A Baby Blocks Quilt - Scrap Basket Sunday Link-up

I don't have anything to show because I haven't made anything this week. I started on a top that should be showcasing next week but that doesn't really apply for this party, does it? So, as for scraps, I have decided to use some scraps from my historical sewing adventures for a quilt. Here's a bit of the fabric that I pulled out so far:


I have been very smitten with this quilt pattern for some time and found this image in a book published 1852. The instructions for this pouch call for silk but I was happy to see it anyway.


So, without boring you terribly as to the historic research and details, I want to make a crib sized Baby Blocks quilt from historic cottons. ??I think the design is also called Pandora's Box?? Anyway, this project may or may not be a feat since I don't quilt and I'm not really sure how those pieces go together. I'm relying heavily on the internet community's collective sharing, e.g. youtube and tutorials. If you've made one of these, any tips or pointers would be lovely.

And without further delay, here's the link-up:
