Quilt Notes: the above version of CROW'S FOOT is illustrated in Rhoda Ochser Goldberg's alphabetical QUILTING AND PATCHWORK DICTIONARY (p.120), diagrammed on a full graph as a four-patch design. The same geometric configuration, but with a different distribution of dark and light, is illustrated in Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT PATTERNS (#4184), and listed as first appearing in print in the Ladies Art Company Catalogue (#118) in the late 19th century.

Prints of crow's feet are most visible in the snow. The birds are helpful in keeping the environment clean and healthy, eating carrion while they overwinter in northern climes.

Other designs utilizing tracks or footprints as geometric figures at this site include:
FANCY FOOT, BEAR'S PAW, and PIGEON TOES.
