    LOL ~ that was my thought! I have surfed for thousands of patterns in my years of quilting, and have never seen this one either! not even parceled smaller into a 1/2 circle and small square for mini block... I hope someone can answer!

    That is a lovely pattern. And you have a beautiful or maybe handsome quilt inspector.

    Wow, that is a pretty quilt, love the scrappy colors.
    I have no idea what the name is but it sure is pretty and it looks hand quilted, ....is that "Baptist Fan" quilting design all over it?
    Maybe if you google "Baptist Fan" hand quilting from the 40s-60s you can come up with some type of information.

    Yes it is quilted with the Baptist Fan pattern. Tabby just took it over like she does anything new in the house. I sure hope someone can find this beautiful pattern.

    I thought maybe Ring Toss, and there are many variations to this pattern. It is close...but, no cigar. It is a beautiful quilt.

    I do not recognize this pattern either. It is obviously pieced, rather than appliqued. To reproduce the pattern, lay a block over a piece of paper on your ironing board, such as freezer paper. Poke through the seam lines with a fine pin. play connect the dots with a pen and cut out your pieces. Remember to add seam allowances.

    When you sew, remember that it is essentially a 9 patch. Your 4 corner pieces have inner and outer parts. Of course, the pattern you get will be slightly smaller than the original pattern was, due to shrinkage and quilting reducing the size.

    The original quilter was quite skilled to get such even blocks that connect so well. Do let us know if you find out more about the pattern.

    Well, it's not your run-of-the-mill 9 patch block.

    The more I look at the quilt the more impressive the maker's piecing skills. Every spot where something is supposed to match is dead on. Perfect.

    Was it machine or hand pieced?

    And she didn't have an AccuGo Cutter to cut perfectly matched pieces. Or a special foot to sew curves. Or any of the scores of notions we have today. ;-) ;-)

    Just skill.

    Which makes the finished product even more impressive.

    This is a very beautiful quilt. I own a quilt that my late husband's grandmother made for us in 1962 for our wedding gift Jan, 1963. I marveled at her quilting...of course...all by hand. I had no idea what the name of the pattern was...finally, some years later when I became involved in quilting, I purchased a book by Maggie Malone, called 5,500 quilt block designs. Alas, I located my quilt design...called 'Ozark Cobblestone'. Very appropriately named as we are Missourians and live in the Ozarks. As I have time, I will search this book to see if I can locate your quilt design. The book is only block designs and not the actual pattern dimensions. I'll see what I can do for you.

    Sure is pretty. I have never seen this pattern before. Good luck with the repair job. Looks daunting.

    I should have said that restoring will be an applique process.

    Are the arcs appliqued or set in? In one spot they look appliqued (red) but in another set in (blue-gray).

    I didn't find it in the digital Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Blocks so now I have to get off my butt and go downstairs to and look at real books.

    I was able to do some research on the quilt. The lady who gave it to me was given the quilt by a friend of hers in 2009 .at the age of 80, His mother owned the quilt before him .Aolso they lived in James,Georiga. That is all she knew about the family that owned the quilt. I did make a pattern off the quilt hopefully I can make one someday.
