I found it! "Friendship Garden". I took CraftyPat suggestion that it was a 1930s quilt, googled it and found it. Apparently a lady named Laura Wheeler is credited with the design in January 1940. It was published in several newspapers across the country. Also had the names Friendship Ring, Astor, and Sunflower. You can now purchase the design. I think the curved pieces would slow me down. Thanks everyone for your interest and help.

This one looks similar, but not quite:

My bet is it was one of the Kansas City Star newspaper patterns.

Glad you were able to find the name of the pattern and some info on it. I remember years ago seeing that pattern and loving it at the time. Thanks for sharing the beautiful quilt.

Hmm, looks like a variation of Dresden plate or GFD with little pieces put on corners to give the secondary design...whatever it is, it is truly a treasure.....

I was stunned that someone wouldn't want to keep such a pretty quilt.

Where can one purchase the design? I've googled it and come up empty-handed.

I think it was paperpieces.com. They have a lot of English paper piecing stuff. I hope this is right.
