    What is the name of the quilt behind jenny?

    Jenny Doan has a new video quilting tutorial posted and hanging behind her is a quilt. I called the shop and was told the quilt is an unknown pattern 'name', is an antique quilt from Jenny's private collection.

    Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

    It looks like a combination and alteration of the center block of the Dear Jane quilt (called Indianapolis, but I can't tell that this is relevant) and something called the hyacinth: http://hyacinthquiltdesigns.blogspot...ars-quilt.html
    The one behind Jenny looks more circular but with the four pointed stars between them. Hope this helps.

    It's a variation of "Rob Peter to Pay Paul". Interesting that the edge of the quilt ends with a half block then is bound on the curves. Very pretty.

    Found the templates for the variation. If you look at the pic of the template set in grey - it's the one on the top center.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    i think Patti has the right idea. Sue's link has a smooth curve. but the Jenny quilt has angles like Patti's link

    Here's another picture of a similar quilt - http://www.etsy.com/listing/11645343...-arkansas-star

    It's a kite pattern, probably with several names. Here's an EQ6 representation.

    I noticed Jenny is using what looks like a Brother 1500. Great machine.
    Got fabric?

    I thought it looked like a form of a snowball quilt. Her videos always look so easy. I agree, she is a very talented lady and I, too, enjoy her shows.

    I also thought it was a form of a snowball but was quilted in the middle of each snowball.

    If you google Vintage Snowball quilt pattern the third site down for an Etsy store has a very similar quilt. I think the quilting on the white blocks in Jenny's quilt make them prominent.

    To me it looks like 4 small drunkard's path blocks sewn together.

    a similar variation is found in Ruby McKim's 100 Patchwork patterns as Beautiful Star. Ruby's granddaughter has some of her patterns on a website about her or i have it if someone wants it. the difference from this is that there are small diamonds or triangles between points of the stars. If these were done same color as the setting squares then it would look the same as the video.

    I believe it's called Arkansas snowflake or hummingbird. You could check on quilterscache and find the block.

    Thank-you everyone for the replies, such a nice response. I asked when I called if it might be a future video tutorial and was told 'maybe'. I'm sure it would depend on how complicated a piece it would be to piece, I'm sure.

    Again, thank-you for your time in response to my question! Hugs to all!

    Link to the directions, but I think the quilting in Jenny's quilt makes it all the more wonderful!

    I have always known this block as the Arkansas Snowflake.
