Pine Burr Quilt Pattern

Did you know the Official State Quilt of Alabama is the Pine Burr? The quilt involves cutting fabric squares, folding the squares into triangles, and sewing the triangles to the quilt foundation fabric. One quilt could include thousands of triangles or burrs. The result is spectacular! You can make a Pine Burr Quilt using Quilter Loretta Pettway Bennett's pattern:

Arkansas quilter Mary Allen Smith Williams stitched this Pine Cone Quilt (photo) ca. 1950.

Thanks for visiting my blog Kyra. And I think the idea of a "state" quilt emblem is fabulous!

I LOVE this Pine Burr quilt (especially since I'm from Alabama!) But I found another quilt pattern on the internet called the Pine Burr that's totally different. What's the deal?
