My Great-Grandmother's Blocks

My Grandmother showed me these blocks many years ago and told me that her mother made them. Her mother was Martha Elizabeth Yarborough Gossvener, born in 1875 in Hindsville, Arkansas. There are 80 blocks.

The blocks have been stored in my grandmother's hope chest all these years and I got them when my father passed away. To my surprise when I opened the bag they were in there was also the paper patterns for the blocks. It is cut out of newspaper and I have found a date in 1935 in the articles. I believe the publication is Home and Farm.
