    Help! Do you know the name of this pattern?

    Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for this quilt? It was available on Craftsy.com, but is no longer available. My daughter posted this on her pinterest wall, and I would like to make it for her. Any help would be appreciated.

    I remember seeing it as "French Twist" in Quilters Newsletter ca. 2004-2005.

    Same idea as the quilt in Qbee's post.

    It's essentially a charm quilt in that it's only ONE shape - you can make it with mylar template, freezer paper, your choice.
    The different fabrics - two or three per block - are placed on a background square (the 4th color).
    Machine applique, needle turn, whatever you want.

    IIRC, the French Twist name was because the author (a well know quilter) used their collection of French fabrics acquired during a trip to Paris.


    eta:
    See Susan Briscoe's reply to this blogpost for more info. Seems it was April 2004. My memory isn't as pathetic as I thought.

    Also, a link to an ARCO template - http://www.ardcotemplates.com/yyw.shtml
    You can trace the shape and them make it any size you want.

    I know it as "Yin Yang". Google: https://www.google.com/search?q=yin+...A6rIiwLt9YH4Aw

    Linda Franz has Inklingo shapes and a tutorial for sewing the curves here:http://www.lindafranz.com/blog/how-t...s-in-yin-yang/

    Debra Wagner's book "All Quilt Blocks Are Not Square" has the template for a 9" block. It's a good book, and there are used copies from $1.83 up at Amazon. I thought once I was going to make enough blocks in yellow and blue for a quilt, but didn't particularly enjoy putting the first one together so changed my mind. Don't know where that block is, but found the template still in my book.
