Antique Orphan Blocks

My Mother's Day present (which I chose for myself) was a few dozen quilt blocks, all very old.  I love checking out the different fabrics and finding patterns that don't appear in the books or BlockBase.  Here are a few of my current favourites.

Eight point star, excellent workmanship and a few squares pieced from smaller squares.

Another star with the last of the brown striped fabric

9 patch, with an interesting brown stripe and purple on black.

Another 9 patch - Fireside Visitor / Arrow / Broken Dish / London Roads

Same block, different light and dark

9 patchwork - some sort of Snowball?

Autograph Block in pastels

Spot the difference
