A Perennial Favorite Returns

The results of the 2010 New Quilts from an Old Favorite contest from The National Quilt Museum are now available in book form.

This venerable old block received some thoroughly modern treatment in the hands of talented quilters from across the country. The 18 finalists share their stories, approaches, tips, and techniques.

With a few patterns and a couple of templates from the book, you, too, can create a fruitful rendition of the block many also know by Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, among other names.

Future contests in the annual event are Baskets (2012), Jacob's Ladder (2013), and Carolina Lily (2014). Rules are available at The book is available from there or by calling 800-626-5420. Ask for item #8350.
