    I don't know the name, but it is all hand pieced and quilted, and clearly a scrap quilt. some of the printed fabric are partial dresden plates, some squares, some strips, then all cut and place in the block with the 1/4 circles that make the full circle. The quilting is as magnificient as the piecing!

    It is such a memorial to his mother and grandmother that he has passed along these wonderful keepsakes to someone that will appreciate them. This one is just wonderful a very talented quilter made this it is evident by this photo.

    Thank you for the picture and for adding a label commemorating this lovely woman and her work. Labels are so important.

    What a wonderful gift! Just a thought - you might want to make additional labels so each quilt he is passing on will have his mom's info.
