That is a very pretty quilt, but I don't think I have seen that pattern before...

Yes, it is a beauty, I haven't seen this pattern before either, so I can't be of help. Perhaps the quilter designed it herself.

Just a suggestion, you could draft your pattern by just looking at the rows on the diagonal. One row would be all squares, and you could make the other row squares with half square triangles to form the pattern, rather than cutting & piecing those angles.

It's called a Wedding Ring quilt (as opposed to "Double" Wedding Ring...here's a link to a pattern:

The best I could find was this pattern on the last row called confetti

Wow, it's a nice one. I love authentic OLD quilts! It's a nice pattern, so I hope you find one that is exact.

Is each shape appliqued to a whole cloth? They don't look pieced, hard to tell from photo's. What size are the shapes?

I dont know the name of the pattern but it appears its a row of equal sized squares and a row of square, two triangles to make a square, square, two triangles and you would assemble the rows this way on a diagonal. I try to figure out things as I look at them sometimes I am right sometimes I am a mile off but having it right next to you I think you could lay out your pieces to match that one and then assemble as above. I have seen that pattern have you checked quilterscache.com?
