    I have 52 of my grandmother's quilt tops and would like to know the names of the various patterns. What is the name of this pattern?

    Again, can't help with the name. But it's the same pattern as the one I already liked in the other thread. But the beautiful secondary pattern is even more visible in this one, as it is not scrappy.

    Lucky you, to have so many quilt tops from your grandmother - that's a wonderful inheritance.

    Is that a Capital "H" set on point? No, not on point but the letter is turned.
    I like the way the quilter has used the stripe.

    Wow! What a treasure to have 52 of your grandmother's tops! I have no idea what this one is, but it's pretty.

    Don't have the slightest idea on the real name, but I would be tempted to call it Love or Hugs & Kisses (X & O). Would be fun done in Valentine's fabric. Or wedding themed.

    hugs and kisses was my first guess, as well. when i googled hugs and kisses, i found many variations with that name. i got out my EQ and played... this is the block and layout from it for the quilt that pita2010 pictured. i hope this helps anyone who might want to make this quilt. it's lovely.

    That is so great! I want to make one now. It could be paper pieced, and whip up pretty quick! Thanks for doing the block & quilt draw up work.

    Don't know it, but I like it too. I tried to find it in Brackman, but don't see it.

    I decided to play with this as a 3 color pattern. Notice that on one, I cut the other corners. This simple pattern is rather flexible.
