Description: In this quilt (and in #003), 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. Why she made two quilts in the same pattern is not known. She expanded on the same practice in the following years--sometimes making three or more versions.
