I'm looking for an antique quilting pattern called Sugarloaf. It consists of one-pieced pyramid and one solid pyramid alternated. It was shown on Fons and Porter episode 1307 as a quilt that Liz had purchased.
Any help on finding this pattern would be appreciated.
http://www.quiltindex.org/ has several variations of the quilt but no pattern.
I couldn't find where it was called something besides Sugarloaf, either. Good luck with your search.
hi bonnielee, welcome to the group. i couldn't find the pattern or a picture, but it is alternating equilateral triangles. one is a large triangle and the alternating one is the same sized triangle made up of nine little triangles. it is a great pattern.
gini in north idaho
I found this pattern, but the alternating triangle is not pieced.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
Scroll down to find the quilt here. It looks like she sells a book that has the pattern in it. Click on "To learn more..."
Here's a photo tutorial that might be helpful.
My final suggestion...
Here is an old video of Fons & Porter showing a quick method of creating the pieced triangles. It's available on QNN.
so i was wrong, again. the sugar loaf pattern is a 45 degree triangle, the third one down that nancy found is sugarloaf. you alternate this block with a plain 45 degree triangle. this is a great quilt as a scrappy
Eleanor Burns of Quilt in a Day has that block in her book called El's Kitchen.
In fact, I am getting ready to make that block.
I hope this helps.
I found this and thought it was great to look at .
