    It is Job's Tears. I stumbled across it on All People Quilt website. The pattern is not there but they used it in one of the quilting design pictures. Hopefully, now that you know what it is called you can find the pattern. I'm sure it is old.

    I have the book Better Homes and Gardens Creative American Quilting. Page 55 shows a picture of a quilt that is exactly like Jenny's. The book dates it from the 1930's and 1940's. The name of that quilt is the Snowball Quilt. The white octagons forms were probably made from sheets back in those days. It appears just as other blocks, this one also has different names depending on regions of quilters over the years. I personally am not seeing Jobs Tears block in this quilt. Jenny's looks different than the one on the Quilting Design Gallery on allpeoplequilt.com.

    You can achieve the same look of this quilt without doing the Y seams and the hexagons. I have this drawn up in EQ7 and it is a simple block that could easily be achieved with paper piecing and no Y seams.
