    Is this what you mean?
    From http://www.womenfolk.com/quilting_history/afam.htm
    "Pine Cone Quilt - An African American Favorite
    The Pine Cone or Pine Burr quilt is a three dimensional quilt made of overlapping triangles. These triangles are put in a circular pattern starting at the center giving the look of a pine cone. Quilt Historian, Cuesta Benberry tells us, "From early to late twentieth century, the Pine Cone quilt was popular among southern African American quilters".2 This style quilt was considered a masterpiece work much as fine appliqué was considered in Caucasian communities."
