"Puss in the Corner" is the name of the traditional quilt pattern used to make this wall quilt by Patricia
Cummings which was machine-quilted by Dreamland Machine-Quilting, LLC.
The following quilt utilizes vintage quilt blocks to assemble into a new quilt.
"Scrap Quilt 2016" is composed of vintage quilt blocks and modern borders and cornerstones, as
well as backing fabric. The project is machine-quilted. The 66" x 66" quilt serves as a "fabric study"
quilt for the 1940s/1950s. See Pat's Quilts and Musings blogspot for writings about this quilt. Also,
please see our Quilter's Muse Publications Facebook page for close-ups. Photo by James Cummings
