Does anybody know the name of the pattern of the quilt shown in the Lincoln movie on Thaddeus Stevens
bed ? A picture of the quilt would be great as well.
What colors were used in the quilt?
Hi Linda, the stars were white or cream and dark blue and the squares were yellow / ochre.
That sounds pretty, Beatrix. Was it a 2 block quilt, like a star block with an alternating plain square? Or are you saying that there were blue and cream stars on a yellow background? Trying to picture this :) I probably won't get to see this movie until it's out on video.
Hi Beatrix, I just watched the movie last night and wondered the same thing! I made my husband stop the movie and I sketched the pattern. When looked in the Quick and Easy Block Tool I have I realized the star pattern was an Ohio Star. There are five of these in a nine patch block with a solid as the other four patches. It was then surrounded (sashing) by a medium tan color. The center square on the Ohio Star appeared to be the same color as the four blocks in the corners. The other triangles seem to have a focus fabric and either the same color as the other solid blocks or something that gave it that appearance. I have not found a picture of it yet, but am still looking.
It is a variation of an Ohio Star. email me privately and we can discuss.
Hi Brenda, sounds that you have solved my problem. How can I email you privately ?
