Old Glory

As you make your plans for the upcoming Fourth of July, enjoy this thrifty quilt. Barbara's Encyclopedia traces these names for this block: Shoo Fly, Eight Point All Over, Triangles and Squares (KC Star 1952). I've owned it for 10 years, it came from an antique shop in Ottawa, Kansas where I've found many of my favorite quilts. Measuring 76" x 83", it is about 100 years old. It's hand pieced and hand quilted.
