    Can you help me?

    image.jpg I need help figuring out the name of this block. This quiltvwas made by my grandmother several years before she passed away. My uncle is wanting to know the name of the block partern and we have no idea. Can anyone help? I know the picture isn’t the best, but it is all I have. Thanks! 6349B8E7-DEC1-4ED5-A33F-CA6D51857D10.jpeg

    Do you have a picture of the quilt? It might help to see it on the quilt, because what you 'see' as a block, may actually be a partial block where 4 blocks together make the design you are picturing. Plus it helps to see it in the actual quilt.
    Being creative is accepting the flaws as perfection

    I never heard of the album patch block, but looks like the Christian Cross block on point. At least according to "Illustrated Index to Traditional American Quilt Patterns"

    But as already said, many quilt blocks can have several names. Grandmother's Flower garden aka; flower garden, French bouquet, grandma's garden, honeycomb, job's trouble, Martha Washington's flower garden, mosaic, rainbow tile, rosette and/or spiderweb, pseudo officially is the very traditional English paper pieced hexagonal block.

    And a plain old 9-patch is also known as an Irish coin, not to be confused with the Irish chain which really in a way just another way to say 4 patch as that the only distinction between those and the 4 or 9 patch is they should be done in only 2 high contrasting colors.
