    Hi all,

    I'm new and I don't have a block reference book, I borrowed one from the library, but I had to take it back weeks ago :( Anyway, I'm new to quilting and I stumbled upon The Quilt Index....swoon. I was there for hours, lol. I am in love with pinwheel quilts and came across a few quilts that I need help identifying the blocks. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Gina

    Aren't they? I just love them! There were several there that I was able to identify and find blocks for on the web, but can't find these unless I want to click on every single block in quilter's cache, LOL!!! I wish QC had images next to all their blocks, it would be alot easier.

    According to EQ7 the bottom two quilt blocks are:

    Road to Fortune and the other is kaleidoscope of the Maltese Cross.

    Well crap :) I guess they did mind me using the images.
    Okay, the quilts can be seen here:

    Thanks Bella Boo, I found the last two on Quilter's Cache from your identification skills! The Road to Fortune is called Wheel of Fortune on QC, as far as I can tell it's the right block. Found here: http://www.quilterscache.com/W/WheelofFortuneBlock.html and I though I didn't find a Kaliedoscope, I found a link for a maltese cross that looks pretty close at http://www.how-to-quilt.com/patterns/maltese-cross.pdf It looks a bit more square then the other quilt's blocks though. In the quilt, the sections look equal, whereas in the pdf pattern, the sections widths look unequal...but it could be a trick the color differences are playing on my eyes. I am going to keep looking around.

    Thank you so much!!!

    The first quilt's block is still unidentified.

    Thank you
