    Smile Please ... Show me the block?

    Hi! A young lady asked me to make this quilt for her, but I can't figure out the block. I sometimes use Paint on my pc to draw the lines of the blocks on the picture - that is, if I can see it .... but I can't 'see' this one. My first thought was Turning 20, but I can't see the repeat, or the 90 degree flip. Can any of you please show me where the block(s) begin? Thanks in advance! calano1

    I don't think it's made of any specific block. It's more of the crazy quilt category
    where rectangles and squares are sewn together. It seems like some squares are
    just sewn over with a decorative stitch.

    I don't see any block either. Find a quilt pattern that is similar and show it to your friend. I'll bet she is attracted to the embroidery and the color. I think if you did the Turning Twenty in those colors and fabric and had embroidered blocks she would be happy.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    When I look at this photo, I am wondering if it is not printed material made to look like a quilt.?
    The "seams" do not seem to have the definition that they normally would.

    Happy quilting,

    Exactly what I was thinking. Look along the left edge ... starting at the bottom and working upward ... the solid grey rectangle has a narrow border along the left edge. Follow that border upwards and you will see the border stops mid-way through the stripe fabric. At that point, the red in the stripe is much more vibrant than the red in the rest of that fabric. OK ... keep going upwards and you'll see the grey block with the border then the stripe fabric repeat identically (just tucked in to the folded over top). Also notice that if it were pieced this way ... there would be a Y seam in there. Somehow the simplicity of the rest of the patter doesn't scream "I think I'll put a Y seam here" let alone to repeat that action in exactly the same place further up the quilt. There are a few other places that look like Y seams too. So yes, I think it's a printed whole cloth. The white blocks might have been appliqued on, but I think those are part of the print as well.

    I think the closest you will come to a pattern similar to this is turning twenty.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I would think the colors and fabric design are what your friend is liking about this quilt and any chopped big square pattern would probably please her.
    Got fabric?

    IF it were individual blocks (not a cheater fabric), it would entail lots of square and rectangle blocks with many set in seams.

    Good Luck!

    Ask the young lady where she saw the quilt, was it 'store bought' or made by a quilter. It looks like it might have some embroidery in it - based on the M and the angels, but I guess that could be part of the fabric, too.
