    I found a reference to the pattern on a flikr photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/8244232@N08/2557281664/
    it says the Design is from Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns by Leisure Arts.

    but i also found that the technique for it is demonstrated on at video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOWSp...layer_embedded

    I found the pattern in a book I have called "Leisure Arts Presents Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns" I did a quick search and found it on Ebay for $24.47. http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Encyclopedia...vised-/1961166

    It's really very easy to make, you cut contrasting 2" strips of fabric, sew them together in strip sets, separate strips sets so that one set has the lighter fabric on top and the other with the darker fabric on top. Measure 3.5" from top left corner of strip set, make a mark then mark 7.25" from there across the rest of the strip. On the bottom of the same strip start at the edge and mark 7.25" intervals across the strip. Then cut triangles at these points of course discarding the first cut where you marked the 3.5". Then arrange the triangles to make the crosses. Of course you could probably do this with the nice nifty triangle rulers they have out now, I haven't tried that yet...
