Yes, that is the pattern on pinterest. I saw that on another link. And the fiberfantasies site was very interesting. Thanks for your interest.

I don't know the name of the pattern but it looks like it is from the 30's. Love it and all quilts like it.

Wow. I would call it a Great Beauty. I have several pieces from same period, just do not know what anonymous quilter was thinking when she left them all undone. This has inspired me to attempt piecing it together.

I want to give a Shout Out to the members of this Board, who can help track down names of quilt patterns. I followed the links posted, and was able to not only have the name of the pattern, but also where to locate it, YAAY!
I logged on to Amazon and just purchased the book "Quilts: Unfinished Quilts With New Endings" by Gyleen Fitzgerald, which is reported to have this pattern in it. I also went to paperpieces.com, and purchased the paper pattern there.
As I was marveling at my luck, I happened to pick up my local newspaper, describing the upcoming Sauder's Quilt Show (4/27-5/2) in Archbold, OH, and guess who is going to be there? Gyleen Fitzgerald! If it comes in time, I may see if I can get her to sign it, lol. Even if she doesn't, I can ask her about this pattern.

Yes, this is truly a great bunch of people! I know when I need an answer, most likely I'll find one here. Good luck getting your book signed! That would be awsome! Let us know if you get to ask about the quilt. Inquiring minds want to know. Bobbie
