The pattern is called fiddlesticks.  The fabrics were from a quilt guild noodle exchange.  One was reds and the other was blacks and whites.  I purchased the pattern when I was Iowa attending the funerals of two family members.  The fabric was cut while I was staying with my dad after he had surgery and my mom was in the hospital.  After having carpel tunnel surgery my therapist told me to quilt, so I pieced the top.  A friend machine quilted it for me.  One of the quilting patterns was called square dance, hence the name of Fiddle sticks at a square dance.  I sewed the binding on the week my mother passed away.  A few weeks later it earned the first blue ribbon at a quilt show.  While I could give away almost any quilt I have made, this quilt has way too many memories for me to ever give away.

Sounds like this helped you get through some difficult times.  Good one to keep.

I have this pattern and Kansas Troubles fabric to make it with.  Was the pattern easy to follow?  It's in my "things to make " pile.

I found that this was a fun and easy quilt to make.  Actually ended up teaching it as a class for my guild.  A couple of beginners ended up with beautiful quilts.
