Quilts: Block names

Check block names against Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara J. Brackman.
• If a block is found in Brackman, capitalize it; if not lowercase it.
• If we can determine that a block has been formally named by a designer, capitalize it.

In addition, capitalize these block names:
• Corps of Discovery
• Courthouse Steps
• Four-Patch
• Nine-Patch
• Rail Fence
• Square-in-a-Square

Lowercase
• hourglass (the four-triangle square, not the Hour Glass blocks referenced in Brackman)
