Got the quilt at a flea market over the weekend..30 blocks 10x10..all hand pieced..then someone who had a machine added the sashing..I would like to wash it..either before I remove the block..and then do the blocks justice in a new top..have not been able to find the name of this block-

Darn, I love naming blocks but I'm completely blank on this one! In fact I've never seen it.

by seeing these two blocks side by side do you think that they were meant to be sewn together with NO sashing?

Love the block, but would not wash until it has been put together the way you really want it, get it quilted, then bound.
