I've been asked about the American Dream quilt that I made as a block of the month in 2003/2004. The patterns were not available for a while. I was surfing the web this week in preparation for a lecture I had yesterday. I had this quilt in my lecture and wanted to see if I could find the pattern source. I found the maker quite by accident. The name of the company on the patterns I purchased was Pickled Pieces. Well Jill has changed the name of her company and it is now Jillily Studio. It's great I found out this information as I had a few attendees wanting the pattern. If you are interested visit her site at: http://www.jillilystudio.com . I didn't see the pattern on the site. However, I contacted Jill and she does have it available for sale; if you want it, drop her an email.
Here is the one I completed in 2004.
I like it so well that I made another when I taught the BOM at a local sew & vac. This time I used black/grey for background. Then I had a little fun with the star and log cabin blocks and added the two-state abbreviation in them.
