    Does anyone know the name of this block

    I'm trying to find out the name of this block. I'm not a good artist at all, but this should help.
    I saw it on the Sewing With Nancy show,this morning. It was in the background of a segment on Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project and I would like to make one.
    I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
    Thanks

    Interesting block! You have 2 different angles going on, so I'm guessing there might be additional seams & it's paper pieced. In addition to this post, I would send an email to Sewing with Nancy. Be sure to include the program #.

    I am with Paper Princess, send an email to the show or Nancy herself.

    I think it looks like some sort of compass star, I searched and couldn't find anything remotely similar.

    Don't know the name of the block but this looks like it would require
    English Paper Piecing because of the angles.

    Do check with Nancy. I looked at this and concluded that it was probably a variant on the basic Lemoyne Star shape, with 4 45 degree diamonds and 4 triangles that are half that shape. With either paper piecing or templates, it should not be terribly hard to reproduce.

    Using the Morning Stars block from quilterscache.com you could easily get what you are looking for. Applique a circle in the center of each. There are templates included, and this could be done without paper piecing.

    Agree, shouldn't be hard to reprodyce. And I am thinking it is probably old enough to not worry about copyright infringement
