Grandma's Crown of Thorns Quilt

This is another quilt that was in my grandmother's collection. We don't know who made it, as my grandmother didn't label anything. It's probably the next one I will get appraised, to see if it's worth keeping among other things.
It's a Crown of Thorns. All blocks look planned except this one. I guess the maker didn't have enough fabric to make this last one.
The back is a pretty purple plaid, wrapped to the front instead of a separate binding. That was typical of quilts made by my grandfather's mother, but then it was probably typical for a lot of quilt made years ago.
The rest of the blocks look like this one

it's a wonderful humble style quilt made by a family member . . .
the appraiser may not see ALL of it's real value.
of course it's worth keeping~!

Thank you. I've got so many of her quilts that I really don't have room to store them properly. Eventually I hope to pass them down to other family members.
