Slow Unstitching Sunday

I’ve had these blocks for some time. I take them out every now and again, trying to figure out what to do with them. You can see how much they vary in size.

I finally have a plan. But it requires lots of unsewing.

As each block gets unstitched, de-threaded, and pressed, the pieces get clipped together. I want to keep the pieces from each original block together.

I have everything I need in this vintage enamel pan, so I can visit with family or watch TV while I work on this.

Have a great day!
