    My great grandmother pieced this quilt in the 1930s in Indiana. I am now hoping to finish it but would like to have more information before I begin. If anyone recognizes it, I would be deeply appreciative.

    On pg. 3 of "849 Traditional Patchwork Patterns" by Susan Winter Mills it is called Box and Star. Hope this helps you. It is a beautiful quilt and a treasure to have.

    It's also known as Garden Star. As with most older blocks it has several names.
