need help identifying this quilt pattern


I'm flying high tonight....today I stopped at a thrift store and found
this older quilt for $25. It's big, full size,I think, with machine
piecing and then hand quilted in a very small 1/2" grid pattern in the
lighter sections and echo quilted around the shapes. Does anyone know
the pattern name for this? Any ideas about the age of it? Some of the
flower petals are seersucker fabric, so I'm thinking 1950's-60's. The
back fabric is the same little tiny blue floral on a dark tan/brown
fabric. Handstitched binding also. Anyway, I'm so thrilled to find
such a bargain. Donna

Donna, the picture was a little blury, but if you will send the quilt to me I promise to search through my quilt books until I am sure I find the correct pattern, and then I will let you know! Barbara in SC

I KNOW you're not going to trust Barbara but as soon as I have my eyes fixed you can send it to me. What a beauty! I'll search quilt pattern books until I'm absolutely certain the name of the pattern. So happy for you, Polly
"Taria" Excellent beg there. It is a wonderful quilt. What fun to find a treasure.

Well done! Reminds me a bit of a dahlia pattern. I really like the 4-patch sashing strips. Roberta in D

That's beautiful. I'm sure I've seen that pattern somewhere, but the name escapes me. And Barbara Brackman's book is somewhere in my basement chaos.
So I guess I'm no help.

Oh, this one's easy; it's called Beautiful... aka Pretty. ;-D

...the sun does burst into noonday around here.
Whatever you call it, you lucked out; congrats!
