Here's a pretty pattern with an art deco flair,
subject of discussion in July over at the Quilts: Vintage & Antique
Field of Daisies is a Laura Wheeler
syndicated newspaper pattern that was first published
in 1935, published far and wide.
Opal Dodd Gott (1910-1992), about 1970
Preston, Missouri, a gift for her nephew who showed it to the Oregon Project.
Julie Silber had one to tempt us with---
Quite a tour-de-force of fussy-cut hexagons.
Virginia Berger recognized the border pattern right away
as she owns this version.
Hers is set in quartets on point, a very effective design.
This quilter knew what it was called.
The photo is from Mark French's ebay store. Julie bought
it from Mark and sold it to someone who like me
wants to know the name of the pattern.
I don't know why this hasn't caught on.
Banner headlines on quilts.
The San Jose Museum of Quilts has a similar quilt.
We'd guess most of these with the 1930s Nile green
are from the late 1930s.
It is in my Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns as #796
among the modernistic flowers. Here's the old version---I didn't quite get it right, missing
a seam & proportions are a bit off.
It didn't translate to BlockBase as well as you'd hope either.
I imported #796 from BlockBase to EQ8
and redrew a few lines...
Pretty close in a better pattern for an 8" block.
Proportions more accurate and shows the missing seam I
couldn't see in the original newspaper pattern.
