The pattern used to be free on line. I think the fabric line is Windham. I have been able to buy some of it at MillEnd fabric for about $6.00 a yard. I am a relatively new quilter who just retired after 27 years of teaching high school. I love having my time!

Found this at Windham - cool pattern:

Pennock Album, c. 1840

The Pennock Album Quilt is thought to have been made by Isabelle Pennock Lukens for Sarah Wistar Pennock of Philadelphia and Chester County PA.

This quilt, which the fabric collection has been derived from, is a fineexample of template piecing and includes a wide variety of early to mid 19thcentury printed cotton fabrics. Ink drawings and handwritten names decorate the squares along with the dates of 1842 and 1843.

The Quilt top is an important part of Chester County's vast quiltingheritage. Elaborately pieced or appliqu├ęd friendship quilts, vibrant crazypatterns, and plain utilitarian quilted bed covers are among the many quiltsmade in Chester County for the past 150 years.

Windham Fabrics is proud to work with the Chester County PA HistoricalSociety, in bringing you this fine example of period fabrics.  We inviteyou to be innovative in your use of the Pennock quilt top as it appears in the museum's archives.
