    this looks like a quilt I made called a lattice. I got the tute from a blog called "the Blue Chair". It went together quickly. I made mine with a white background (because that was what we had from donations of fabric) and the strips were all 2.5 X 10 scraps.

    KR is right on. The block is so simple that it looks complicated.

    It's a simple Scrappity Doo Dah block (among many other names this block has). Great designs from the same pattern block just by increasing the size of the middle strip. It s a free pattern from McCalls.

    It's tube quilting or "Chop Suey" Just set the blocks the same way.

    It's a variation of a stack n whack. Stack the 5" charms about 6 deep (as many as you can easily rotary cut without disturbing the placement of the stack. Cut in two places so you have the three pieces...then you spread the stacks apart..take one piece off the center strip stack, put it on the bottom of the stack....Now sew the three pieces back together, all the centers will be a different color than the two side pieces, they will match each other.

    Not sure that's what you are talking about...but that's how I'd do it..

I also did a Paint mockup of the pattern when 4 blocks are put together. Ignore the mismatched points Without a lot of waste, I'm not sure what to do... Thanks!

    I would make half square triangles, then add squares on the corners, as you would, if you were making a snowball block.

    The square on the right is what you get when cutting a triangle from a "tube" when you are making a tube-quilt.

    See the following links:

    The above link is neat and easy to follow. HOWEVER, She tells you to cut the third strip 4 inches wide. This is wrong.

    Have you seen the you tube tutorial by MissouriQuilt co. about tube quilt? You sew one strip the width of the widest half, the width of the desired fabric, then the two strips that will make the other half of the block the width of the fabric and then place the two together strips on the wide strip right sides together and sew both sides of the strip sets together and press to set seams and then cut them with a 45degree line on your ruler. I am not explaining this very well, I'm sorry and I don't know how to cut n paste the youtube address, but if you go to google and put youtube n then quilting videos missouriquiltco and it should pop up, or go to missouri quilt co website via google n check out the tutorials list theere. Sorry if I've confused everyone
