    Isn't it some type of lily blocks? "North Carolina Lily" maybe? I sure do like this quilt, don't you? And I'm so glad it's in a home where it can be loved & appreciated!

    Susanb, no My husband and I quilted it on longarm with design board. I know it should have been handquilted, but I'm 83 and DH is 85. It was all we could do. I have another one older than this that my Mothers sister made and she was killed in a 1925 tornado, so I know it is a little older. I am going to handquilt it! PS Susan I'm sorry, YES it was handpieced.

    This quilt was so thin and some of it was muslin, very thin. I had to mend several places to keep it together. But I love it.

    That is beautiful, it reminds me of a pattern of Eleanor Burns ice cream cone block, but this is so unusual..I love it.
