Quilt Squares from the ROOTS-L Web Pages


If you were looking for ROOTS-L genealogy information rather than just our pretty pictures, you probably wanted our home page.

If you would like to use any of these images, and you're an individual or a non-profit organization, then you have my permission. But I request in return that, on the page that uses this artwork, you either include a link to the corresponding ROOTS-L page (for instance, if you use the Iowa Star quilt square, then link to the ROOTS-L Iowa page) or a link to http://www.rootsweb.com/roots-l/artwork.html

My Mom makes beautiful quilts, but I fear this is as close as I'll ever come. Most of the quilt squares are based on designs found in Maggie Malone's 1,001 Patchwork Designs or in Beth Summer's American Quilt Blocks: 50 Patterns for 50 States. The Amish pattern I used on some pages is pretty standard, and I have seen it many places -- probably any book on Amish quilting would have more information. The tree square used on the ROOTS-L main page was inspired by the lovely quilt that used to be pictured on the Whiffle Tree Quilt page. The Canadian maple leaf is completely original and probably impossible to quilt, though Mom didn't run screaming from the room when I showed it to her, so who knows? The UK and Ireland image similarly is completely original, isn't even a quilt square, exactly, but inspiration was fading fast...

Oh, and yes, some of the color schemes are a bit lurid. I was maybe getting a little punchy after I had done a bunch of these.
