The 4th Day of Christmas

It's not as easy to come up with a topic everyday as I thought, and we're only on day 4! I looked through my files, and came up with these blocks from a presentation quilt made in 1869 for a little eye candy.


Enjoy~

Every day must be daunting - I don't seem to be able to post even once a week! Love the blocks, especially the third one. I think it's the pink.
