I love quilting and have a plenty of material witnesses to prove it!
And here’s a neat link to a blog I just found where this blogger is talking about the same quilt!
Well, as I sat here this morning trying to patiently wait for the Fed Ex truck to get here and bring me a replacement part for my printer – I received a few fun photos on FaceBook! Look at this eye candy! My Aunt has been one busy person lately!
This photo above is from a pattern that appeared in the May/June 2008 issue of Fons & Porters Love Of Quilting Magazine! Isn’t it pretty! This is one that is on my “to-do” list for sure! It’s called “Spin Wheel”.
Oh and what do we have here! This is from one of my patterns that was in the Fall 2008 issue of Quilts & More magazine! It’s called Ease into Autumn! So pretty!
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!
OK, the last show I did was in Valparaiso, Indiana and was put on by the String A Long Quilt Guild. Great show – if you are close to that area, be sure to go to their next show in 2012!
Here is a quilt that I love and think would be so great and quick to piece. The nine patches I could whip up on the sewing machine and use fabrics from my scrap basket. Then I’m thinking the actual assembly of the quilt top would be a great hand piecing project while I’m on the road doing quilt shows!
So, here’s the question of the day – Anyone have any idea what this quilt pattern is called? I’m sure I could draw it out in EQ 6, but I would really love to know the name of the pattern!
