vintage fabric squares

squares cut from grain sacks, circa 1930s & 40s (I believe)

I have a fabulous collection (these scans are 8 out of probably eighty) thanks to my mum.  Some of them I’ve started stitching together for pillows, but it’s slow going by hand. There’s also a part of me that wants to leave them as is.  They’re awfully pretty.
