A favorite quilt

Does anyone know the name of this quilt pattern?

I purchased this quilt for $5. at a Salvation Army store in 1993. What a steal huh?
The 8" blocks are made of wool, gabardine, velvet, and silk. Each circle is embroidered around, with a ladder stitch, each block is tied in the center of each diamond and each corner with red wool yarn .
The backing is a light weight wool.

I really enjoy displaying this quilt, it is quite a charmer.


  1. It almost looks like a cathedral window variation. Check with http://www.nequiltmuseum.org/ to see if they can help you identify the pattern.

  2. Thank you for referring Janet to the New England Quilt Museum. She got the answer to her question almost immediately. Our library has wonderful quilt research capabilities. Inquiries should be sent to Questions@NEQuiltMuseum.org. You don't have to live in New England to become a museum member. We loan books and videos by mail to anyone in the U. S. who joins the museum. And our volunteers do research for everyone whether they are members or not.
