    In your opinion, what would this block pattern be? The picture is poor and doesn't show the block well, but it is the only picture I have. This quilt was stolen from me in the late 1980's and was made by my father's mother. She passed in the early 1940's. The sashing was light blue, the setting blocks and binding were pink, the backing was white, cotton batting.

    Ignore the person and the room and try to visualize the quilt if you can. It is difficult. Sorry.

    It looks like a honeycomb set 4 to a block

    Is there any way you could take a picture of part of the quilt and post it?
    I really can't tell from this one. But it's a cute pic :)

    I agree. You can see the "X" formed in the block by her knee.

    I no longer have the quilt. It was stolen from me in the late 1980's and probably sold to an antique place in Gulfport, MS. I will check on your honeycomb idea. I was thinking Kansas City Dugout block maybe. Except instead of putting the blocks together side by side, she separated them with sashing. That is a double bed, the quilt is on and it came down pretty far on the sides so I am thinking maybe 5 blocks across plus a 3 or 4 inch sashing, using maybe a 12 inch block. Have to try it out on paper. This is a new project and I am wanting to duplicate this as closely as possible.

    I have been looking for a long time for the right shade of light blue and pink. The solids for 1930's colors are too dark.
