    In your opinion, what would this block pattern be? The picture is poor and doesn't show the block well, but it is the only picture I have. This quilt was stolen from me in the late 1980's and was made by my father's mother. She passed in the early 1940's. The sashing was light blue, the setting blocks and binding were pink, the backing was white, cotton batting.

    Ignore the person and the room and try to visualize the quilt if you can. It is difficult. Sorry.

    It looks like a honeycomb set 4 to a block

    Is there any way you could take a picture of part of the quilt and post it?
    I really can't tell from this one. But it's a cute pic :)

    I agree. You can see the "X" formed in the block by her knee.

    I no longer have the quilt. It was stolen from me in the late 1980's and probably sold to an antique place in Gulfport, MS. I will check on your honeycomb idea. I was thinking Kansas City Dugout block maybe. Except instead of putting the blocks together side by side, she separated them with sashing. That is a double bed, the quilt is on and it came down pretty far on the sides so I am thinking maybe 5 blocks across plus a 3 or 4 inch sashing, using maybe a 12 inch block. Have to try it out on paper. This is a new project and I am wanting to duplicate this as closely as possible.

    I have been looking for a long time for the right shade of light blue and pink. The solids for 1930's colors are too dark.

    It looks like the lattice quilt block to me.

    Here's one.

    Having said that, I think Ripped with Scotch is right. Looks more like
    the signature block.

    But still, I liked this block and quilt. Thanks. Will keep in mind for future.

    I think you are right. This does indeed look more like it than the Kansas Dugout although they were similar. And the size seems appropriate too.

    Big thanks!!!

    It looks like 4 Indian Hatchet blocks put together. I have made the single IH block. Or some books call it a signature block.

    Yes!! I think you guys are all wonderful. This looks just right to me with appropriate sashing and cornerstones...this will do just fine.

    Another reason I am certain this is it, but I don't have a picture to show you....there was another quilt done in a bubble gum pink, medium green with plain parts in the centers and signatures of all the church people were embroidered on them. This quilt I have restored and given to my brother. I don't know if he kept it or not.

    Both quilts had been given to my parents when they married.

    Thanks a bunch!!

    It looks like Indian Hatchet with the blocks pointing to the center to form the X's.
