    Can someone please remind of the name of this block?

    For some reason I can't remember the name of this block. I know I have it in one of my gadrillion quilting books but I can't find it!

    I know it as "Wheel of Mystery" it may have a few other names, as most blocks do!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Yup Kitsie, I loved the color too! Red is my favorite. I think I will make one in red but with different borders.

    Thank you everyone for pointing me to the pattern!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lots of times, it's because someone wrote up a pattern and is trying to sell it. If they name it "XYZ Quilt" and an enterprising (but inexperienced) quilter writes down the name and googles it, it won't show up except for sale. However, if the seller actually calls it "Winding Ways", it's a traditional pattern and you can google it and find tons of free patterns and instructions online.

    At least, that's MY guess, for what it's worth. Lol.

    That's beautiful. I love the way the blocks evolve into out laying circles around them.

    guilts often have varying names, depending on geographic location, and historical context. If you think about it, there are basic shapes and configurations for patchwork quilts, so the odds are that over time, the same pattern will evolve in different places and different times, thus a different name. Particularly with the older quilts that pre-date the reference capacities we have today for patterns etc.

    It's called Winding Ways. I made a bedspread in this pattern only it is black and white. It is a pretty easy pattern to make once you get comfortable with sewing curves.
