    I got this quilt top at a moving sale last week. All hand pieced and hope to get the maker's info to add to the label, but I'm not sure what the block name is. Any help will be appreciated.

    My book calls the block: Odd Scraps Patchwork

    Also here's a breakdown of how it's put together:

    Thanks all for the block names. I think I'll add them to the label too!

    "5,500 Quilt Block Designs", by Maggie Malone has it as Crown of Thorns, Georgetown Circle, & Memory Wreath.
    Hope that helps.

    Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns calls it:
    Old Scraps Patchwork
    Mill Wheel
    English Wedding Ring
    Vice President's Block
    Old Fashioned Wedding Ring

    What ever it is called.... It's pretty. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

    thank you again all for your replies to my query. After seeing the name Crown of Thorns, that is one I have heard before. Maybe if the maker contacts me I can ask if they know what they thought it was.
