    What IS the name of this block?

    There are so many knowledgable, talented people here that maybe someone can help.
    This is a 10.5" BOM by AZPatch for June 2000 - the month and year my youngest was born. It was called Victorian Magnolia, but I canot find a free online 12.5 " pattern by that name. And my math skills are very rusted.
    Any help will be appreciated!

    I think you may find it difficult to make a 12.5 (12" finished block). I would interpret it as 9 patch with sashing and a green cornerstone. If you look at it as a single block, it's a 7X7 patch which would be difficult to do as a 12 inch block without really strange measurements. would you settle for a 14" (finished) block? If so, the small squares would finish at 2".

    Kind of looks like a variation of a Bear's Paw to me.

    each square would have to finish at 1 3/4" This would make it a bit more than a 12" finished block but near. or unfinished square at 2" which is certainly doable

    Here are the instructions to make it 12" finished size. The math isn't as funky as I thought it was going to be: Name:  Capture.JPG

    Maybe my math is off, but this is what I'm coming up with:

    If each strip is 2-1/4
    Then each strip would 'finish' to 1-3/4 -> 1-3/4 = 7/4
    Seven times 7/4 = 49/4 = 12-1/4
    The squares - as I figure it - would end up finishing at 12-1/4 inches

    The rectangles in the center plus the center square would finish to 12 inches
    1-3/4 + 5-1/8 + 5-1/8 = 12

    I don't think it would go together very well with the dimensions given

    Perhaps make a test block and prove me wrong?

    i think paper princess may be right on the math but it can be done with some work. here is an adaptation.
    http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CrossandCrownBlock.html

    or to adapt this block pattern you could make the center strip/square at 2.5"unfin(2" fin) and the other six sections are cut at 2.25"uf (1.75"f). this would get you to 12.5"uf block
