    Does anyone recognize this block?

    I am trying to use up my 2.5 inch strip bin and came up with this block. I am not sure how it will look in a quilt and would like to see examples, but do not know what to search for.
    Anyone know the name???

    No, but check out the Quilters Cache website, they have lots of blocks , also Free Patterns.com. I looked through a few of my books but didn't see the exact same block. It's similar to a Bento Box, so maybe that could give you the idea.

    I don't know the name of the block but have seen similar one to that.That block would look great in a quilt. I would alternate blocks to have dark touch light throughout. Looking forward to seeing what you make.

    Kitsie is right about your pattern being the center part of a bento box.

    I love the fabric choices and your great piecing skills!

    I agree it looks like the center of a Bento box. What I liked about it was that each pair of 2.5 x wof strips yield 2 blocks. All I would have to do is pair up a light and a dark strip. Most of my strips are left over jelly rolls where I only have 1.

    I agree with everyone else-it looks like the center of the bento box pattern.

    I like your fabric.
    I saw a quilt using this portion of the Bento Box and was trying to find out what it was called and how to make it.
    Thank you all for answering my unasked question.

    Why not make this as one large block -- sort of a large log cabin with only 2 rounds -- and then cut it in half thru the middle, both directions. Make two different colored ones.
    Seems a lot easier than handling four smaller sections for each Bento Box.

    I have seen this in Quilters Cache - I think it is called Square in a square
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    I saw this as a tile floor in a hotel took photos. Have not had a chance to make the block, and I could not find it anywhere. Thanks for the sample, I knew it would look great!

    If you have EQ or another drawing program it could be drawn out and played with.........just a thought.

    It looks like a disappearing block of some kind, but what?

    Very pretty. Have you tried Pinterest to see examples? They have one that is very similar.
