Arkansas Centennial

 


Joyce's block certainly jumps off the cover of
the new edition of the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
We asked stitchers to choose a block and send it in. Hers
is #2765 published in the Kansas City Star in  1937
as Arkansas Centennial.

#2765 is an unusual block, all curved seams, a variation of Kaleidoscopes with straight sides


but more challenging.

Arkansas Centennial has a few cousins with eight curved seams meeting in the center.,


See posts on pattern relations here:

But not many people other than Joyce seem to have attempted this design.

A quick quilt from BlockBase shows a secondary
pattern in the corners.

12" pattern from BlockBase

Arkansas Centennial certainly looks good on the cover.
Thanks, Joyce.
