    Can anyone tell me the name of this block or where I can get the pattern?

    I usually can pick it apart and make my own pattern but I am in a hurry(as usual). Thank you for all your help....Dee....it is a 14 1/2 inch block unfinished.

    It could be a variation on a churn dash block?
    Looks to me that it is simply rows of 5x5 squares and half-square triangles using 5 different fabrics.
    cut 2 red squares, cut 2 blue squares fro cornerstones
    cut 6 pink floral squares*, 6 black floral squares*
    cut 10 yellow floral squares* (2 paired with 2 pink floral, 2 paired with 2 black floral, sew into half-square triangles)
    *optionally reduce the cut floral squares by 2 and instead for each cut one rectangle the same length as 2 squares)

    The only trick to it is the unit size. 14&1/2 block unfinished with 5 units is 14/5 = 2.8 then add in the seam allowance of .5 to get the unit size of 3.3x3.3

    I'm seeing a lot of traditional blocks coming out in copy write patterns that the patterns are exactly the same just makes a different size block.

    I think I recognize that as "Boxy Stars" from Quiltville. Here's the link to the pattern & a picture from the website of a quilt made from this (fabulous!) pattern --->
