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.

I found this pattern, but the alternating triangle is not pieced.

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.
