Little Quilt Top Scraps

While looking through great-aunt Clara's scrapbag, I came across these two little remnants. I doubt they were intended as doll quilts. Great-aunt Clara and her husband didn't have any children and she had only one nephew (my father-in-law). I think these may have been intended to be larger quilts, but were never finished.

This one is 20" square. The blocks are 1 1/2" inches.

This one is 20"x24". The nine patches are 3" square.
