    Past & Present quilt pattern

    I saw (& LOVED) this quilt in a catalog. I'm not familiar with this pattern. I don't even know if it's really called "Past & Present" or not. Anybody know anything about this? My DD recently got engaged & this would go perfectly in her new house, so I have to make it... HAVE TO! LOL!

    Don't know the block name, but it looks like the small accent blocks are 1/9th the size of the big block. So basically a 9 patch with one odd square. Shouldn't be too hard to duplicate.

    For a 9 inch finished block cut a 9.5 x 6.5 fabric piece. Out of the same fabric cut a 6.5 x 3.5 piece. Cut a 3.5 x 3.5 block of whatever contrasting color you want and sew to the 6.5 x 3.5 strip. Than sew that to the 9.5 x 6.5 piece of fabric. Completes your block. Clear as mud? A nine patch would work if you want the block more scrappy. The above is less seams. Someone correct my measurements if they see an error.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Looks like a disappearing 9 patch to me...

    I don't see any errors in dakotamaid's suggestion above. I would probably strip piece the 6.5 x 3.5 segments if you aren't going to take a real scrappy approach to it. Then cut down from there. Even faster!
