Carol's Scrap Time Quilt #2404

An interesting top from about 1880
The block is not what it first looks to be



It's a square inside a square.
BlockBase #2404,
which was first published (according to me) as Carol's Scrap Time Quilt
in a pattern magazine in 1964.
It must have been published before that.

Here's a variation
that looks last half of the 19th century.
#2404.3

A 2404 block from about 1910

Set at a half drop  (each strip is dropped a half a block),
which gives you a whole different look.




1880s


And here's another from about 1880---maybe a little earlier. 
Half drop repeat.
Less color organization in the corners.

BlockBase will draw you any pattern any size.
I did it for you.
#2404 as a 12" block.
You need 1 square cut 9"
And 36 half-square triangles cut from 18 squares cut 2-7/8"
