This is about as traditional as you can get. It is a traditional pattern done as a bed size quilt.
You see it here as part of the stack of quilts on the bed in my studio.
It is made from what I call "cutsey calicos". You may notice the blue print is different in the 4 center blocks. I cut out the quilt, started to assemble the blocks and then put it aside while I did other projects.
When I took it out again I was short blue fabric. Without realizing it I had used it in a different project. So being upset with myself for doing something so stupid I came up with the idea of using a second blue print. It did make the quilt a little more interesting. This is one of a few quilts I have had quilted by a long arm quilter.
