I know it as "True Lover's Knot". It's also called "Endless Chain", and "Rose Dream".
I know it as Lover's Knot as well. Beautiful quilt.
This quilt caught my eye because of the "borrow from Peter to pay Paul" use of the fabrics. It just gives such a vintage look to the quilt. But when I tried googling "Lover's Knot", "True Lover's Knot" and "Endless Chain" (to look at block construction), I came up with strip type blocks...not with a melon in the block center as this quilt has.
"Rose Dream" was the only name that came up (for me) with the same type of block.
Does anyone have a machine method of piecing this block? Maybe constructing the block background and then appliqueing the melon on the center??? Just an idea...I'm always trying to find the "easiest" way to do these blocks...lol!
google images has it as a lovers knot, along with a whole bunch of other patterns. it was interesting to see the center oval in several different sizes in the block.
was this hand pieced, the shapes are sure nice and even.
i don't know how the easiest way to approach this would be, donna. i would be inclined to hand piece if i attempted it. a good project for evenings in front of the tv

very pretty pattern.
I found this one on quiltblocklibrary.com under true lover's knot. The picture at this site shows the four blocks in the middle with the four larger blocks with the almond shape around it making up the whole block. Its's the same pattern.
I know it as true lover's knot, as well. It's actually pretty eay to piece. The corner squares are put on the corner arcs first and then they are sewn together like Drunkards Path blocks. Don't let the curves intimidate you. they aren't that hard, especially when they are shallow like this. I actually have more trouble with set-in seams. Just take your time and it'll go together fast! LOL
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
