That is a lovely quilt that was rescued.  I bet it was kind of like a treasure hunt while you took it apart.  Makes you wonder about the person who worked so hard to put it together.  I rescued a beautiful hand pieced, full sized quilt top from the discard pile at an estate auction  (I could not believe that it didn't sell!) and  almost felt it an honor to finish it for the lady who worked so hard on it.  As for the interesting insides of your quilt, it makes me think of the depression era quilters who made do with what they had and wasted nothing.  Hope you show us a photo when you have it all redone.

The blocks look very pretty.  Be sure to show us the finished quilt.

Be sure to post pictures of your save!

It really did make me wonder about the maker.  Somewhere in the recesses of my brain I remember hearing about people using nylons for quilt batting, but not the puff ball block type.  I tried looking on the internet a bit but only found information on the puff ball ( that's what I'm calling it).

Sometimes when I handle thing they talk to me, but even with all of the hands on deconstructing the quilt did not even give up a single whisper.

I will post a picture but it will be awhile.  Working on this quilt is very messy, lots of fabric bunnies and depending on the fabric in the block lots of strings. Must keep a lint roller handy at all times.

The latest Hawaiian Applique block that I've finished.

I also took some time to prep all the other blocks so now they are all ready to be stitched.

Beautiful, and eye catching, as always!

Those look like coneflower (echinacea) blossoms.

Since the blocks are gorgeously beautiful, I'm not sure there will words to describe the quilt when you finish it.

They absolutely do and were a complete bugger to stitch.  :-)
