Gypsy Trail or Snake in the Hollow

A strange pattern but it's just a double fan.

Two fans in each block



The small red curved piece is what catches your eye.

It's in BlockBase as #3353, but the published names Gypsy Trail and Snake in the Hollow come from 1970s publications. It must have been published earlier in the 1940-1970 years. These three quilts look to be from that date.



From the Quilt Index
This one's in the collection of the Museum at Michigan State University. I
think it was once in Merry Silber's collection. The dealer said it was found
in an Indiana attic.

I made a QuickQuilt in BlockBase of #3353.
And that's the only one I am going to make---
A lotta curved seams.
