Just when I thought I'd have to call, my ordered pattern came from DAR. This quilt was appliqued by Mary Mannakee in 1850. Janet from Quiltsalot showed this pattern on her blog and challenged others to tackle this project and I like a challenge. Have no one or place in mind for this quilt but I think it will be fun to follow along with others: Cathy of Cabbage Quilts, Jan fromBemused, Kathi from Inspired by Antique Quilts and Juliann from lining up my stitches.
(Tell me if you are doing it too and I'll add you to the list.)
Pattern is from DAR Museum, Washington DC: http://www.dar.org/museum/shop.cfm
