    Today I delivered my moms B-day quilt to her. while there mom pulled out grannies hand pieced and quilted treasure(to me). Grannie passed 4 years ago but her love of quilting passed to me. Mom keeps this stored away, that breaks my heart. Grannie was colorblind in the worst way. We used think she was like a dog and only seen black and white, so quilting was very hard for her. If someone wasnt there to tell her the colors matched she just threw things together. Any way here it is!

    I've never seen this block before anybody have any idea what its called?

    Well, I think your grannie did a terrific job, regardless of her "disability". What an inheritance.

    Wow! That is a real treasure. I'll be watching to see if anyone can name the block, too.
