Did you see this wonderful pattern in an eBay quilt last month.
A 1930-1950 string quilt in a pattern I've never seen before.
It's a square block alternating one that's flipped over.
The arcs intersect perfectly---not easy to do.
And then the edge pieces are string pieced.
I've never seen it with or without the string piecing.
Found this one in the Quilt Index brought in by the maker who made it in 1939.
Winnie Cook Fox (1918-2005) of Alexander County, North Carolina
Winnie called it Snake Trail and said she got the pattern
from her mother Susan Lackey Cook.
Like many Southern quilts the pattern is
first-rate, the fabrics third-rate. Winnie said
she used sacking fabrics, tobacco, sugar & flour.
The gray was once green.
I'd guess it was a published pattern but who?
We'll call it Zephyr, a gentle breeze.
I tried drawing it in EQ8 and it looks pretty good until you
put the blocks side by side and flip every other one.
My drawing doesn't integrate the curves as well
as the quilt does.
Print this out 8-1/2" x 11".
