    Newbie looking for help

    Hello! I am a newbie here. I am a beginner quilter from NC. I am looking for the name of a quilt block. It has a square in the middle with four trapezoids around it. Can anyone point me in the direction of this block? I feel like it is something super simple and I am just missing it.

    Hey there, I thought I saw this before in a different section. Maybe it was the graphic that was the problem?

    Anyway, I believe the best choice for you is a Spool Pattern. There are different variations, here is one with the square in the middle and the trapezoids are made with a seam so no set in seams which is generally considered the easier way to do it.

    I also know that as Woodbox when the square and sides are closer to the same proportions or Kitchen Woodbox is a bit fancier.

    Hi and welcome from the piedmont of NC!

    I can't answer your question. I have a terrible memory for names, but there are many people here who will help.

    Yes! I believe the graphic was the problem. The Spool Pattern looks like what I am looking for. Thank you!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
