    Does anyone know the name of the center block in the top row?

    If you go to this site you will see a quilt pattern by Marti Mitchell. I'm wondering what the name of the center block in the top row is? Is there somewhere I can locate just that block pattern?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    I think it is Snail's Trail. Here is a link to the directions http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpa...ails_trail.htm

    Thanks Patty, I looked that up but it just looked different to me. That's why I asked about it. I think the snail is fatter on the Northcott site???LOL (or maybe the colors have me fooled)

    It does look similar to Monkey wrench or Snail Trails but a little different. Time to break out the graph paper unless someone else has seen it.

    Here's another view with magnification. Still seems rather distorted, I can't tell what is in the center of that block (located at the bottom center in this picture). However, it seems to me they tapered the ends of the blocks with triangles instead of the traditional square blocks.

    Thanks Peggi, It is really unique. I've seen a lot of blocks because I love to look at different kinds of blocks but this one I'd love to see clearer and better. It almost looks like the head of a wrench.

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    it looks like snail trail to me with an extra triangle added to each side in the sashing. Each quarter of the block is done in a different color.

    I think it is a snails tail, with a varied fabric placement. It becomes distorted when I enlarge it, does someone have EQ7 who may be willing to design it. I tried to replicate on my EQ7, but got frustrated (very easy level of frustration here).
