The bolster case design simply starts with one four-patch and two nine-patches, which are then built out with strips to the desired size. I love to make quilts like this. You can vary the strip width and you can piece the strip to end up with a very antique looking quilt. You will see this concept in one of my future magazine publications (probably early next year).
Here is a sampling of all the fantastic prints in this case.
The back. Check out that aqua color. It really is 1870--not 1930!
The final pillowcase is an interesting one because it is made partly from 1870 cheater cloth. See Eileen Trestain's fabric dating book for an example on page 75.
All cheater in the above photo.
