Thanks everyone for your interest and help.

It's also listed in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia as block #3597. What a beautiful quilt to rescue!

That's beautiful quilt, and not one for a beginning quilter. You really do have a treasure there. Glad you found the name of the pattern.

WOW, what a find. Thanks for giving it a good home and seeking information about it. Too sad it was in a thrift store and not a cherished possession in a family member's home.

What a wonderful vintage quilt! I really like that pattern as I have not seen it before. I bet we could simplify the piecing. And I definitely recognize some of those 40's fabrics...I have quilts my grandma made in that era.

My Grandma had a quilt similar to this. She called hers Josephs Coat of Many Colors, but that's just what she called it. What ever the name of your quilt is, it is beautiful. So glad you found such a treasure.
