A fun surprise and and the mystery block….

Isn’t this awesome?


Daughter #3 surprised me with this early Christmas gift! She took a photo of one of my quilts and had it put on the cover of this notebook. She knows how I love notebooks! Beautiful empty pages, just waiting to be filled….

Here is the quilt:


In case you are interested, she ordered this via Shutterfly.

Knitnkwilt left me a comment yesterday regarding the block pattern in my vintage quilt top. She found the block ( or one very close to it) in this book:



Here is the block in the quilt.

Looks like a pretty close match to me! Thanks, Clare! I wonder if the maker of this top made a mistake in those corners and decided to change he pattern instead of rip. Sounds like something I would do!

  1. How fun is that notebook cover?! Super cool and mistakes just lead to alternative realities which can be a good thing.

    Until you mentioned the “mistake”, I thought it was exactly the same block. It’s hard to say if it was intentional or planned but I love it!

    I’ll admit, a mistake was my first thought too. I thought some more. It would have to have been made early on or there would have been ripping of the “right” ones or blocks both ways. The only early mistake I could think of was to have sewn all the triangles in strips before assembling the blocks and seeing that some didn’t go the same way.(That is a mistake I’d make when chain piecing–was chain piecing in when this top was made?) OTOH I can also see being bored with doing the same as everyone else and asking, How can I change this? Lots of quilt blocks with different names have no more difference than that.
