Quilt Inspiration; A Soldier’s Quilt

June 3, 2009

I was just playing around with Electric Quilt this morning and came up with this design. I think that it would make a nice quilt for a soldier.


Barbara Brackman calls the block design California in her Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. It was first published in a syndicated mail-order column called Nancy Page, which appeared in many periodicals in the late 1920’s to the 1940’s.

I think that it would be nice quilted with Jodi Beamish’s panto Stars and Loops.


Too bad making a real quilt isn’t as quick and easy as designing in EQ!!



  1. Oh my word Deb, I adore your color choices and quilting design you've chosen for this quilt. Those quilted stars would be perfect! You have quite an eye.

  2. It would make a great QOV. I usually think about RWB versions of quilts I make too.

  3. I am partial to it already, for obvious reasons. You know, I played around with the blocks on that qov you quilted and thought about changing it to this. But was afraid the quilt police would come get me. This is gorgeous!
