Railroad Crossing is a very old quilt pattern. It was first published in Farm & Fireside in 1884. It was called the New Four Patch.
There are two secondary patterns that stand out in this quilt. Secondary patterns emerge when two patterns are put together and they create another pattern. It depends on where your eye lands in the quilt which you see first. Do you see the original patterns or the seondary patterns?
