson brought a box of blocks she had put together about two years ago when she lived in Iowa. The blocks are made of wool clothing she wore in school (Barb's a grandmother now)and old neckties. The solid fabric is an off white, or beige colored wool. Since our SC weather doesn't really call for wool blankets Barb is thinking of making a throw for her den. I only took a photo of one block but there was so many fabulous color combinations. I'll look forward to seeing this one done.
