Repairing the four blocks

Out of the thirty blocks in the damaged quilt top, four of them needed reconstruction work. Just like the Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt I blogged about.... I made templates with a double thickness of freezer paper and found reasonable matches for calico fabric in my stash. I wasn't going for exact matches because I love the scrappy look. After I repaired the four blocks, I squared them up, which is a misnomer because these "squares" are actually rectangles measuring 12" x 11".
