I found this pattern in a magazine 16 years ago. It took me a little bit to figure out how to make the blocks. I made a small sample then and have saved it, with the magazine, all these years. Now that the kids are older I thought I would give it a try. The quilt is 94 inches square. The reason I made it square was because I did end into 16 small pieces. The put those together by fours. It is done all on a regular machine.
