Got these antique quilt squares from my friend, Shirley. She got them from a woman at her church. The woman said they were her mother's. Very old. Made of shirtings. Mostly hand sewn.
Who knows the name of this pattern?

Janie is putting this one together. Ray also assembled some of these from a bee block. Will have to search for a picture...
My grandmother (Sallie) has several of her mother's quilts that were day-to-day quilts, which have been well-used. This is an example of one of those. They were hand quilted using the Baptist Fan quilting pattern, which has quickly become one of my favorites. I bought a template to trace the lines to quilt these into my projects, but I've only used it once on a small placemat.
This quilt was made for my aunt when she was a baby. So soft & hand quilted. Love the embroidery. It belongs to my cousin & she has a 3 year old daughter.
