I decided to keep it simple this week after last week's challenge. This Pennyslvania block is not my favorite, but I felt it needed to be included since Barbara Bucher Snyder lived in Lancaster County. Doreen, my source for all things historically related to these blocks, tells me it was a popular block in the Lancaster area and the design most likely came from the hand woven coverlets that the Pennsylvania German (dutch) women made in the 1790's.
...so enjoy this week's block.
I don't have a name for this one yet. Many of her blocks were drafted from floor tiles found in churches, so they may not have official block names. We'll see what Doreen can come up with.
Note: if you are wondering where to find the patterns for these blocks, use the link button on my sidebar for 1880 Sampler Quilt Patterns. Enjoy!
