Quilters' Book Club member June read and re-read The Persian Pickle Club to make a note of all of the quilt patterns mentioned in the book. She plans to make a Persian Pickle Club Sampler Quilt. Here are the patterns she found:
Grandmother's Flower Garden*
Rocky Road to Kansas*
Wandering Foot (also known as Turkey Tracks)*
Peony (the pattern Zepha called Piney)*
Road to California*
Dresden Plate* shown above
Double Axe Head (also known as Friendship Forever and Apple Core)*
Several years ago, each member of my quilting group made an Egg Money Quilt as a block of the month. We each bought the book Egg Money Quilts: 1930's Vintage Samplers by Eleanor Burns and made one block each month, using Eleanor's unique techniques and methods. (Your local library may have this book.)
I put a star behind each of the above patterns that are found in the book. On the Quilt in a Day website, you can click on free videos of Eleanor making several of the quilt blocks. She also gives interesting information on quiltmaking in the 1930's: http://quiltinaday.com/theater/egg/egg1.html.
Eleanor's book and the videos really go perfectly with The Persian Pickle Club, don't they? And thank you so much to June for researching all of the quilt patterns mentioned in the book!
