    I have made the block, but I used it in a Quilt of Valor quilt for my brother. It was fairly easy to make, HST's and squares. I had to reduce it to a 12" block, but no problems there. In place of her black in the block, I used small gold star fabric, for her blue, I used the red w/white stars, and for her red, I used the blue w/white star fabric.

    I've never noticed that block before. Very pretty. And it does look a lot like the yarn "God's Eye"s that I've done before. IMO, it would be majestic in a big block--------60" square or so.

    Don't you often wonder where and how and why some patterns get their names....this one is so interesting....but I wonder what its history is

    I just printed it off a couple of weeks back to make a quilt for my DD. I just love and think it will be a beautiful quilt.

    I have used it as the center of a quilt. Batiks and black, much like the picture. It was outstanding. Wish I had taken a picture before I gave it away.

    Beautiful block. Looks like black & batiks would be the way to go.

    I just finished it in blues with a white center. I did a 16" block. I only did one block. Our club has a challenge of old patterns and their history. Sorry I don't have a picture, my camera is packed.

    Lovely. As a basketmaker, I use the God's eye design when making certain baskets.

    Godseye quilt

    Here is one a girl from the quilt guild did and won a prize for it. Now the quilt guild is going to make one next month for a charity quilt. Then I plan on doing one, but I'm going to wait to see which back ground color I like best. Both light and dark are beautiful.

    My daughter made one block for a quilt for her senior project for college, it was beautiful! I am going to make a wall hanging for her dorm using her favorite sayings and a block on each side,She will graduate in December and God has been with her through all her sickness. This is the only block that fits.

    God's Eye Quilt

    Yes, I have and love that block. If you're thinking of making this, the only real advice I can offer is to definitely stay organized. It has a lot of pieces and can get turned around very easy. I cut the pieces out then laid them out next to my sewing area and worked it that way. I kept laying out the pieces to keep it organized. Not saying I still didn't turn things around once in a while LOL..

    I made this for a wedding gift. Although, I'm not a big fan of batiks and these were not colors I would choose, I was happy with the results. I also used a QAYG method to put together so when it was done....it was done.

    Where did you find the smaller size? I want to make this again in a smaller block but didn't have a clue (with all these pieces) on how to make it smaller.

    ooooooo.....I really like this one!!! Now I definitely have to make another one in colors "I" like. I think scrappy does this block very well.
