    Need help finding a particular Sashing pattern

    I found this quilt at a local quilt shop. I love the sashing that was used, however the shop said that they have no clue who made it or what it is called since the quilt was a donation. They were very kind about allowing me to take a picture so I was wondering if you lovely people could help me out. I can always pull out the graph paper and do the lay out myself, but I figure if someone happens to know the name or a source for it already in pattern form, that would save me some frustrations And this link will provide a couple of more photos. http://s1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj487/mmc3673/

    Thanks in advance.

    If it was me I would add three rounds of strips with cornerstones around each block
    then add the yellow sashing with cornerstone last. That's how I see it anyway. I'm
    afraid the easiest way would be to get the graph paper out or use a spreadsheet. It's
    not difficult...do it step by step. Make a test block to make sure everything is right.
    Nice sashing, BTW.

    Lovely quilt. It looks like some sort of a log cabin variation. The only thing I know is to break out the graph paper!

    As one who graphs out nearly everything I do (my own designs usually), I agree with breaking out your graph paper.
    Start by drawing one of your blocks, then adding the sashing you see around it on 2 adjoining sides;
    draw the block next to it and the sashing added on its 2 adjoining sides;
    fill in the difference as you see it in your picture.
    With four blocks drawn (in a 4-patch configuration) you'll have the pattern for creating the sashings you want.

    If you need to, PM me and I'll draw it out for you.

    Looks like Court House in strips instead of blocks. I don't notice and seams where the block should stop in the purple. Whoever did this was very clever! I think they did it in strips or in rounds around the block with the center being a sashing. The corner 'blocks' don't look like any of the same fabric have a seam..... good luck!

    Thank you all for the replies...Yes I have already dragged out the graph paper and started on it...was just checking before I commited completely to making my own pattern in case there was a pattern to save a bit of time.

    It looks like the blue and green are sewn around the blocks and the pink and yellow make up the sashing.

    I think so, too.

    Cleverly done.
    For graphing - I think the white square starts on a 9x9 grid -

    The blue, green, pink, and yellow rectangles seem to be 1x4

    After looking at it more carefully,

    I think the yellow and purple/lavender make up the sashing strip.

    I think the white is 'framed' by the three borders.

    The purples that aren't at the corners are 1x1, 3x1, 5x1 - and 1x7 in the 'sashing strip'
