Little Dipper has 8" Drinking Gourd blocks. The big Drinking Gourd has 12" blocks. I used the same setting with the cutaway triangles creating the inner border. They are 1" (fin.) in the smaller version. I got the outer border fabric in Philadelphia. (That fits into the whole theme of these two quilts: the Drinking Gourd is another name for the Big Dipper, which guided slaves who were escaping via the Underground Railroad. The quilts are in CW reproduction fabrics. PHL, with its large Quaker population, was a major center for abolitionists.)
Caron at the Valley Quilting Studio did a fabulous job quilting the Drinking Gourd. I put the binding on this weekend.
Here is a comparison photo of the two.
