OK, these aren't my most recent projects, but they are my pride and joy. ;-}
This pattern was shown in Quilter's Newsletter June 1974 as a reader submitted clipping from an 1865 paper.
I fell in love with the design but quickly realized that 1974 methods (scissor cutting, paper templates, hand sewing) made it unrealistic to complete. The layout is 72 squares x 72 squares -- you do the math! Now add in the extra pieces for 1/2 and 1/4 square triangles.......
Luckily, 2005 quilting techniques made it very possible. This version was based on a 1-1/2 inch square grid.
Of course, after I finally figured it out, I just had to do it again --- SMALLER. This version is based on a 3/4 inch square grid..... This one was shown at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in 2006.
If anybody wants to try it, I've got the construction documented.
