    Can you help identify this pattern

    Can someone help me identify this pattern? I know its a french braid but I would like to be able to make this and I need the particulars as cutting and fabric needs.

    Thanks

    Cindy

    The blocks are 6 x6.

    The website where the picture was posted has a 'contact the shop owner' link. the shop owner may give you the pattern name so you can search for it specifically. the description of the blocks for sale says that they are 6" blocks.

    You really wouldn't need a pattern ... start with the square in the corner. Then french braid down from there. Add triangles to the sides.

    To get the sizings/measurements, the easiest way would be to mock it up on graph paper. Then either sew conventionally or use it as a PP pattern to make your blocks ever so consistent.

    Lovely pattern!!

    If they are 6" blocks, cut each strip at 1.5" to finish at 1". The corner square, where you start, would be 3.5" unfinished to finish at 3".

    I have a block that I call Corner Tulip. If you like paper piecing, let me know and I'll post a PDF of that pattern. Here's a PDF for rotary cutting I made for you in EQ 7:

    I would love a PDF pattern for the PP of this block. It is a very striking pattern.

    Another name for this is friendship braid. I like the quilt designs that quiltingfamily shows on etsy, several ways you can use these blocks.

    This is so funny. I won 36 of these exact blocks on ebay for a great price. I don't know the name of them either, but they are so pretty and they are very, very scrappy. I couldn't believe the price! Now that someone mentioned it, they do look like tulips. In fact, I think I won 37 of them. If I did, I could send you one. Jeanne

    A braid can also be made using a half hexagon ruler. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dn_4vTxwfk

    Hope you do not mind that I copied this also. I have been looking at the braids for a while but was a little intimidated by them but this makes it looks simplt.

    Thank you Lynda for sharing. This would be a nice way to use up some scraps.

    Looks like a variety of the friendship braid. I did a scrappy one, found instructions on youtube.

    I think it is a block I have downloaded free from Quilt blocks Pro. If you are not a member, they send you a block of the day every day, and they also archive the old blocks. Well worth registering.

    strip set size and then cut many with your triangle ruler - first using the triangle ruler straight up and
    then turning it 180 to get a triangle point down, thus maximizing how many triangles you get from
    your strips. Good luck - if this is too confusing for you, then you need to call the shop owner and buy the pattern-Judy

    on easily tearable paper and paper-piecing the center diagonal unit as mentioned in earlier replies. Last resort-print out 6" block and cut it into pieced- trace these onto template plastic - and cut and sew.
    Really last resort, call the shop owner and ask if there is a pattern for sale - if not, then go back to the above
    methods. You can do it. - Judy

    I absolutely love this block and the scrappy pattern.
    Has anyone come up with a title for this quilt?
    I am not good at following directions unless I have the pattern in front of me.
    For some reasons cannot get answers to questions on here like before the new format.
