    Well...it looks like a combo of a 9 patch and a snow-ball. It is cute!

    9 patch and snowballs - the cream is the "snowball" corners and the "X" part of the 9-patch.

    Whatever it is, its pretty! I do see the nine patches and I think the other is the snowball. Mixed the way they are, it looks awesome.

    What a lovely quilt!
    Do you know anything about it's story?

    ... when you look at the way the seams are puffed ... it almost looks like the large colours and background are put together in a simple block form. And then the 9Ps added after, looking as though they are appliqued on.

    And agreed ... snowballs with 9Ps would do the job with all set on point.

    There are no Y intersections on this quilt. It is all straight seams and just sewing squares. The snowball block can easily be done putting a square in each corner and sewing on the diagonal. There is also a bit of applique in the borders.

    More than likely it is just lack of good pressing during the construction. If the maker did assemble it the way you suggest that made it a ton more work than it needed to be. The same look can definitely be achieved by alternating a simple 9 patch a with a simple snowball. The only applique I see are the leaf shapes in the border that overlap on to the blocks along the outer edge.

    I agree, snowball and 9 patch. The design comes from the placement of fabrics. Very pretty.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Funny, I read this thread, went to draw it up, and when I got back a couple minutes later - there was the answer already! But, anywhere here is the drawing.

    it looks like it was set on point. or at least the blocks are going across the quilt in the photo. i agree, nine patches and snow ball blocks (corner triangles match the light background in the nine patch blocks. then some "petals" are appliqued on the quilt.

    I believe it is a snowball/9 patch and the reason you don't recognize it is that it appears in the picture to be on point. Cock your head around a little and I think you will see it

    I agree with the others, 9 patch and snowballs. What I really like is the chicken dish, I collect chicken dishes like that and also chicken candy dishes.

    It's a thicker batting than we are accustomed to seeing and not well pressed before quilting. It may be hand quilted and there seems to be buttons in the center where the blocks come together. I have a SB and 9P waiting for binding for a prayer quilt and another on the machine being quilted. That one does look different photographed from an angle.

    Well thanks so much quiltnan and grammatjr for those. I was just yesterday thinking about this pattern and wondering about color placements , and i think this post by rebbeca helped me visualize better. isnt this pattern just so different depending on how you place light and dark. I had done a googgle search and most of the quilts with this pattern use a light for the snowball. My plan was to use a dark like this, and now I am more confident my plan would work!
