There is a quilt pattern I admired for a long time. It is quite common, and I saw it in quilt shops, at quilt exhibitions and in books. And I always wanted to do a quilt with just this pattern. I didn’t know its name and I had no plans to find out—until I stumbled upon it once again on the last visit to my favourite quilt shop which will be closing forever in a few days.
