#14.86 in my Encyclopedia of Applique.
My source for the pattern was this quilt pictured in the Texas Quilts, Texas Treasures book from 1986.
Oak Leaf & Cherries, 1890-1900 by Mrs. Dillingham,
I was glad to find a second example in the files of the
North Carolina project.
Quilt by Lena Applewhite Thompson
Wilson County, North Carolina.
Last quarter of the 19th century.
Here's a variation, the symmetry based on 8
rotating arms with dots.
From a dotty sampler pictured in Woodard & Greenstein's Crib Quilts
The caption says Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Then I found this spread on the Cumberland County, Pennsylvania book on quilts seen
in the Letort Quilters Documentation Project.
The documenters saw several examples. They call it Flowers & Bubbles.
A regional favorite. Notice the dots are arranged in threes.
Variations from various places:
A simpler version from 1880-1910.
From an online auction.
Note the checkerboard cornerstone is the same
as the earlier North Carolina quilt.
And if you liked making dots, you could make 12
as in this sampler quilt from the collection of the Briscoe
Center for American History, University of Texas at Austin.
Another quilt from the Texas project.
From an online auction years ago.
Fill up those empty corners with more dots and a few stars.
Print this out 8 inches square
and double it for a pattern for an 18-22" block.
