In 2014 I drafted this pattern and with 30's reproductions, made a top I named "party line" because it looked like the telephone wires before they all went underground. It is a childhood memory of riding along and watching the lines between the posts, following them up and down with my finger.
Our telephone was on a party line--at least 7 families on it at one time.
And, my mom was a switchboard operator--all the more reason to make another Party Line quilt!
Block finishes 9 by 10 1/2 inches
Prints cut: three 9 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, one 9 1/2 by 2 inches
Solids cut: three 9 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches
The second print rectangle is the 2 inch cut one.
I wait to press until I am ready to set--I press half of the blocks to the top and the other half of the blocks to the bottom, allowing the pieces to nest.
My pattern. Use at your pleasure
