Antique Quilt Block Tote
These antique blocks come from my collection of old American quilts. Each block is over a hundred years old and they need some tending loving care. Some blocks may need a small repair or patch. Sew this block onto the linen tote bag for keeping all your favorite sewing projects.
Linen Tote measures 17" x 18" with a 2" strap
