    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    How old is it? It reminds me of something that might have been printed in a local paper in the 30s.

    Could be an anchor or a boat but it looks more like a daisy to me because of the green stems.

    I searched six ways to Sunday and couldn't find anything similar unless you alter one of the anchor patterns to match.

    Could be a one of a kind pattern.

    I'm going with an anchor as my best guess, too.

    I agree with the idea of flowers. Each one has a green stem and I don't think it would be that way for an anchor. Flowers in a fancy pot or vase

    The anchor is winning. My vote too.

    My first thought was an anchor. But 0n second thought I don't think the background would be pink if it was meant to be an anchor. The "green stem" does not stand out on my computer. If it is green than I definitely think it is a flower "arrangement" in a low bowl. Neat pattern though. Is there any history to the quilt. An easy enough pattern to duplicate.

    Well, the top is definitely a 9 patch; don't know about the bottom.

    Looks like an anchor to me. Was there a relative in the Navy?

    I agree with with Fastpetal and I can see the green stem. Such a unique quilt.

    I really have no idea. That pink color fabric has turned up on some antique blocks I inherited. Instantly "Anchors Away" popped into my head. I can't wait to see what these knowledgeable quilters come up with. They always figure it out!

    The Name Has Been Found!

    We asked for help in finding the name of this block. It is called "The Flower Pot Quilt Block". It was found in the Barbara Brackman Book of Blocks. Thanks for all your input. We sort of liked the Anchor idea, as well.

    I can see the flowerpot but really like the anchor best.

    Cool. It sure was a draw between the flower pot and the anchor. Glad you found the pattern.
