    My customer brought me several antique quilts to repair and quilt and bind. I could give her the names of most of them but I don't have a clue to the name of this block. Do you know its name?

    It has parts that look like they are constructed like an attic window, only they've put the 4 mitered corners together to form a cross or plus in the middle. But if it has a special name, I don't know it either.

    It looks a lot like a repeating crosses block that I've seen. I'm not sure if it technically is, though.

    Looks like the quiltmaker adapted the pattern and took several seams out of it :thumbup:

    This is a nelson's victory. Nothing says it has to have different colors on the miter.

    Thank you so much, my customer will be so pleased that I was able to find out the name of this quilt.
