Default Can you help me with these blocks?

I would like to remake these two blocks and while they are simple blocks I am having a hard time w/the measurements for some of the parts. These are 12.5" blocks and I know they came from Quilters Cashe, but I am not sure of the name so I can't find the pattern. Could someone help me w/either measurements or the pattern?

Thanks so much!

I too don't know the names of the blocks but I tried to make them with EQ7 to get the measurements! This is what it says for the first block:

I hope you can read it otherwise I'll try something different!

I HAVE TO DO IT ONCE MORE: IT'S ALL IN CENTIMETERS!!!!!

Sorry, no help here, just a question...is it "wrong" to substitute half square triangles on blocks like the first one? So many blocks can be easily done with less waste using that method.

The first block is called Brave World. Not sure of the second one. http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...ilt-block.html

And now the second block:

I don't know whether "A" is not in the measurement, but perhaps you can find it out!

Found the first block called spinner block (I'm sure that's not the only name) Haven't seen the second one but should n't be hard to make using hour-glass blocks for the star part.
