    Hi!

    I am writing my thesis in part of the work of the artist Rob Pruitt. In his 2010 exhibition titled Pattern and Degradation, he utilized Amish quilt forms creating works that reflect a contemporary take on traditional form.

    I am trying to figure out the name of the pattern that is utilized in this "quilt"

    I would be soooooo grateful to any insight you wonderful quilters could give me.

    THANKS SO MUCH & CRAFT ON

    This is Tree Everlasting, I believe, done in very bright modern colors.

    The sub-units are called Flying Geese.

    They can be put together in countless ways.

    Google image on Flying Geese Quilts for more variations.




    I'd never heard of Tree Everlasting - this listing shows the units have flattened tops, not pointed like flying geese.
