    Dumb question, "What is a TOTW?".

    It is a diagonal pattern, I've done it with my rag quilts! Just keep extending the rows.

    Edited to say I looked at the picture again and I do see a pattern there with the rows of patterns going in a slant.
    An early bargello??

    I'm in about the same shape with a "find" at the Thrift Shop - a checkbook box of 2" squares - have not gone through them all to see what matches, but it will be fun to experiment to make them into something. I may use some of them at least for a little 4-patch quilt for the new little baby coming - so he has his own little patchwork quilt.... But will see about colors and matches I can make first. But, aren't finds like this fun? I just love them.

    I have made charm quilts with the colors running in diagonal lines. Maybe she really liked the pink corner squares but did not have enough for a whole row. Any way its a wonderful bargain! have fun! diane c

    What a deal I would take it all apart and find a pattern I like and adapt it to the number of squares you have good luck.

    Please post a pic of the final result! Maybe the larger squares are for a border, or maybe they were simply cut incorrectly and you could cut them down to 3".

    I think it might be one block of an Irish Chain. That usually has one block with a distinct diaganol and the other block has larger plain area with a cuople of more small squares as in the larger pieced one. Just look up Irish Chain and you will find single, double, triple,etc. it makes a nice, easy and fairly quick top.

    I've seen the pattern - and very recently. But I can't remember the name. :cry: Maybe it will come to me.

    It looks to be identical blocks set diagonally. You could continue on the diagonal until all the blocks are used or you could end it and start again with the blocks going on the opposite diagonal. Just a thought. I have no idea what the pattern is called.

    It just looks like diagonal rows to me. Very simple, but effective.

    I think it might be the begining of a bargello pattern.

    That looks like a diagonal pattern which I think will look really nice when it is completed.

    It looks like what I call "Sunshine and Shadow" but I'm not sure - diagonal rows of fabric -

    Ok - so what I call "Sunshine and Shadow" is what other folks call "Trip Around the World" - but this website shows what I meant........
