I'm working on carefully repairing some of the wear on the stitching and applique. The only things I know for sure is that the quilt is at least 50 years old and was made in Ohio. Can anyone ID the pattern?

***An update in information! I've learned from a relative that the quilt was made approximately 80 years ago in Middletown, Ohio by Mary Elizabeth (Small) Booth. Still no idea of the pattern name or where she may have found it, but we're pretty sure that Mary Elizabeth wasn't the designer.

This may be an original design. i will look into my blocks books and see if it is listed. Only thing I might add would be to check with an antique quilt book or maybe APQS quilt restorer as to the best way to mend and determine the pattern used. I do know that any updates on fabric alter the date the quilt is valued at. The newer the fabric the newer the quilt and therefore the value would diminish. If you are serious about collecting you may want to consider this. Other than that....it is absolutely gorgeious and I , for one would love to have a copy of the pattern if you make one. Is that an eagle in the center?

Sandra, no it's all flowers. The blue ones are in 2 colors and measure 14" across. The smaller white ones are 10" across. The entire quilt is approximately 77 1/2" x 92" . The quilting is hard to see unless you download the pictures and scan around. It's a cornflower blue thread and the patterns are 8 sunbursts that meet with a sunflower-like pattern around the appliques. Unfortunately, there was no quilting done within the appliqued blocks and the batting's all wadded up in a few of those! I'll see what I can do about making a tracing and posting it.

Leslee downloaded the pic, the center bottom unit that needs repair...is what I wondered if was an eagle...can you determine what it may be? As to the quilting it is wonderful. Where/How did you come across this? Maybe there may be info you can find from them. If purchased @ antique shop there should be a record of the purchase and you can have them give your number to the party they purchased it from and request any info they may have. Even if it is from a family member you may be able to gleen something helpful. The devil may be in the details but you never know, you may find they may have kept the old sewing templates and/or design in with "grandma's" stuff.

Dear Leslee, in todays paper, The San Antonio Express and News there was an article about a lady that knows about old quilts. She is a quilt collector. My husband already put the paper out for recycleing so I can't get it for you. I believe her name was Anne Kovel. Maybe you can get the article through the internet. Good luck, it looks like a beautiful quilt. Estella
