They aren’t exactly alike. My mom pieced the first one (on the left in the picture) starting with a dark round and ended with a light round. She decided that there was too much beige so when she made the second set of blocks she started with the light round and ended with a dark. They’re also quilted with two different pantographs.
Now I’m off to post on Stashbusters that I’ve completed my first UFO for 2006 with the second one to be done within the week.
