    I'll bet it was a mistake and that's why it was discarded .

    I agree with jbud2

    It sure looks like a wine coaster to me - the round bottom of the wine glass stem fits into the center (the flaps go over the round part) and the "coaster" portion sticks out around it. Hope this helps.

    My guess is that it is a wine glass coaster that did not come out as the original person sewing it intended. I would put a wine glass in the center see if that is what it is.

    Wine glass coaster is my thought, also, once I saw the picture of it laying flat.

    Looks like someone made a fabric Cootie Catcher. You made them out of paper years ago to tell fortunes.

    To me it looks like a childhood game made from fabric rather than paper.

    When I was a child we had a paper game that liiked like that. fingers were put under the triangles and your partner would call out a number 1-4 and then the fingers were moved back and forth to that number. this wa repeated 3 times, flip the inside courner out and a message was displayed. a silly fun pass time for kids great memmories

    It might be a failed attempt at making an origami ornament or some kind of origami shape.

    I also think it is a cathredral window block. The first picture is how it goes with all of the points to the center. You then whip stitch the backs together of at least four of them and place a solid piece of fabric in the center, pull the edeges over it and hand stitch in place. It creates a circlular diamond of the fabric you put in there and has four dasiy shape petals around the outside. They didn't need to be quilted afterwords because of all of the layers of folds.

    It is the pattern piece of the catheral window block-my mom made a whole quilt with that pattern for my wedding gift from my folks 30 years ago. it its beautiful i wouldn't trade it for anything and plan to hand it down to my son or daughter when either one of them gets married.

    It seems to me that there are little pocket at all the corners. One time a received something like that and it was a bread roll holder for the table. I could fit 8 small rolls in it.
