15th Anniversary Quilt

I designed this quilt block as a gift to my students for the 15th anniversary of my shop many years ago.
It was included in my newsletter and I asked people to figure out the significance of the design.

Can you figure it out?

This block is a very traditional type of design. I had heard there is no such thing as an original symetrical block of this type. I researched all my quilt books and publications and did not find anything like this block so I can say with confidence it is an original block with a very traditional look.

I choose colors that were not common at the time I designed it, but the fabrics and block do make the quilt look quite traditional.

Enjoy working this puzzle.

Turned upside down it looks like many small figures, one per block.

how cool - 15 pieces for 15 years! So what did you name the block, Kay?

I was going to say 15 pieces too!
I find it sad that people say that there are no original symetrical pieced block patterns. So many believe it is a fact and never look for different ways to draw lines within a square, which means there are thousands of new blocks waiting to be found, and vwery few people are looking for them..
