    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?!!!!

    Thanks but that it not the problem. I tried with "load attachments" and it just would not post. Then I posted without the attachment and tried "add attachment" but it did not like that either. :-(

    Yes, that is it!
    I must say her cushion is just lovely. Maybe I should have just gone for that!

    And I am embarassed to note that the shape I had such difficulty describing is a kite. Duh!!!

    Found it on the first link thank you (great site!)- http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=quilt+block+identification&view=detail&id=F2BBBB548CB84FF27BA39B610C2FA2C7EAEABB54&first=1&FORM=IDFRIR but there is still no name - it is "unidentified 1930s block". How intriguing. Maybe is HAS no name?

    Anyone?
