    One of the vintage quilts I am repairing is this pattern. It was made in the 40's-50's. I cannot find this pattern anywhere. We like to know the names of all our quilts.

    The quilt is done with English paper piecing. I don't know if this is the original name for the pattern, but one site sells it as Star Bouquet.

    Thank you. That does look like the pattern. I had never heard of paper piecing until I started looking for things on the internet. I know for sure this was not paper pieced as I have the cardboard pattern my Daddy made for my Grannie to cut the quilt pieces. Star Bouquet sounds like a nice name for this quilt.

    My grandma called it a Garden Star. But Star Bouquet is good too.

    English paper piecing is not the same as "regular" paper piecing. It does use cardboard or other stiff paper and the fabric is folded around the paper and hand stitched. There is a tutorial on this board on how to do it.

    If you go to RedPepperQuilts (http://www.redpepperquilts.com/) you will see a beautiful example and it is referred to as the Texas Star (by Sandra Boyle) on that blog. Here is a pic. It was shown in Melbourne at the http://www.craftfair.com.au/Melbourne2010/

    Whatever it is, I like it. When (and if) I try EPP this may be the pattern I use.

    That is a beautiful quilt!
    The old style fabrics are awesome...but the newer scrappy one just stole my heart! Thanks for sharing the link, and I am glad that you found the name of your quilt! Good luck with the repair!
