I found it!
This is the other Letters quilt I mentioned yesterday -- turns out it's in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, which seems to have quite a large collection of quilts, both classic and fairly modern.
I spent this snowy day in my sewing room, allegedly cleaning up, but I couldn't resist sitting down and sewing a little at the end of the day. I tried to piece one of those wacky stringy squares from That Star Quilt, and got about halfway through one, before my leftover strips were gone, and the bobbin thread ran out. That seemed like the time to quit.
The resulting half a block is, well, interesting. I'm going to go look at it now, and see how it looks after a couple of hours of distance.
