The pattern is called "Sallie's Quilt" and is from Red Crinoline Quilts, formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts. They specialize in civil war reproductions. "Sallie, a Brittany Spaniel, was the beloved mascot for the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment. " is the description of the pattern from their web site.
I got my quilting inspiration from another blog (Sew'n Wild Oaks) and am very happy with how it turned out. I even emailed Lynn and she was kind enough to email back with the information I was looking for. She free-motioned hers, I must admit the Statler did mine :0)
|"cathedral window" inside the inner squares|
|This is the outer block|
|Pumpkin seeds in small irish chain blocks|
|Each block and star are outlined with stippling in the light areas|
|I used a blue thread to quilt the same flower from the border into the 3 inch areas on the blue blocks|
|Flower in the center of each border|
|I also went back and outlined the black border on each side.|
Thanks Mary for letting me work on your beauty! and thanks to Lynn for the inspiration for it.
