    Hi Everybody,

    I just acquired this quilt today from a yard sale and im trying to find out if anyone knows what the name of this pattern/block is?

    The gal at the yard sale where I picked it up thinks her grandmother made it. It is all hand sewn and feed sack was used on the majority of it.

    Thanks for the help!

    I was able to find 'Daisy Quilt" block from 1930's
    http://www.nwwone.org/world-war/worl...0601115657.jpg

    It is also very close to the "Oopsie Daisy" Pattern.

    I wonder if it is one from the Kansas City Star patterns.

    It is lovely and you were lucky to get it.

    What a great find. I cannot for the life of me understand why someone would put a quilt in a yardsale that was made by their Grandmother. I have one small(probably a lap quilt) blue and white one that my Grandmother hand quilted
    and I wouldn't part with it for the world. But a big congratulations to you for now it will get taken care of and loved at it should.
