    I have seen a few quilts online that have the following block but I cannot find a pattern. It looks like a very simple pattern, which would be good for me as I am a beginner

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a pattern.
    The block consists of a square that is surrounded by rectangles on all four sides.

    I am saving up some fat quarters to make a quilt with this pattern.
    Thanks

    Do you mean, square in a square?

    It sounds like a block called "square in a square" if I'm understanding your description. If you can find a beginning quilt book it will be of help to get you started. Good luck & welcome to the quilting world.

    Deanna I checked this site out and found squares within squares 2 which is very similar but instead of the two small suares on the left and right they are oblongs. Any ideas?

    I don't think its a square within a square, as the blocks I have seen for this dont have the middle square at an angle.

    I will keep looking but if anyone knows what I am talking about, that would be great ;-)

    Look under 9 patch. It sounds like an uneven 9 patch to me. Can't remember the exact name.
