My DJ online group saw this quilt in a book (New Discoveries in American Quilts by Robert Bishop) and decided we wanted to make it. Ruthie and Paula are pretty much EQ whizzes and love a challenge. They designed these blocks by looking at the book, figuring out the math, and drawing them in Electric Quilt. They had the hard part the rest of us had the easy part! Ha! Did I say easy?
While we were piecing the quilt Lois published Nearly Insane. If you have never heard of this quilt then do a google search. The original was made in Lancaster Co., PA c. 1870 by Salinda W. Rupp.
The name of my quilt is Pennsylvania Plenty.
BTW, this is a great book if you love old quilts. It is available used on Amazon for a very reasonable price.
