    I just saw this quilt on eBay. I thought it was an interesting take on the snowball pattern. They are calling it "Indiana Puzzle." I've never heard it called that, have you? :wink:

    It's not a snowball. It's actually drunkard's path blocks but not set where they form a path.

    I was thinking drunkard's path as well. I have a bin with pieces I started 15 years ago that one day I might finish!

    Oh, good!! I thought I was wrong in my thinking that it wasn't a snowball like they stated.:roll: I do like the way they laid it out. It certainly gives a different look to the block. :wink: At first glance I actually thought it read Indian Puzzle. I even copied and saved it in a Word document with that title, then when I wrote this post and pasted the link, I noticed that it read Indiana. I'm such a goofus!!! :oops:

    Just googled Indiana Puzzle and got 2 different patterns just from sites on the first page. Neither was like this.

    Some ebay seller doesn't know his/her quilt patterns!

    Actually, many decades ago this block WAS called snowball.
    I have one in white and spring green print from the 20s-30s that makes me think of a late winter/early spring snow after the trees have begun to leaf out.

    It looks like a Drunkard's Path pattern to me.
