Two by Six
This is one of Judy’s Puzzle quilts, inspired by a piece by Margit Echols that appeared in Games Magazine years ago. Each traditional block is matched with a second block that has the same arrangement of pieces, of the same size and shape, but a different arrangement of values. Can you find the pairs? This quilt has 48 6-inch blocks.
Judy used this quilt to teach Puzzle Quilt classes. The quilt was exhibited at the Empty Spools Conference in Asilomar in March 1996, where Judy was a guest teacher. Her daughters Blythe and Darien came along on that trip. It was also exhibited at the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters show in 1996. Quilt was started 4/1/1995 and finished 1/1/1996.
