Another recent study pattern is Caesar's Crown- an intricate pattern, not for the faint of heart. Most of the early versions are done by hand curved piecing NOT applique.
And while most signature album blocks are made with simple pieced blocks (Baltimore Album style not withstanding), this difficult pattern had some popularity as a signature album.
The ownership block: Mary A Bankis (or Banks) the owner of this quilt. 1851. Maia(?)
Another signature Caesar's Crown from SE Pennsylvania dated 1851
Another colorful version without signatures
And finally a version from about 100 years later - also a signature quilt
