Quilt made from vintage signature blocks

Below are pics of a quilt that I made from someone's vintage quilt blocks. The blocks were made in 1935 for her mother who retired as a school teacher upon her marriage. The blocks were made by families of her students with each block having an embroidered name of one of her students. Each block measures 14" square, and the entire quilt measures 88" x 88".
