New Year Quilt Blocks


Brad and I never do anything for New Year's.  I don't remember us even ever going out.  It wasn't that important to us and to be frank, we never remain awake until midnight.  

We quilters tend to have a quilt pattern for everything and New Year's isn't forgotten.  Here is a block published by Nancy Page in 1939:

When I found the Nancy Page block, I was actually looking for another.  Many many years ago, I had purchased a bag of little bits of paper.  A quilter of bygone years had saved little images of newspaper clippings all depicting quilt blocks.  I'm sure she saved them for inspiration.  Among the scraps was this one:

It certainly is festive and a bit busy but it's charming in it's own right.  I've never seen a quilt of this pattern.  Have you?

Wishing you all a safe and happy New Year!

  1. Happy New Year! We are spending it quietly also. I wonder if anyone in the future will happen upon all the quilt patterns and blocks that I've saved on my computer. There's more than I'll ever make in many lifetimes.
