COLT’S CORRAL, 6″, Light

The version of this with five stripes as published c. 1895 by the Ladies Art Company, with the ignominious title of Five Stripes! Colt’s Corral came from the a column in the Seattle Post-lntelligencer in the 1920s and 30s. The only difference between this and a Rail Fence pattern is that the stripes whirl out from the centre.

An easy one, to make up for yesterday!
