    Name this block

    I got some vintage blocks recently and I don't know the name of the block. You will see at the bottom of the picture with the wedge that connects the blocks (which is in pink).

    That is an older block and according to a book I have on old quilt blocks by Jan Halgrimson it's called "Baily Nine Patch. I'm sure it's also known by other names as were many of the older blocks.

    That's the name I've always known it by. But I have heard it called Glorified Nine Patch, too. It makes a gorgeous quilt!

    I believe it is a curved 9-patch, but you could go to qulterscache.com where you could identify the block. Lucky you to have acquired the vintage blocks.

    dunster, glorified 9-patch, that is what my blocks are called. Mine are from the book by Sharlene Jorgansen. My blocks are in a pizza box waiting for me to finish them, some 15 years later.**

    Have never seen this block, but thanks for sharing it and also thanks to NanaC for posting the tut. I have now added it in my favorites. Hope to make it someday. Along with the other million I plan to make.
