OLD FASHIONED DAISY was designed as an individual block, but it has the type of centering and overall complexity to enable it to stand in as a "whole top" design all by itself. The pattern was illustrated twice by Nancy Cabot: the earlier incarnation in the Chicago Tribune, on July 29, 1934, accompanied by a large-scale drawing spanning two columns of print (reduced in size, illustrated left). See Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT DESIGNS, (#4209). In her comments Cabot states the following:
"There are periods when quilt makers show more activity in the designing of quilts rather than in the actual piecing of them. The years, 1800, 1825 and 1860 were marked by creation of a large number of our most beautiful quilts. The OLD FASHIONED DAISY is an example of originality, beauty, and charm of the year 1860. It is doubtful whether one could find more attractive flowered prints today than were used in the original of this pieced quilt."
There are quite a number of quilt design titles, happily, which celebrate things loved as antique or old. See at this site, for instance:
