Setting Sun

 

A while ago Leota sent me a photo of a 1930s-40s top she had

A complex pieced Dresden Plate
It wasn't in my Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

We found it as Setting Sun, a Laura Wheeler
newspaper pattern---those pieces in the corners are 
"tiny clouds."

So when we revised the Encyclopedia I sent the programmers
a sketch


And here it is as #1488.3 in both the book version
and BlockBase+ the digital version.



The Wyoming project and the Quilt Index showed two quilts made from the pattern. This owner who bought the quilt attended one of Merikay Waldvogel's Laura Wheeler workshops and knew the pattern name and source.

Because it's in BlockBase+ you can print out a pattern----templates drawn for you. I'm giving you a drawing of 1/4th and you can use this as templates for a 15" pattern. This might be the perfect pattern for your 3-D printer. Plastic Templates.
