Kansas City Star Stencils and a Giveaway
Contest is over and my two winners are:
Ellen M. from Spain (digital copy of the pattern)
Vivian O. from Pennsylvania (CD of pattern and this lovely, embroidered block)
Many thanks to ALL who commented!
More blocks from the Kansas City Star. This is a series called "Quilting Patterns and Motifs" which features 27 quilting motifs from 1930 to 1938. I redrew each of these stencils using Adobe Illustrator. They are NOT scans of the old newspaper clippings.
This is an orphan block I got about 20 years ago when I was an editor with Quilt Magazine. The unknown maker decided to use it for embroidery. Lovely, huh?

And pattern back:
|Designs #17 - 27|
|Motif Design #26a|
OK. If I'm going to show 26a then I have to show 26b, right? This also is perfect for a continuous line design. It fits into a 6" space, but could easily be resized (via your printer settings) to make it larger. This is like stitching feathers in a circle. And just think of what you can do in that circle!

Contest is over Friday, October 25 at midnight (EST).
USA residents: CD plus the block. International visitors: digital copy from my Etsy store. I will pick one USA resident and one International visitor.
Thanks for stopping by!
