    What quilt block is this?

    My daughter's friend has a quilt made by her Gramma and I would like to make one. Does anyone know what this quilt block is or where I may be able to find it? Thanks

    No name for you but it is a wonderful pattern. I like the way the four- pointed star is repeated as a large and small feature.

    Hope someone comes up with a name.

    In the EQ add on, Block Base by Barbara Brackman, it is labeled as Block #3947 OCS/Wheeler. I Googled it online and couldn't find any other name for it.

    You could go to Barbara Brackman’s blog and ask her. It may be in one of her books.

    You could probably just applique those diamonds, then " snowball" the blocks ��

    Looks like the Storm at Sea quilt to me. One of my students is working on one now in Blue and teal with a white background.

    All I see is a block s labelled on 4 corners and the diamond rd are applauded onto body of each block. A storm at sea design has more seams to make the pattern

    I am trying to "see" the seams to figure out the real block. it may not be where the quilting "seams" are. interesting.

    It's beautiful... and no doubt hand pieced. Wish I could help with a name but I've never seen it before now.

    Thanks everyone. My first thought was Storm At Sea also but it's different. And Ube, I didn't even notice the second star before. My sister found one in Dear Jane, think it was called Wildfire or Fireflower.....it may be adaptable.
    I was looking for an easy way so I think I will just forget about it and go on to my next project....the wall hanging swap....my favorite!

    Apparently its from the 1930s, a Canadian Laura Wheeler designed it; she started in 1928 designing quilts. I got several hits in Google looking for quilt pattern "Wheeler". Did not find it in my Blockbase or Kansas City Star vintage patterns. Hope this helps.

    Brackman's book calls it "Star" and "Star of the East" -- OCS/Wheeler being sources.
