These pictures are of a quilt that my aunt made for my sister. She started the top when my mom was pregnant with my sister. (Sister was born in 1952) She either quilted it herself, or had someone hand quilt it for her and gave it to my sister for her high school graduation.
The white petals are gathered at the flower center and are puffy. The petals and the flower centers are appliqued. That's all I know about it except that it is a fabulous quilt.

My sister would like to know the name of the pattern. Anyone know?

I think because when you see it in person it is just wonderful. I saw one in a antique store just the top had not been quilted. I so wish i had bought it i know i will never make one. they are beautiful

Nancy,
I notice that you're from Missouri. This quilt was made near Potosi, Missouri, where my aunt lived. Small world.

Kind of looks like one my grandmother made years ago. I want to say around 1960-ish.

It's mine now :)
