An unknown pattern.
Kind of thing that drives me nuts.
It looks familiar.
The block? A Four Patch
But couldn't find it in BlockBase.
I posted it on the Facebook page Quilts Vintage & Antique.
They all admired it. Laura suggested I look at it as a star.
Not in BlockBase in the Four Patches: Stars
Jocelyne posted blocks she'd made from a picture she saw online
(maybe the same picture I had) but most of us agreed it had to be
a published pattern. It was so complex.
I drew it up in EQ8
And made a pattern for a 12" block by dividing it in quarters.
Print this out at 6". Add seams.
And then I remembered where I'd seen it before.
Nancy Page showed it as a quarter of the block. It's odd, filed in the Two-Patch
patterns divided diagonally.
I looked up Allentown Nancy Page in Newspapers.com.
Found it in 1935.
Too bad Nancy didn't show the whole four-patch.
A lot more people would have stitched it.
