Square in a Square is a favorite of mine. I love all the things you can do with it! I've found a number of examples of how our fore-mothers used the pattern.
Square in a Square
This first one is a beautiful example of the triple square in a square. I love the alternate blocks giving it open space.

* * * * * * *Cheddar and White Square in a Square (Alamanizer)
Miss M. Pattison
65" x 76"
The name on this one intrigues me. I haven't been able to trace it, I've only found the name used by a couple of people. In any case, this one seems to be put together using Broken Dishes blocks alternated with plain blocks in white and cheddar.
You can see a bit more here:
* * * * * * *Chintz & Applique Crib Quilt
38" x 38.75"
This one is old, circa 1800. It boasts applique and stuffed work with a fun medallion center. The quilting in the center is a basket of fruit, and beautiful.

68" x 80.5"
Isn't this one fun? It's so cheerful and looks as if it should live on a boy's bed! The flying geese sashing is a fun touch.

I love the clean simplicity of this one. And there are some fun fabrics used....stars and flors. You can see more pictures at the link below. Scroll down the page and you'll see them near the bottom.
