Herring Bone Felt Topper





These Blocks are from the 40's, I've accumulated a lot of 40's blocks some are pretty nutty to say the least.. I hope to block on all of my crazy blocks and have pictures up sooner or later.
I found these blocks at Jeffery's HUGE Antique Mall in Findley Ohio around 15 years ago. We lived in Ann Arbor MI at the time 1993-1998 and I spent a lot of my time taking Fiberart classes, mostly felt making classes and dyeing classes, antiquing and scouring thiftshops. I used these blocks for a fashion show in Portland Oregon 2003 except in straw I'll post those pictures later.

That herringbone felt looks great... where did it come from?
And the topper, well... I love it!
And I WILL BE WATCHING YOU... so keep on blocking because I want to see at least a hat out of every single one of those blocks.
