    Paper Princess has the right idea, but too many seams for my liking. To elongate the middle also, I'd do it this way, and as others have said, the alternate block has to be the mirror image:

    I'm posting this again because the previous pic is a little blurry. The ends of the horizontal strips can just be snowballed to achieve the effect of the quilt

    I'm with you Nan. Less seams is always better...and just think of all those wonderful little HST's you get when you snowball the corners. Those are great in a border or as an accent in the backing.

    thanks btiny, PP, and Barb. Sure wish I knew the correct name of it, though, so I can name it right in my EQ

    Unique, pretty quilt! Love the way it looks "curved" without the curved seam. Thank you for making the diagram for us.

    This was my impression of the quilt also. I love the colors. Guess we all want to make one now! Thanks for adding to my list.
