Boston Commons Design
The Boston Commons quilt design was inspired by the Amish Sunshine & Shadow and English Trip Around the World designs. Instead of taking contrasting bands of color in block form and putting it into a diamond figure, this instead presents it in an elogated rectangular fashion. Harkening back to the nation's oldest park, the Boston Commons probably can date back to the Colonial era. New Englanders called it Philadelphia Pavement in earlier times. Guess the Boston moniker survived!
