oh that is lovely. there is a phone number for the museum, perhaps a call to them might help. if its' an old quilt there most likely won't be a pattern.
you may end up drawing it out to size. lots of half square triangles and rectangles. if necessary, you can do it.
good luck.

Not sure what I'm missing but isn't that the schoolhouse block?

Here's one pattern. You can modify it a little to meet her needs.

Are you talking about the zig zag portion of this quilt? If you are there are several chevron quilt patterns out there free on the internet

It looks to me like that is a vintage quilt in a museum, so there probably is no pattern available. But as stated before, it would be a simple quilt to sketch out on graph paper and make your own pattern to follow. I believe that's what you're going to have to do. Use a pencil and ruler, follow the lines on the graph paper to keep yourself straight, and sketch what you see there, making any changes you want. (You may want the quilt longer and less square, to fit her bed better, for instance.) If you know roughly what size you need the finished quilt to be, based on that you can then assign a size to each square on the graph paper (one side of a square is an inch, or two inches, etc.). All you have to do then is add a half inch to the size of each square or rectangular piece (the quarter inch seam allowance) in both width and length, and you know how big to cut the pieces. Go for it!
By the way, welcome to the quilting board! I just noticed this is your first posting!

I agree, chances are you won't be able to find a pattern, but it should be very easy to draft your own.

Thanks, everyone! Yea, I knew it was a schoolhouse block but was hoping there was a pattern out there! I am VERY new to quilting so I was hoping to have something to follow but I will definitely try the graph paper and making my own
