    Need help identifying quilt patterns

    Found 3 quilts, 1 quilt top, and 1 grouping of quilt squares at an estate sale today. I'm a novice collector and quilt lover. Can you help identify the patterns pictured?

    The third one looks sort of like a variation of the Friendship Basket shown here:

    The second one is Carpenter's Wheel, not star.

    I agree with the other names.

    The first and third ones I've never seen before, wondering if maybe they're originals or one-offs.

    My Mother and her sister (my aunt) each made a Southern Belle in the early 30's (before 1936) and the main colors are lavender and yellow. They were identical. I have one and my niece has the other. They did not have much money so my guess they were from the newspaper or a women's magazine. Both are entirely hand made -- no machine was available.

    I only knew the pink one as Drunkard's Path and the l have a pattern for the Southern Belle one. It looks like these blocks and quilts were made with some kind of pattern that would come from a weekly newspaper or something like that. I just remember my grandma would love to make quilts from patterns that came from a newspaper. You sure were lucky to find these gems.

    I have the Southern Bell from my Mothers 1930's patterns. She also had one she called Flower Basket that looks like the one you have. I believe she got that one from a newspaper that printed weekly quilting patterns in the 30's and 40's.
