Rosalia Flower Garden Quilt

Well, we have a name for the block from yesterday’s quilt that I showed.  It is Rosalia’s Flower Garden.

It was originally a Kansas City Star pattern, originally published December 3, 1939. Block pattern found in Jinny Beyer’s book “The Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns”. Page 416 block #2

The block can also be found in Barbara Brackman’s book “Encyclopedia of Pieced Pattern”. Page 70 block #430. In this book it’s listed as being called Jack’s Chain also!

Here’s a link to an antique quilt of the same pattern:


And here is a photo of the another quilt of this pattern found at the above link:

Thanks go out to my Aunt Julie who called me yesterday with the pattern name!  Makes life a little easier now doesn’t it!
