Phoebe's Favorite Dogtooth #9: Cochise County


Phoebe's Favorite Dogtooth #9: Cochise County by Elsie Ridgley

Collection of the Arizona Historical Society
Attributed to Cora Viola Howell Slaughter (1860-1941)
and Edith Stowe (?-1938), Cochise County, Arizona, c. 1890.
Ladies' Circle Patchwork Quilt published it as "Cochise County."

Green cactus-like leaves with points slashed and turned Dogtooth-style.

Two sheets for our last pattern. One Dogtooth technique, one conventional
template applique.

Denniele Bohannon's last block

Wisconsin project saw this great example, picture much improved here.

Setting of nine-patches & triple sash plus fading solid color
fabrics good clues to Southern origins.

See many more examples of Cochise County at this post:

Many of them look to be decades earlier than Cochise County, Arizona, established in 1891, but the name is so colorful.

This is the last of the nine dog-tooth applique patterns. Becky sketched her set for blocks on point.

Denniele's plan
