Rags & Tatters

 

In 1933 the Detroit News offered a patchwork pattern
called Rags & Tatters... 

which was not in the old Encyclopedia or BlockBase
so I added it to the new editions (#2005.5). I found the pattern at the Quilt Index
which has a picture of a sheet with a setting and shading suggestion.


I exported the BlockBase+ file to EQ8 where I could match original shading suggestion by turning every other block and shading in counterchange fashion. What's light in one block is dark in the next.


A lot going on visually.

I don't know much about the Detroit News as I haven't had access to many clippings over the years. They competed with a bigger needlework operation in the Detroit Free Press.

Rags & Tatters is an interesting combination of a Jacob's Ladder sort of 4-patch
with a frame. Here's a BlockBase+ Quilt Layout that shows how
it looks set side by side.
And on point.

  1. I'm super excited to tell the public that I have been permanently cured from herpes by Dr Agbomina . I had herpes for years but everyone told me that there was no cure to it and every doctor I contacted failed to cure me until I contacted Dr Agbomina , he placed me on diet and also sent his medicine to me and today I'm free and my lab test confirmed it. You can contact Dr Agbomina via his WhatsApp +234(805)049-5479 or email: dragbonherbalmedicine@gmail.com You can visit his Website at https://dragbonherbalmedic.wixsite.com/welcometodoctoragbon
