Reading through the Quilt Index description, I am a bit curious as to why the blocks all finished at 12.5″ x 13.5″, and not squared at 12.5″ x 12.5″ or 13.5″ x 13.5″. That wasn’t brought up during the program, and at the time the blocks all looked squared up to me! I wasn’t quite concerned about whether the blocks were squared up when I saw the quilt in person because I was mainly captivated by the beautiful printed fabrics incorporated in the blocks!
These are my two favorite blocks. That miniature Lone Star is just astounding – remember, all those pieces have to fit in a 12.5″ x 13.5″ block!
Somerset Patchwork and Quilting of Australia has a pattern reproducing the Thomas Sykes quilt, sans the mini Lone Star block.
I would love to hear from you if you have reproduced the Sykes quilt.
I hope you have enjoy the Thomas Sykes quilt! Happy Monday, dear Friends!
