Fingers crossed this works- I have tried a few times to post a picture of this block (pattern from Material Obsession Two) so that I can ask what block it is. The book gives a name for the quilt, but not the block.
I feel funny not knowing its proper name!
Aww- it will not load the picture.
Ok, it comprises a central hexagon, made from six shapes that I also dont know the name of- they are I suppose diamonds, but are actually big 60 degree triangles sharp points in the centre) each with a 120 degree triangles on the outside of the hexagon, if you know what I mean!
The entire block is made of those diamond-ish shapes. The easiest way to "see" it is as a series of larger equilateral triangles each made of three of the component pieces. Four of those triangles make up a bigger triangle and there are six of those in the block, giving a six pointed start with secondary points.
Hard to describe... can someone please recommend a website where they show different blocks and name them?!!!!
