    Anyone recognize this pattern?

    Hi! I found this on my quilt guild website and just love this pattern. Can anyone tell me what it is? I'd love to make this one. I've been collecting 30's fabrics and this fits the bill!

    Agree with sewingladydi, It's a Nine Patch Snowball.

    Thank you for the help everyone! I'm thrilled to find out 2 simple blocks make up this quilt. I have all my 30's fabrics in mind to make this one.

    Why, silly me! You Eagle Eye, indeed they are....HEADS UP everybody,the 9-patch blocks should have the colors in the center and corners, NOT as I previously drew them.

    That THUD you heard was me falling off that pedestal - told you not to put me up there!

    The name I have seen for this combination is Stepping Stones. BTW, it looks entirely different if the 9 patch is fully colored.

    Nine patches can and do have all sorts of color layouts.

    I'm piecing blocks right now for two twin bed quilts in this pattern. My dd wants all pastels, with cream and beige background pieces (not white). I'm including some 1930's reproduction fabrics, and some actual 1930's fabrics, plus fabrics from my stash.

    Would anybody be so generous and tell me the sizes of these blocks? I know the snowball block is a square with the smaller square pieces sewed on top, but I need to know the sizes of ALL the blocks. I just that kind of quilting lady. Thanks for your help out there in quilting land! ~~Ann~~

    I too saw this quilt on a shophop web site and agree it would be lovely in 30's prints. Even thought about doing that too. Think I will check out the batik one on quilter's cache too. Love it when two simple blocks can make such a stunning quilt don't you?
    wonderfully and beautifully made, even if you can't see it on the outside
