    This is a picture of a 1000 pc puzzle, but I love the quilt depicted on the bottom portion. Have you ever seen a quilt like this in a book before? Or even the block?

    I had a look through quilters cache and couldn't spot it there but I may have missed because of a different set of colors...

    If its not a real quilt/block I bet it could be made into a real one. The one block reminds me of a spool of thread.

    Someone with EQ should be able to print a pattern. It has four fence rails,one 9 patch, and I have seen those squares before but I don't remember the name. You would need four of those. And then the sashing. Do you have some graph paper? You could figure it out that way too. It is very striking. I hope you make one!

    I've seen this before in a book. I think it's from a painting--a woman painter. Sorry I don't remember more.

    It reminds of a take on warm wishes except with pieced blocks instead of a fabric square. It should be easy to design your own.

    It's a pretty block. I have no idea what it might be called, but it would be interesting to make.

    Looks like it should be pretty easy to reproduce.
    May try hand drafting it.. it is pretty.

    So I think it is a spool, nine patch and rail all combined to make a block :wink:
