    Looking for pattern

    While looking through the books at joann's the other day I saw a quilt pattern that I really liked and of course I didn't get the book. Now I have an order that I could use the pattern for and can 't find the book again. It looked like it was rectangle pieces - one was horizontal and two were layed vertical to make the block. When I tried to cut the pieces all the same size (4 x 8) of course they didn't make even blocks. A fairly easy pattern but I can't figure what size to cut the pieces. hope my description is clear. Has anyone seen this pattern?

    If I'm visualizing correctly, you want a finished block that's 8 wide and 12 tall, with 3 fabrics in each, and each fabric patch the same size, with one rectangle horizontal on top and two vertical underneath? You would cut 3 patches 4 1/2 x 8 1/2, so that when sewn together, you have a 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 block before joining with others. I think there'd be several ways to make interesting visual patterns from lots of these blocks, identical in structure but with different (planned or scrappy) fabrics, especially if you staggered them. Well, you'd HAVE to stagger them, because they are rectangles, not squares. -- However, I may have your initial idea all wrong...

    That's exactly the way I did it using those same measurements but I think the blocks were square when the 3 rectangles were sewn together which is impossible which is why I'm trying to find the pattern book again or at least a picture of it. Guess that will teach me that if I like a pattern, buy it even if I don't have plans for it. The only way I can get the block to come out even is to cut one length 9 inches and use 3 below the horizontal 6 inches and all four are cut 3 ". i'm going to try another joann s tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

    Are you looking at the Split Rail Fence?

    Something like this? Do you remember anything about the book - who wrote it, what color it was, etc.?

    It's funny how we interpret things differently - after reading Cagey's description, I was positive this was the pattern she was looking for!

    It's kind of like that story about blind people describing an elephant, isn't it?

    And BTW... I love the quilt on the link you provided! Thanks for the heads up!
