Pattern: Rumnik Cheema


“H” Variation (Quiltmaker’s Name: “Milky Way”) – Nettie Young, 1971

This quilt is predominantly made up of larger square sections which are composed of various other shapes. Most of the shapes that are represented with in the square are a form of circle. We have multiple full circle patterns as well as half circles that face each other creating a full circle in the viewers mind. In addition, we see patterns of diamond and hexagons that fulfill a larger role in creating a “H”  shape as a whole. I think this was done intentionally by the artist to create focus point that capture the eye of the viewer.
