    Name that block

    Family lore says this is from World War I. I have looked through all sorts of resources, including Jinny Beyer's humungous book of patchwork patterns. But I can't find the name of this block. Do you know what it is?

    Name:  Aunt Eliza's block.JPG

Size:  413.4 KB The quilt looks like this: Name:  Aunt Eliza's quilt, c. 1919.JPG

Size:  1.20 MB The mystery block alternates with uneven nine patch (or puss in the corner).

    It almost looks like an X's and O's quilt, but not quite.

    I can't name the block, wish I could. It's a WONDERFUL quilt and you're very lucky to have it in the family.

    not exact.

    It is known as Night and Day 2 on Quilters cache.

    Edited to add, I'm making a quilt now out of this block.

    Yes, "Night and Day" is similar to one in Jinny Beyer's book, but the proportions are just a bit different. I tried to duplicate the block, and it's really difficult. Makes sense to piece it by hand as Aunt Eliza did.
