Barbara R sends pictures of a quilt top partially quilted
that she inherited from her mother. She's thinking her
mom might have purchased it.
74” x 86”
She knew it was a Laura Wheeler pattern Lover's Knot
3010 in BlockBase in a page of similar hard-to-piece blocks.
Not often made. This one is from an online auction
Here's a clipping from the Pottstown Mercury in 1933 or 1934.
Easy to Make in the best traditions of the Colonial needlewoman.
Here's an updated version for a red & white version from Lovelli Quilts.
I recolored the BlockBase drawing to make it look more
like the original and I see I thought that there was an
extra seam in the long ribbons extending into the corners.
That would make it easier to piece.
The original pattern was a little hard to figure out from the sketch
and I see my proportions are off too.
I revised it a little. Print this 8-inch pattern out at 150%.
And as with most Laura Wheeler designs....good luck.
