BEJEWELED SCRAPS

Is the title of this article in "Quilt" magazine dated Spring of 1990. I just loved the title, had to share. Oh yes, this magazine was $3.90 at that time.

Then, can you guess the name of this block? If you can, there will be a fat quarter in store for you. I know, it is not much but my postal bill is going to be outrageous.

I have finally begun to like scrappy quilts... how about "Whirligig Hexagon" for the block name?

And I like your new look! ...Karen

I have no clue what that is called, but I have a quilt on my bed made with those blocks! (Was this block on the cover of the magazine? Then that's the pattern! Made around 1996.)

Oh I don't know... my guess is...
Grandmothers Dutch Windmill.

I think it's like a six point pinwheel. But whirlygig is much cuter.

In 5500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone, it's listed as Texas Trellis, Maple Leaf, Whirligig, Whirling Hexagons and Whirling Triangles. I also found it listed as Kansas Twister, when I searched for Texas Trellis on the web.
