A Simple Block Patterned Quilt

Just because a pattern is simple, it doesn't mean that it will be any less beautiful when
assembled. Above is the perfect example of just how a simple pattern can be made
into a charming bed cover. This design is so easy that even a very young child can sew it!
      This square, block quilt pattern from Kentucky was published in a tiny column of the Daily public ledger., May 30, 1907. It reads, "Here is a pieced sample of a quilt which some of your readers have been asking for. I have not seen it in any paper as yet. Thought the ladies would think it strange that I did not send it in after I had written about it. I have seen several inquiries about it lately - Alberta."
      Patterns as simple as this 4'x4' square sewn together to create an entire quilt make excellent projects for beginners. You can cut the squares in advance using scrap fabrics and carry these in a small tote or basket along with: quilters thread, sharp needles and a pair of scissors. Work at piecing the squares during the free moments of a car ride or during a long journey/vacation. Before you know it, you will have a lovely quilt top to tie or quilt into your fist handmade blanket!
