Yankee’s Puzzle Quilt Pattern
The Yankee’s Puzzle quilt is a very old and well-known quilt design that is just as much at home in modern settings as it was in yesteryear’s.
Just a single piece in two different colors forms an eye-catching twelve-inch block; and when these blocks are set together, you will have a most attractive coverlet known as “Yankee’s Puzzle Quilt”.
