radiating patchwork, two ways

This recent acquisition from an eBay seller in Texas caught my eye because it reminded me of another quilt in my collection.

The first quilt is a variation on the "Sunshine" block by Clara Stone around the turn of the century. The second is a pattern known as "The Thrifty Wife", although the quilt probably predates the 1939 publication of the pattern in the Kansas City Star. Similar effect, two different blocks. Radiating patchwork, two ways.
