    Do you know this block/pattern

    My friend is trying to find this block or the pattern. I would just wing it but she is a fairly new quilter and would appreciate a little information.

    Its gorgeous you could graph it out into 10x10 blocks- Id do 1 1/2 inches each finished so that the lined pieces would come out easily

    I agree. Should be easy to graph, and with that triple partial 'sashing' portion, luvspaper is correct. Choose a patch size that is easily divisible by 3.

    I don't know the block but I do like it and I wanted to save it for future use so I created it in EQ7. You could make it as a 10 inch block with little bitty, tiny pieces, or like I would do, as a 20" block. If you can't find the pattern, maybe this picture of the block will help your friend. I omitted some of the background pieces being two parts and made them as flying geese, so I have changed the pattern somewhat.

    This is an intriguing block. Could also have a plain block in the center. I really like it. Will follow this post.

    What a great quilt block...your friend must be ambitious, especially if she is a new quilter.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Thanks. I too love the pattern. Will make beautiful spring pillows. Is charm pack friendly - good way to use those charm packs that I fall in love with, buy and then don’t know what to do with.

    I like the larger size possibility.

    Wouldn't that work with a fussy cut center instead of the 16 patch. I can see lots of great possibilities. Thank you.

    I love the block as well. I've been playing around with it and came to the conclusion that a quilt using it needs sashing, otherwise it is too busy. Here's a 2x2 layout using sashing:

    I agree it would make a great pillow pattern and also set that way would need sashing. I have to wonder what it would look like on point though -- probably still need a background sashing!
