15th Anniversary Quilt


I designed this quilt block as a gift to my students for the 15th anniversary of my shop many years ago.
It was included in my newsletter and I asked people to figure out the significance of the design.

Can you figure it out?

This block is a very traditional type of design. I had heard there is no such thing as an original symetrical block of this type. I researched all my quilt books and publications and did not find anything like this block so I can say with confidence it is an original block with a very traditional look.

I choose colors that were not common at the time I designed it, but the fabrics and block do make the quilt look quite traditional.

Enjoy working this puzzle.

Turned upside down it looks like many small figures, one per block.

I was going to say 15 pieces too!
I find it sad that people say that there are no original symetrical pieced block patterns. So many believe it is a fact and never look for different ways to draw lines within a square, which means there are thousands of new blocks waiting to be found, and vwery few people are looking for them..
