in the book "The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America" there is a picture of a block called "Peeny Pen's Cottage". it is rounded like a Hobbit house, very cute.(no pattern) Underneath is a little poem,
Peeny Pen's House by the side of the road
looked like a round little hoppity toad.
I have never seen this pattern anywhere else and I just googled the poem lines and came up with nothing.
Anyone know where it came from? Anyone ever heard of it?
How fun. I have no idea but it sounds like fun :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I just noticed on Amazon there is a book of Carrie Hall's Blocks, that seems like it would have a pattern. But at $25 I may have to draw my own.
How about trying the Library in your area?
You can look online to see what is availiable..
Hm.... just searching around, and found this link, maybe one of these would be worthwhile checking into?
I was mainly wondering about the origin of the name and the quote. Odd that it doesn't show up anywhere on the internet.
