A lady was
presented, by two of her girl friends,
with the pretty pieces of silk patchwork shown in our
will be seen that both pieces are made up of squares all of the same
size—one 12x12 and the other 5x5.
She proposes to join them
together and make one square patchwork quilt, 13x13, but, of course,
she will not cut any of the material—merely cut the stitches
where necessary and join together again.
friend assures her that there need be no more than four
pieces in all
to join up for the new quilt.
Could you show her
how this little
needlework puzzle is to be solved in so few pieces?
