strange symmetry

This 1970s polyester double knit quilt from California has a strange sense of symmetry. It could be called a one-patch or a nine-patch variation, but it has the effect of a geometric medallion. If you look at it as a nine-patch, the blocks do not seem symmetrical. But the mirror image placement of these asymmetrical blocks creates an overall symmetry. The quilt also includes some interesting fabrics.
