I found this New Home block in 5,500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone and drafted it to 6" finished. It consists of squares and half square triangles so was not difficult to make.
In Part 2 of "the rest of the story," Hattie writes about the home she moves to after her marriage to Frank George in October 1917.
"We had no trees on this hilltop except the ones planted by Frank the spring of 1917, and we had lots of wind from across the open prairies north. This seemed very different from living on the Woodbury farm, which had many native trees all along the Marais des Cygnes River and in our yard." (My grandmother christened her new home Sunbyrne Farm because of this.)
