Small Applique Quilt In the Works

I saw a picture of a quilt pattern that had been in a magazine but was never able to find out what magazine.  Nor who the designer was.  I drew my own pattern.  The central part of the wall quilt is done and I have a triangle border in the works.  There will be more applique border after the triangles.  
If you happen to know what magazine the design was in, please let me know.  I saw a quilt picture in a Gwen Marston book that used the same block or at least it appeared to be the same.  The quilt she showed was not done by Gwen.  The maker had been inspired by an antique quilt.  I could not track down a quilt pattern made by this person or by Gwen Marston.

Time to stitch!

  6. You did an excellent job drawing up your own pattern! I am sorry but it does not look familiar to me. This is going to be a very pretty appliqued quilt! I love the quilt in your header photo too!

  12. The design might be from Piece O Cake Designs. I have some of their patterns and they look a lot like your design.

  15. Great work drafting your block - I think we should call it Karen's block in your honor! I'm sure our ancestors did this a lot and this is how they came up with such great patterns!!! Very well done!

  22. Not sure who you are thinking of but... it looks like a "Karen, the amazing applique artist that lives just up I-95 from me" :)

    It's a lovely piece you have created and very kind that you want to give credit to the original designer.
