    Unknown Quilt Pattern

    Hello dear quilters, I wold love to be able to make a quilt using this block. (I'll attach the photo) The problem is, I don't have a pattern or I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Can someone please help me out? I will gladly pay for the pattern or if anyone can direct me to a website that has it. I will be eternally grateful. Thanks,
    You can message me

    This kind of looks like a version of x's and o's. If you google that, there are all kinds of images and tutes. Good luck. I do like the pattern.

    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    I have Quilt Assistant and looking at the picture, it could be strip pieced, sewing a colored strip, white strip, colored strip. Cut into triangles and sew together.

    Could you make square blocks, 3" sq (or whatever size you like) in middle and then a contrast border, and another border of middle fabric, then cut them diagonally and reposition the triangles to form the cross, just a thought, should have tried it before offering advice I guess, Nanajen

    Missouri Star Quilt Co has a tutorial for one very similar called Summer in the Park. http://quiltingtutorials.com/all/sum...t-jelly-rolls/

    This block is in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol 5

    Angela Pingel is the creator of the block shown. Here is her blog:

    I see two options.

    I always look for the seam lines, so I enlarged the picture (and apologies to the picture owner).

    The smaller block unit could be equilateral triangles (60 degrees) cut from a 3 strip strip set that was
    color-white-color.
    Eight sewn together will make the block. (oops, I missed a green line)
    This would leave bias edges all around the outside of the blocks (quarter and larger one)

    The other option I see is that it was pieced like Summer in the Park - there's a Missouri Quilt video (now with an annoying dentist commerical):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5WgTyqB8Pc

    Here's a .pdf of the pattern.
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5shkCRirc5Sa000b3laT1BRMGc/edit?pli=1

    If you can't get to Google Docs directly, there's a link in this blog post (4th paragraph):
    http://englandstreet.blogspot.com/2012/10/summer-in-park-free-jelly-roll-pattern.html


    While the two strip sets in the video and pattern are different
    (one is color-white-color and the other is white-color-white),
    if you were to make the two strips sets EXACTLY the same (both color-white-color),
    and follow the instructions given for sewing and cutting, you would end up with a block that has SIX stripes - I numbered them on the diagram below (sorry the numbers are so small).

    Then you would sew together 4 of those blocks (same coloring) to get the larger block.

    Personally, I hate this pattern because of all the bias, but I know MQC has a huge following, so the customers must all not mind it.
    If you go this route, I'd suggest starching your fabrics (or at least the strip sets) before cutting the squares.

    Anyway, that's what I see when I look at those blocks.

    Strange that this post is all so spread out - I couldn't make it more compact.
