This traditional quilt pattern from our July/Aug issue uses a center panel that is a reproduction of a “calicoe” panel printed by textile printer John Hewson in the late 1700s in Philadelphia. The majority of quilt fabrics Liz used for the eight borders surrounding the center are in the style of printed fabrics from that same time period. This quilt is fat quarter friendly.
