How I recycled quilt blocks neary a decade ago

Most of the quilt blocks that I re-purposed in the pictures of this post were made in 2001 or 2002. The English paper pieced blocks (hexagon star and hexie flower) I made back in 1998 the year I learned how to EPP.

About 8 or 9 years ago I decided to get creative with these old blocks and quilt fabrics. This is just a sampling of projects I came up with. As you can see tiny dolls and totes were a re-occurring theme. lol

Soon afterwards I became obsessed with creating miniature quilts and small scale quilt blocks.
My projects, like my sewing and quilting skills have continued to evolved over the years.
I look forward to looking back in another decade at how I've re-purposed my current blocks and fabrics.

every quilt tells a story....
