Default Finished quilt with antique blocks

Just got back from longarmer..she did such a great job..this were among many old blocks given to me…seems like they all need to be finished…the piecing work is amazing…anyone know what this pattern might be? The patterns are wild..I set together with a navy grunge, since most of the prints are dark..the blocks may be 30 years old if not older

It looks like it could be a different arrangement of a Lozenge block or similar to Indian hatchet. Looks great whatever the pattern is!

Accuquilt calls the pieced units signature blocks. Yours are then set in a 9-patch.

Great quilt. You are lucky to have it.

My neighbor and I were talking about antique blocks/tops just the other day. We each have several that we always meant to hand quilt but never got around to it. She's starting to send them out to get longarmed. I may do the same. We're both hand quilting another top together right now (she is doing hers and I'm doing mine) but a lot of us know how long it takes and she must have 20 old tops!!
