    Can you name this pattern?

    I have no idea who made this quilt or pattern, but I LOVE the pattern. Making it will give me another justification for purchasing a 3" strip die to use on my AccuQuilt cutter.

    Can anyone help me name it?

    I've never seen it before.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    That looks like the description I heard of a quilt called "Garden of David" or "Milk & Honey". I've never been able to find it in a book or online. About 10 years ago I was traveling for work, and ended up spending a very long afternoon in a small airport in New Jersey. A very nice lady and I started talking about hand crafts & quilting, we were both crocheting since post 9/11 knitting needles weren't allowed back yet. We were talking about quilts previous generations has made, and she described that quilt or something very similar to it, as a quilt her mother did as a memorial quilt after WWII. Although inside the Star of David she had embroidered the names of family and friends who didn't make it through the war. She called it the "Jewish version of an English Garden" since it was all applique and hand piecing. I loved the idea of it, as I was working for a Jewish family and was learning about all things Judaica, so I wrote about it in my quilting idea book and I've looked for years and never found a reference for it or a picture! I would to know more or what it's real name is!!!

    If you found this on Pinterest, was there a link below the picture of this? Clicking on the picture while in Pinterest may give more info also.

    Similar idea to the Celtic Twist except that it is a square & this a triangle base. http://www.mccallsquilting.com/patte...html?idx=13782

    That's a pretty design, but look at all the partial seams it would take to make it! You can see that the person who made this one was having trouble getting them to come out right. It would be a terribly difficult quilt to make.

    Thank you so much! That was fast.

    I'm curious. . . what steps did you go through to find the answer? I didn't know what to google to pull it up and the person who posted it on pinterest didn't post to a source, just the image.

    Now that I know who to give credit for the inspiration, I'm going to redraft my own version without Y-seems.

    I won't be able to post a tutorial with pictures though, because I'm garbage at cutting with a rotary cutter for long seems and I don't have a 3" strip die for my cutter. Around that size I just have 2.5" and 3.5" strips which doesn't match my hexegon sides. I'll be purchasing the 3" die when I see the next decent sale.

    But don't worry, you won't have to have the AccuQuilt cutter to do it. I'll have cutting instructions for a rotary cutter. I'm just rotary cutter challenged.

    I went to the pinterest page, found the "originally posted by" link. There, there were some comments, one of which (conveniently) said "what pattern is this". The oiriginal poster had replied, with the link I gave. The challenge was figuring out how to find the true source of the picture on pinterest.

    Of course, you didn't help me because you only posted a link to the pic, not an actual pinterest page. I had to google image to get that (drag your photo into the image.google.com search bar).

    Milk & Honey

    It's a really, really rough drawing. . . but I wanted to go ahead and share how I'd sew this with the fewest number of Y-seems possible.


    P.S. I really liked the name Milk & Honey as mentioned by Shana in her post, so I've dubbed my version of the quilt that.

    Cool. What about going one further, and sewing half-hexagons in the center section? That would eliminate all the Y-seams I think. Or split the coloured half-hexies into a diamond and triangle, and you'd be able to make large diamonds from hexie + 2 triangles and center section wouldn't have any y-seams.

    That's exactly where I'm headed. Just had to stop and play with my daughter.

    I think Julie Herman has a quilt pattern like this and she has the hex ruler for it. Looks easier to make.

    http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2012/09...-half-hex.html

    Missouri Star Quilt Company has the pattern. http://www.missouriquiltco.com/pretz...-patterns.html

    There is a free template pattern here: http://www.americanjane.com/products/AJP216_p4.pdf

    I was just looking through old quilt mags and found the pattern in The Quilter, January 2001. They called it Twisting the Night Away by Wanda B Ingram. PM me and I will send you the Magazine.
