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