While the quilt pattern looks somewhat familiar, I don't have a name for you. However, you have a marvelous old quilt with beautiful hand quilting. Thanks for sharing.

You might even contact Eleanor Burns because she does several remakes of the Kansas City Star quilts.

I absolutely love this one. It's amazing how fast your to-do list can grow well beyond the amount of time you have.

Good job! You just saved me a lot of work. That is a really nice quilt and it is now on my TODO list. Thanks for showing it, and finding it!

Thanks again everyone. I took it to sewing group yesterday and we discussed it. Decided it has to have been quilted in the last 20 yrs because of the polyp batting. But the fabrics are obviously from several years ago. Was probably a top someone started and then someone else finished it. But, whatever it's history, I love it.
