Last year Jill posted a mystery pattern.
Looks, like most Turkey red and white quilts, to
date from about 1880-1925.
This seems to be the block with a red square in the center.
Even figuring out the repeat wasn't easy.
But when I was going through Mildred Dickerson's pattern scrapbooks in the Quilt Research Center at the University of Nebraska Libraries I came across this clipping.
Oh, now I see the heart.
From Prairie Farmer magazine.
I'd have thought the quilt was older than that.
It's a nine patch, I guess.
Here it is in BlockBase as #2910, Broken Heart. Didn't see it as a nine patch though. The
seams weren't too clear in the photo.
