Illustrated in "Old Patchwork Quilts" by Ruth E. Finley (p.112). Four red triangles have white triangles in their centers that point towards the corners. They all stem from a center octagon of yellow and brown patterned fabric. White triangles fill in the corners and half ovals of the patterned fabric fill in the sides.
