    Here is a rudimentary drawing of something I'm trying to replicate. I know I've seen it before in quilts from the 1930's.



    Note, the green points may be more pointy, and the center square may be smaller as a result. However, the white/pink edges are definitely half square triangles.

    Any help would be appreciated. Do you know its name?

    Sorry, not seen that one before but it's nice. The green would make diamonds when put together.

    I think there was a post on this recently. Maybe someone can tell you.

    Looks like Storm at Sea, or maybe not ;-)

    Thank you. It reminds me of a flower.

    It does look familiar, but I'm not sure I know it. I am visiting my daughter and don't have access to my pattern book. Look on quilterscache.com site and maybe it's there. I'm using my SIL's computer or I would.
