Q re quilt pattern names
A while back someone mentioned working on a "Calypso" pattern. I didn't recognize that name so I looked it up and found 3 different designs. Okay, that happens, it's just the reverse of having several names for one design. But now I keep thinking about pattern names.
The quilt I'm presently working on uses a variation of the 4-patch+square in combo with a sashed block. I learned it about 60 years ago from the woman who taught me to quilt; who called it "Square Dancers". I've continued to call it that even though I rarely use the gingham checks she was so fond of. Searching by name finds many designs called Square Dance but none are even remotely like her pattern. i've gone through all the books available in our library system (I stopped counting after 500) and still no luck.
Any other ideas on how to find the name for specific pattern?
