The first block is a 9 inch Nine Patch made of 5 dark squares and 4 light squares. The squares are cut 3 1/2 inches.
The top block is the reproduction one. The background fabric with the squiggle shape is very close to the print in the original block. The red print in the original is more exciting but I couldn't find a similar fabric. The modern version of the block uses a similar color scheme. The birds shouldn't be upside down but the save on the rotate doesn't take.
The second block is a 10 inch uneven Nine Patch. The center is 5 inches square (cut 5 1/2) and the corners are 2 1/2 inches square (cut 3).
The original block was made of fabric that resembles nothing on the market today and the fabric used was somewhat similar, color wise, to the original. The light was a light blue and the dark a little lighter gray. Both fabrics have large polka dots. For the modern block I used a similar color scheme again. I'm trying to have fun with the modern blocks.
It's interesting. I'll have the fabric for the blocks laid out next to the sewing machine and I'm tempted to to mix the 2 styles of fabric together in a single block. I would not expect the fabrics to "go" together but in some cases they do. However, making 3 of each block for a 3rd quilt is a little too much for me. Maybe I'll make a quilt with the leftover fabric to mix the 2 styles together.
