I cannot believe this great design is NOT in my Encyclopedia of
Pieced Quilt Patterns---or BlockBase, the digitized version.
Five years ago Lori Nicholas Frank posted a circa 1950 example on Quilts Vintage & Antique.
"OK, I give up! Does anyone know this pattern name?"
Nobody has commented with a name.
I've been looking for the published source ever since but no luck.
I give up too.
So I drew it up in BlockBase & Electric Quilt 8
It looks very mid-century what with the prints, the scrappy look and
the clever repeat.
I'll give it a number BlockBase# 2676.5
And name it Carousel as it goes around and round and you don't have to flip any pieces.
Two sheets for a 12" Finished Block
All templates, all curves.
You know it had to be a published pattern....
