    I honestly don't know if it has a real name. These are just half square triangle blocks laid in a diamond pattern.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I'm not sure it has a particular name, but is made from Half Square Triangles (HSQ). Check out this site for more info:

    If it were log cabin blocks, it would be barn raising. I assume the same for the HST.

    I think it's the layout that's called barn raising.

    I do not know the name but the pattern is beautiful. Hope you are able to find it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I don't think the quilt itself has an official name. It's simply HSTs arranged in a "barn raising" layout.

    Here's the original post if you'd like to read what the quilter said about it.

    Thanks for your help. What I'm trying to do is figure out how much of each color fabric to buy. If I'm making a queen at 90 x 100, with ten inch blocks and using four colors alternating, would 2 yards of each color be enough?
