A book that I have come across, is that of Susan Briscoe, “the 1718 Coverlet” published in 2014 by D&C, www.stitchcraftcreate.co.uk ISBN-13: 978-I-4463-0444-2
This quilt shows that in 1718, coverlets were made from different sized blocks and combined without sashes and borders. This traditional mosaic piecing technique is making a great comeback in the Slow Stiching circles. The book describes the 69 block patterns that make up this quilt.
You might use some of your orphaned blocks and sew up a new version of this coverlet.
This brings us to Erla explaining the 369 principle.
