I need help with the names of these blocks.
Here are two photos of quilts I've made.
The first I've called "The Magic Blanket" because it was my little son's security blanket. I assured him that it would magically keep all his night time fears at bay so he could get to sleep. He used it until it got worn to a thread, and now I'd like to make a copy for his child. My problem is that I can't remember the name of the block.
The second I call simply "The Checkerboard Quilt" but it must have a more common name. It was what I call a panic quilt. I had just retired and found myself with a LOT of time on my hands, went into a slight panic, and made this quilt (hand pieced and hand quilted) in 6 weeks. A quick one, for me. I gave it to my 87 year old mother, in hopes that despite her Alzheimer's, she might remember who I am.
I guess there's a lot of emotion associated with some quilts. Sorry about that.
Any help with the names would help.
