Below we gathered different tutorial versions of the Clamshell Quilt Pattern.
1. Vintage Clamshell Block
Here is a tutorial of the clamshell block from AQS blog. This vintage clamshell block inspiration was from Ruth Ebright Finley, a quilt collector and the author of Old Patchwork Quilts and the Women Who Made Them (1929).
