(also known as)
Here is a design titled SPRINGFIELD PATCH, (see Florence La Ganke's illustration of this same pattern left, dated 3/1/1938, and which she named MONTEREY).|
As SPRINGFIELD PATCH, the pattern actually debuted earlier in the Ladies Art Company Catalogue #472, in 1922. However, as published in her syndicated newspaper quilt column, La Ganke comments on the design as follows:
"Anyone who has taken the drive along the Pacific coast near Monterey remembers so happily and vividly the windblown cypress trees. [...] I can see the trees bent low by the wind as I look at the pattern. If I were you I would make this quilt in a dark figured green put together with a creamy background..." [If the quilt design] is an overall one...the effect when that is done is really extremely interesting and different." (See tiling below.)
Titled as SPRINGFIELD PATCH, the pattern is illustrated in Jinny Beyer's full-color QUILTER'S ALBUM OF PATCHWORK PATTERNS, p.103, #4. See also Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT PATTERNS, #4035.
