    Can you ID this pattern?

    This quilt was made for me in the late 60's by my husband's great aunt in California. She made it quilt as you go while she was watching soap operas. It looks like the center was hand pieced and then appliquéd to the block. She quilted it in many, many different patterns by hand so that when I had time to make quilts I would have a lot of quilting patterns. I have looked apt hundreds of quilt patterns an have not found this one.

      Is it possible that it was totally unique, made up by herself? It really is an amazing and charming pattern.

        I was thinking the same thing..that she created it herself. It's beautiful! It looks like 5 point stars around a circle with an added star in the center. I've never seen a quilt with this pattern but it sure is nice.

              I was looking at the red block and it looks appliqued. Is it?

                    It looks like a variation of the Seven Sisters quilt block pattern.

                      That is one gorgeous quilt. You are very lucky lady to have an aunt who gave you this labor of love. Maybe Jenny can look at your quilt and come up with a tutorial to make it.

                        Yes pieced and then appliqued to a white block and then quilted and then sewn together on the front and then turned under on the back which is red gingham and stitched together.

                            It is pieced and then appliqued to a square. Then Hand quilted and the blocks are then Quilt As You go joining on front and then putting seams together on back and hand stitching together.

                              It looks to be pieced and then appliquéd to a block. Hope this goes through as I haven't been able to reply.
