Hi all, this is the first time I have uploaded a picture so fingers crossed. Does anyone know the name and where I can get the instructions for this quilt.
Thank you all so much.

I believe this is the kleidoscope block.
Fons and Porter has a free pattern for it here http://www.freequiltpatterns.info/fo...cy-mahoney.htm

Hope this is what you are looking for.

And once you find the instructions, take a good look at how the fabric values (lights & darks) were used in the block to create those secondary & tertiary patterns.

It's a very versatile block, and you can change the lock of the quilt easily by playing around with the value placement of the patches.

yes, it's a kaleidoscope pattern. Like MTS, I'd recommend paying attention to how you place your lights/darks within the block itself. It may be helpful to find a line drawing so you can color it in and see how you will want to place your fabrics to create those lovely circle patterns within the pattern.

Good luck.
