Skill Level: Intermediate

Design Attribution: Could not locate

Note: A block consisting of 4 “bowtie” blocks joined together in a circle also goes by the name of Dumbell, which is attributed to Nancy Cabot, Chicago Tribune, 1933

The above block, known as the Dumbbell Quilt Block, is actually another coloring of the Swing-in-the-center Quilt Block. This particular coloring reveals a wrench design in the middle (similar to churn dash and Monkey Wrench).
