    Name of old quilt squares

    Would anyone recognize this pattern? The quilter machine pieced the 9-patch and then hand sewed the melon piece into them. She did a nice job. Would really like to find the name. Thanks, I know someone can help me. Bobbie

    I think it is the Glorified 9 patch. Google Glorified 9 patch and you will get several variations. Like you said, she added melons between them. Some make a block with 1/2 melons.

    Pics I have seen have been captioned as glorified 9-patch. The work IS beautiful!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
