Width: 8.75"   Length: 8.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric with a pieced border of the same fabrics as the four center blocks. Quilted with clear thread.

Artist Statement: Not all bachelor's are puzzled by quilts, but evidently some are, since this block by that name is old and frequently used. My grandmother gave my mother several quilts that she didn't use or want, since they had been made and given to grandpa by old girl friends before he married grandma. He never seemed puzzled when I knew him, but then he had been married many years at that time.

Dedication: To my grandparents, who worked hard all their lives and still had very little in the way of wealth when they passed on, but who always seemed cheerful and happy, at least when we went to visit.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $68.81 for the AAQI.
