From Quiltmaker magazine Issue #19, Early Summer, 1990

This is the second quilt I made from this issue of Quiltmaker magazine.  I about wore out the magazine before I completed both quilts!  I made this quilt in 1992 and also entered it in competition and got a blue ribbon for it in 1992.  It was featured in the Stitch & Sew section of the Aug 1993 issue of Quiltmaker.

Very nice.  Is it paper pieced?  Worthy of the blue ribbon

Thanks for the comments.  I was thrilled to get the ribbon!

The pattern included templates.  Was not paper pieced. I wonder if it could be updated to paper piece.  At that time I had not heard of paper piecing.  It's still not my favorite way to piece, even though it is the best thing for tiny odd shaped pieces.  I just hate trying to remove the paper!
