    Amma, take a closer look--I think they are squares not hexagons-- I think it would be easy to figure out the blocks. Anne

    I think that is just a rough pattern, but she is looking for hexagons :wink:

    I think the squares are just what she used to draw the pattern, but the actual quilt uses hexagons, from what she said in the beginning. It looks like Grandmother's Flower Basket, with a variation of the GFG design on the side.

    I believe the squares are just a drawing of the quilt layout, not the quilt itself. It's easier to draw squares than hexagons and the OP did say it was made out of hexs.

    heehee, same thinking, sorry!

    It looks like her photo is of graph paper with the squares colored like the quilt, NOT the actual quilt.

    If that is a graph of the pattern what else does she need?? She just has to start making the hex's. She only needs to figure out the size of the individual hex. Follow the pattern on the paper and she has her quilt pattern.

    Here some info about the original. Don't know if the pattern is available though. Shouldn't be too hard to figure it out. Seems like you already
    have the placement on paper.

    If you can't find the pattern why not copy off the block in you top and put them and the instructions onto paper for future reference.

    Many years ago the "cross stitch" quilts were in vogue. You take a cross stitch pattern and simple replace the Xs with a square. Tiny squares, about 1-1.5 inches. I've seen some beautiful quilts made that way if you have the patience. That is what her pic reminds me of!

    It looks like an Anne Orr quilt.
    She was a 1930's designer. You can Google her to see more.
    My dim recollection is that she was originally a needlepoint or cross-stitch designer and her patterns were adapted to quilts.

    I made a small one years ago, alot of work, but beautiful when completed.

    I would think the pattern would be just a graph, much like the picture you posted, so except for figureing out the hex size, your graph should work just fine. It is very pretty. Good luck finding the pattern, or using your graph if you don't find it. I have seen very similer quilts, but not a pattern. Hope you find it.

    I was going through my books and patterns looking for a pattern and I came across one that may be similar to the one you are looking for. I don't think it is exactly it.

    If interested in it, please let me know. Maybe we can make a deal.

    I see that you bought the quilt top. Did you realize that the hexagons are usually made individually by hand using the English paper piecing technique, and then they are sewn together by hand. Because of this, you may not be able to find a "pattern" more detailed than the drawing you already have, but there are many sites that give instructions for doing EPP. It is a very portable type of handwork, and this is one of the prettiest EPP designs I have seen. (And no, I haven't done any EPP, but it is on my list of things to try... someday.)
