Flower Ring from the Kansas City Star

 

Quilt probably made from a Kansas City Star pattern
in the 1940s or '50s.

Mrs. S.L. Heacock of Hartford, Kansas (near Emporia)
mailed the design to the Star where it was published as 
Flower Ring on May 29, 1940.

It's an unusual version of the Pickle Dish, just like a Double Wedding Ring but with spiky
points rather than the usual wedding ring arcs. BlockBase #459.2

Double Wedding Rings have truncated points.

Ms. Heacock may have had an old quilt in the Flower Ring design.

Here's a similar pattern from the book Texas Quilts: Texas Treasures called Pine Burr or Pickle Dish, attributed to Elizabeth Ruff Mitchell in Texas or Georgia. Quilt shows the fading and color schemes typical of the 1880-1920 era.

I'd guess a fabric designer working for a feedsack company might have seen the Kansas City Star design as there is a similar pattern in a feedsack designed to be re-used as a pillow case with a border included.

As the pattern is in BlockBase+ you can print it out any size.
An 11" version fits on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper.

A Challenge!
