Grandma's Hopscotch

In France the first Sunday in March is Fête des grands-mères, Grandmothers' Day.  To celebrate I made this block, Grandma's Hopscotch.

Grandma's Hopscotch

I chose the fabrics during a bout of insomnia; Grandma's Hopscotch is a fair description of my brain when I can't sleep.  The pattern is from Maggie Malone's 120 Patterns for Traditional Patchwork Quilts.  According to Malone this pattern was in the Kansas City Star in the late 1920s or early 1930s.
