Description: In this quilt (and in #52), she experimented with the pieced blocks and borders. She chose different arrangements, thus the dimensions are slightly different. Quilting designs (in the plain blocks) are the same in both quilts.
Other Notes: This is a common (traditional) pieced pattern she might have seen in a quilt history book (Ruth Finley's) or she may have purchased a pattern (McCall's).
