Default Identify this quilt, please.

I purchased this old quilt in a thrift store and would like to know the name of the pattern. It has some soiled places on it, but not bad shape. It's hand pieced and hand quilted, there is no binding. I've looked in my books and other places and can't find it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Bobbie

Wow! What a beauty! I've searched Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, but did not find this one. There are similar blocks based on an Octagon, from KC Star, which published patterns in newspapers. One thing that makes this very interesting is the large Center, which looks to be one third the size of the block (horizontal or vertical measure. Most Dresden patterns use a smaller center circle with longer blades. This is a treasure. Thanks for showing us.

It sure is a beauty. Can't help with the name. It took me a couple years finding the name of one of my antique quilts. Keep looking.

I'm no use to you either but I really like the quilt. I haven't been quilting long but I know I've never seen that pattern.
You have something special IMO.

I have seen a quilt done in that pattern a long time ago. I believe done by my DGM. Back then she and my DM got a lot of the patterns from the news paper. I don't know the name of the pattern but would be from the 30's I believe.

I don't know if this helps or not.
There are several books out featuring patterns from the 1930s and from the Kansas City Star. The Kansas City Star used to print quilt patterns from roughly the 30s thru the 50s. I wouldn't be surprised if the pattern was in one of their papers and possibly in one of the books that are out.
