    Hi all, I bought a hand quilted queen bed quilt years ago at the Lancaster Quilt show and I never did learn the name of this pattern. Does anyone know?
    Thanks
    Pat

    Don't know, but I'm planning on making a snowflake quilt with hex blocks and this block looks like it would be a great addition!

    That is so beautiful. I would have the same problem a DH, and 8 puppy paws, a lots of pomeranian dog hair. Thanks for posting your picture and hopfully some one will come up with the pattern or at least the block. I'll keep watching.

    No idea, but it sure is pretty! Did you take it apart or make out your own templates?

    Hi Carol
    I didn't make this, I actually tried to trace the pieces but was way beyond me. It seems to be a common design in Lancaster area and also that fabric is everywhere there.
