Kansas Dugout Vintage Quilt Pattern

kansas dogout quilt

This Kansas Dugout pattern has been around awhile. I don’t know the history but I’m guessing it appeared in the Kansas City Star newspaper, famous for their regular offerings of quilting patterns. I’m sure it helped with their subscriptions!

Just 2 pieces, a square and a double pointy rectangle (advanced mathematical term unknown to google) are needed for the simple repeating pattern. Setting the squares on point at the corners can be a little challenging so not what I’d call beginner friendly.
