I thought you might like to see the quilt that made me fall in love with this pattern in the first place! I love the contrast of the green and black block! Why this is called the Traditional Double T quilt pattern.. I am not sure. Seems to me it should be called the Traditional Quad T.
The one I am working on will not be as striking as this beauty above due to the contrast in my fabrics. Isn't it great how you can take one quilt pattern and make so many different end results based on the selection of fabric?
Here are a few more of my finished blocks:
So I decided to do a little "research" and find out the origin of the block name or how it came to be the Double T. The picture below should explain why it is called the Double T. Once you have the pattern down you can arrange it in a block like I the one I am currently working on.. or you can make it as below, which reveals the "double T". The Double T block has a long history in antique quilts. The women of the Temperance movement made a difference in their time by standing with determination for what they believed was right. The Double T stood as the symbol of their resolve. Just FYI!
