Original patterns by Pennsylvania Quilter

Towne Square II - New Summer 2015

Pattern: $9

Quilt Size: 24" x 30"

Block Size: 6"

An unusual early block that I just love. Do look at "supply list" to see the Original quilt top out of Vermont. Either size block would be dramatic in contemporary fabrics!

20 paper-piecing foundations included in pattern!

The original vintage quilt is shown in the pattern background (see supply list). The original 18" block pattern is included as Towne Square I.

Baby Blue II - New Summer 2015

Pattern: $9

Quilt Size: 25" x 30"

Block Size: 3"

Always gets me... the draw of soft denim blue. That, plus the magnificent Utility Quilting placement on the original quilt, and I had to replicate it. Look at "supply list" to see it. My little quilt needs washed a hundred times...then its done!

1" triangle foundation paper included in pattern!

The original vintage quilt is shown in the pattern background (see supply list). The original 6" block pattern is included as Baby Blue I.

Oak and Buds Medallion - New Summer 2015

Pattern: $12

Quilt Size: 60" square

I had to recreate "Oak and Buds" for teaching purposes and I got carried away! I used vintage tablecloth LINEN for the center background! All borders are simple basic blocks anyone can do...LOOK. Choose your favorite applique technique and get to work. Supply list has fabric choice advice.

Includes inserts on "How to work on vintage linen" and "Back-basting applique preparation"!

Oak and Buds

Pattern: $8

Quilt Size: 30" square

Block Size: 22" square

This design was taken right from a beautiful quilted vest…yes, cut from an early vintage quilt! I had to recreate it for myself: With honor and tribute to the original maker, I chose the Original colors. Note the shade of green…fugitive green to be specific!

Mariner Compass

Pattern: $8

Quilt Size: 78" square

Block Size: 22" square

This quilt was made in Canton, Pennsylvania around 2013-2014… Ah, Ha…looks more like early 19th Century to me! This pattern, inspired by quilts from early 1800’s, showcases a color way from the 1830 - 40’s. Of course, you may choose whatever you like. The hand quilting added immense grandeur! When done it truly captured the era I was searching for.

Also available: Mariner Compass Foundation Pack

Foundation pack: $12.00

Foundation pack contains 54 foundation sheets which is enough for for nine blocks. Printed on Betty's unique "paper-piecing paper".


Settler's Star & Four-Block Settler
Two Patterns in One!

Settlers Star

Pattern: $9.00

Quilt Size: 71.75" x 82.5"
Block Size: 8" square

A great quilt layout, using a design stripe as vertical sashing and tiny inner border.  If you love printed stripe fabrics and don't know where to use them, this is a good choice.  The stars are cut from large prints....all of it...the backgrounds as well!  Take a close look to see for yourself.  The remainder of the fabrics are calm.  Substititute floral or bali or funky....no matter...the quilt design will carry it through.

Settlers Star

New for 2014! The Settler's Star pattern now includes bonus instructions for using 36 star blocks in a Four Block setting.

Quilt Size: 60" square
Block Size: 26" square(8" stars)

Crown and Feather: Ca 1840

Pattern: $8

Quilt Size: 4-Block 84" square

Block Size: 36" square

The original quilt was discarded because it was too worn to be hung or displayed. She just wanted her auction money back, so it was offered to me for pennies! Circa 1835, appliqued with Top-Running stitch and quilted with very tiny stitches, many are 2-3 rows very closely aligned!

Crazy baskets

BittersweetBittersweet
Flying Crow Series 1 of 4

Pattern: $10

Quilt size 26" x 26"
Block size: 4.5"

Inspired by a full size vintage quilt from Carleton Co., ON Canada. I positioned the sawtooth border angles as they appeared in 1856! The colors remind me of bittersweet, found in the Pennsylvania woods. After the first frost, the berries burst forth the memorable red and orange you see here.

PA MustardPennsylvania Mustard
Flying Crow Series 2 of 4

Pattern: $10

Quilt Size: 42.5" x 53.5"
Block size: 6"

Looking at Pennsylvania side road landscapes, you find blue corn flowers and golden mustard plant blooming side by side. William Penn must have seen the same colorful roadside sight. The mustard plant was an historical source of dye for ancestors. This quilt boasts a border print fabric from the State Museum of Pennsylvania, c. 1820. Find your favorite border print fabric and make it fit!

Anniversary Quilt
Flying Crow Series #3 of 4

Pattern: $10

Quilt Size: 67.5" x 82.5"
Block size: 9"

"... all great things are simple!". The pieced lettering reveals our 30th anniversary date and sentiment. Document your moments forever. The value placement of this block and the solid center is in deference to the original quilt block from Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, which was inked with Fraktur inscriptions in the 1850s. Use the block centers as an opportunity to collect signatures and sentiments. Set with simple sashings, this quilt takes advantage of a printed stripe cut to different widths.

Good Wife

The Good Wife
Flying Crow Series 4 of 4

Pattern: $10

Quilt Size: 102" x 102"
Block size: 12"

This quilt has energy and the unexpected! Printed stripes, pillar print borders and that sawtooth border, rarely seen after the 1850s, take us to another era. The quilt itself speaks to contemporary bed size and interiors. "On the bed" side-view of this quilt is calm and inviting, while the front view is dramatic!

Medallion Madness

Medallion Madness

Pattern:$8.00

Quilt Size: 60" square

 

A center medallion framed by a series of borders is historically called a "frame" quilt. This pattern has four 12" basket blocks as its center (but you may chose to use something else!) and a series of pieced and appliqued borders. Fabric selection is based on value. You could make this quilt in any colorway, just keep the light, medium, and dark in their proper places. The pattern includes a special worksheet to help you stay organized while working with your choices.

"Never enough roses in my gardens...". This quilt boasts 32 1/2" blocks!  Applique technique is of your choice. Which ever way you choose to tackle it, it will move quickly because of the large pieces and gentle curves.  The sawtooth border can be simplified with foundations.

The following 4 patterns are designed for rotary cutting or using hand stamped patterns. Click here for more info.

1850 Lemoyne Star
(Betty's Little Bitties)

Pattern: $5

Quilt Size: 16.25" square
Block Size: 4.5" square

Rather than miter the border as we might do today, I chose an unusal 1850s approach. Much like transferware china of the 1850s, the corner blocks of the quilt do not perfectly "register". Some match and some don't. The stars in this project were hand stamped and hand pieced. Directions are included for rotary cutting and piecing without the hand stamping method. If you chose to take the hand stamp approach, the required set is called "Carpenter Star". Stamps are available from us when we vend at quilt shows, and online from cindyblackberg.com

Rolling Star
(Betty's Little Bitties)

Pattern: $5

Quilt Size: 32" square
Block Size: 6.75"

One evening on eBay, five antique "Rolling Star" quilt blocks went up for sale. Instead of bidding, I sketched the design, then gathered my set of star stamps and pink reproductions fabric. The result was the collection of beautiful blocks seen in this pattern. I am still making them! My second quilt will be a large one with alternate plain blocks. The stars in the project were hand stamped and hand pieced. Directions are included for rotary cutting and piecing without the hand stamping method. If you chose to use hand stamps, the required set is called "Carpenter Star". Stamps are available from us when we vend at quilt shows, and online from cindyblackberg.com

Old growthOld Growth

Pattern: $8.00

Quilt Size: 54" square
Block Size: 22.5" square

 

Stunning 4-block quilt that goes together easily. This original quilt has 4 "red fabrics" making up the triangle shading of the tree foliage. By using paper foundation triangles, they are all accurate with no need to square up. Utility quilting, using pearl cotton, is all part of the bold statement the quilt makes. Of course it can be quilted many other ways.

Nine of these trees, with adjusted sashing and borders, would make an impressive full or queen size quilt. A single block, set on point, can be graphic as well.
