    I'm trying to find simpler blocks for a long distance friend to make (this'll be her 2nd quilt).
    I have lots of quilt photos I've taken over the years but they don't have names.
    Does anyone know the name of this block, so I can find the directions for her?
    I realize it's just 9 patchs, center square, and rail fences put together, but she'll need actual step by step.
    thanks

    Cut your center block 4 1/2" and use 2" strips. That should come out to a 12 1/2" block.

    After sewing your strips d,l,d and l,d,l cut them in 2" strips and sew them back together to make the 9 patches

    Sew l, d, l strips and cut at 4 1/2" to make the rails.

    Your sashing can be any size you want although it appears to be 4 1/2" in the picture.

    This might be a version of Cornerstones and Rails block.

    Thanks--
    I appreciate you taking the time to write out the steps. :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I was going to do that but I was hoping to find a tute online that also had step by step photos since she's 150 miles away from me.
    But I don't know the name to type into google search.
    You don't happen to know if this block actually has a name, do you?
    Thanks again

    I can't find my books - packed up getting ready to move. But it is in the book 501 Rotary Cut Quilt Blocks. I believe the author calls it Building Blocks - or maybe Building Blocks II. I happen to remember that one because I am alternating that and an Ohio Star for a quilt for my son (which hopefully I'll get back to once we've moved).

    I couldn't get the link to open.
    I go to quilterscache often but there's so many blocks there that I get sidetracked and I'm there forever. lol.
    But I'll go look now.
    Thanks

    Darn I don't have those books.
    But you've given me a name to try searching with.
    Thanks
