    And if those floral blocks had been cut up, I doubt KarrynneStorm (op) would have even had to post the question as it would be obvious HOW the blocks were pieced.

    The genius in this version - and kudos to Jenny - is that the construction is camouflaged, and by using a larger scale print (whole) - the movement from block to block - or even patch to patch - is very subtle.

    After admiring the overall effect, you keep squinting at it and tilting your head thinking it's pieced one way, but then you notice it can't be and you look for another way.
    Just look at all the suggestions on this thread.

    That would not be the case if you made up the floral block from smaller patches.

    If you look at all the majority of C&B and Batik Waves and OceanWaves (different but same concept as the C&B) blocks, they all have med to high contrast between the patches.
    It allows them to join like fabric to give the appearance of a larger block.

    I think the pattern may be called Northwinds. I would share my PDF file not a real pattern but it is fairly easy to understand. Michelle in Omaha.

    Well for what it is worth, here is another way to do Corn and Beans that differs from Quilters Cache and gives the solid block look if the colors are carefully matched. Pattern is found as August 1, nancy martin's perpetual calendar "365 quilt blocks a year". I have two of these calendars so if you want this page, PM and i'll tear it out or scan it for you and mail it. I have made a quilt using these patterns, True and relatively easy though it took me two years because of the number of pieces in it. Not this pattern however, though it seems to have about the same number of pieces.

    What about blooming 9 patch? One of the gals in our guild did one that kind of reminded me of this picture.

    At first, I thought perhaps this layout was on-point with diagonal HST sashing; although after sketching it out I found that is just an illusion. I believe it is a combination of 4-patch blocks, and half-square triangle 9-patch blocks; where the 9-patch HSTs are every other block, and every other row alternates between the floral 4-patches and hand-dyed 4-patches. Although I think I'd prefer the floral 4-patches not to be; I'd rather full-size squares and wrote the instructions below that way. It's not as difficult as it looks.

    Fabrics: For each coordinating fabric color family, choose two hand-dyed solids and one medium-size floral print.

    Cutting: Define a full-size square measurement dependent upon desired final dimensions & quantity of rows/columns.
    Of each floral fabric, cut one full-size square, and eight quarter-size squares (for half-square triangles).
    Of each solid fabric, cut ten quarter-size squares (two for four-patches, and eight for half-square triangles).

    Layout: Arrange the cut blocks into rows alternating full-size floral squares and paired solid four-patch squares; also place the remaining quarter-size squares near its matching fabric, then pair-up each with a neighboring solid/floral pair.

    Construction: Take care to keep the laid out color arrangements in order along the way.
    Stack, sew, press a single four-patch for each quarted-size solid fabric pair, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew, press the quarter-size solid/floral pairs into half-square triangles, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew, press the half-square triangles into 9-patches, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew and press, blocks into rows, then repeat sewing paired rows until the quilt-top is completely constructed.
