    I don't have that pattern, but I could probably talk you thru it if no one else comes up with a pattern. If you tilt your head? you will see a checkerboard block and a pinwheel block. For the checkerboard, you can either do all the small squares one by one, or do two strip sets. One set would be color/neutral/C/N/C and the other set would be N/C/N/C/N. YOu would need 3 sets starting with the neutral and 2 sets starting with the color. The pinwheel block is 4 HST squares put together. Side and corner triangles are needed to fill in. Hope this gives you a start. I would be pretty easily done up on graph paper.

    It looks like an EQ drawing of a quilt pattern.
    Got fabric?

    Congratulations on your first sale, and on your excellent drawing!

    How big a quilt does your friends want - is that supposed to be a twin or king?
    If it's the larger - do want bigger blocks or more blocks or that picture to fit the size?

    Wow!! You made a great first sale. Wish I could find that kind of market around here. this quilt would be very easy to make. You can just look at it and put it together once you figure out your dimentions of the blocks you want. I say, get crackin!! Times a wastin! 2.5 inch blocks is always a good size to work with.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    This pattern is on Quilters Cache somewhere, I'll have a look and find the page. Can't remember the name of the block.

    Can't find it, must have been in a magazine somewhere. Others are here with very good results!

    If your base measurement is 2" FINISHED for the 16-patch block, then the quilt size, as you've drawn it, will be ~60"x72", including borders.

    Estimated fabric requirements would be:

    16 patch blocks - Colors (total) and Neutral = 1 yard each

    Pinwheels - Colors (total) and Neutral = 1.25 yards each

    Border yardage not included.

    And if you drew that layout, you don't need a pattern. ;-)

    Exactly what I was thinking. Did you draw it, or did you find the picture somewhere?

    Don't mind me, but that is a 25 patch block.

    Yikes. And so it is. Thanks.
    (I pulled up an earlier version I already had in EQ).

    Be back in a minute.....


    Actually, the drawing I used did use the 25 patch but I incorrectly put it in as an 8" block instead. Duh.

    REVISED Estimated fabric requirements would be:

    25 patch blocks/10" blocks - Colors (total) and Neutral = 1.5 yards each

    Pinwheels - Colors (total) and Neutral = 1.75 yards each

    Border fabric yardage not included.

    Size as drawn would be ~74"x84" including borders.


    Note: The fabric amounts might even be a little less because of the weird way EQ calculates yardage.


    Thanks susie-susie-susie!

    MTS you are really good at figuring out just what she needs, fab. and all I'm thinking we need to just give you a pic. when we have a problem on a pattern and let you figure it out for us, lol you're great! I could probably figure this out but it woul have taken me a good while to do so, and seems you did it it just a few minutes.

    Most of the time I don't use a pattern, but I always over estimate how much fabric I need. Thank you for your help.

    This is a picture, the customer emailed me. The quailty is very poor. I did regragh this because the custmer wants a custom size wall hanging 3 ft x 7 ft. The only reason I'm looking for the pattern is for the fabric requirements. I always over estimate, and end up adding to my stash. With this one I want to be a little closer.

    I would add the corners to the 25 patch block and forget all the on point stuff. The outside blocks would be a headache for me to set.
    Got fabric?

    Just an FYI - the quote from my earlier post that you both included was incorrect. I did revise it in another post after Susiex3 pointed out my boo-boo.

    Well, no pattern is going to have the requirements for that rather non-standard size.

    Ignore the colors - I just do that in EQ to easily and quickly get the fabric requirements.

    This layout gets you close to 33"x86" including the borders - using a basic patch eize of 1.5" FINISHED (cut 2"), blocks are 7.5" FINISHED.

    25patch blocks - 3/4 yard for each the colors and neutral.
    Pinwheel blocks - 1 yard each for colors and neutral.

    If you go up to a 1.75" FINISHED unit (cut 2.25"), block size 8.75" FINISHED, you'll be over the 36" width - maybe the customer is hanging it on the wall between two doors and that's the exact size she needs.
    You could always adjust the borders if you wanted the larger block.
    The fabric needed would increase only by about 1/8yd for the pinwheels.

    You're going to end up with extra fabric anyway because you need a variety of colors to make it work.
    If you buy 8-10 fat quarters for the colors and variety, you should have more than enough for the 25patch and pinwheel blocks.

    This should easily take less than a day to cut and sew.
    Picking the fabric will probably take longer. ;-)
    Depending on how fast you work, you could have the whole thing quilted and bound as well.

    Thank you for the pattern and thank you to Soccertaxi for the quick plans. I think I can do this. What a good way to use scraps and to challenge us just a little. Oh , yes and thanks to MTS for the fabric calculations! Off I go to add another scrappy quilt to my pattern collection. Wish I had more time to actually implement my plans! Retirement is in about 6 years....maybe then. Tee-Hee!

    Looks like a great scrap quilt! Should be easy to figure a pattern, pinwheels and 5 patch. Just have to figure a reasonable size, 1" finished squares would need a 2.5" finished triangle for the pinwheels, for one size combo.

    Whatever the name, this looks like a great project to bust your stash. Would love to see this made up!

    It's a 25 patch with a pinwheel. Set on point. Several are saying 16 patch. Look more carefully.

    According to Judy Hopkins in "Around The Block Again" it is COUNTRY CHECKERS. HOPE THIS HELPS.
