    Which one, the first one with the light blue and nine patches? If so, I think that's Baby Blocks or Building Blocks with a nine patch for one of the sides, the top side.

    Yes, the large pic of the light blue one. I'll check the patterns you suggested. Thank you.

    Checked both of those patterns - neither have that 3D effect that I want.

    It looks like a variation on Tumbling Blocks with a nine patch for one face

    I googled '3D 9 patch quilt' and a bunch of hits were returned. Here's one:

    This is not exactly the same, but Karen Combs did something very similar:

    I was recently part of a nine patch swap so I ywant to use these for my quilt. Many of the patterns use a diamond shape to achieve the 3D effect. I need the pattern to have a square for one of the sides. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions but none of them will work so far.

    The one from Princess is good but she wrote that it had 960 set in seams - I think that might challenge my patience!

    Trying to describe how I would approach it:

    Look at the picture diagonally, as blocks are on point.

    Isolate what I will call sashing, although I think it's part of the blocks. Look at only the 9 patch and sashing on two opposite sides as if going across the block. Looking this way, you will see that it looks like a strip with a square that was stitched and flipped to make a triangle on corner. Light blue on the dark rectangles, dark blue one the light rectangles.

    While I don't think this was the way it was made, it might work... If, that is, you can figure out what I'm talking about!

    There is a tumbling blocks pattern from the series Not Your Grandmother's that makes a TB without Y seams. If you look at that, it might help you. The 3D effect is, in large part, bc of color selection and placement.

    Does this help?


    The blogger says she saw the pattern in 5500 QuiltBlocks by Maggie Mahone.

    I have both Not your grandmother's and 5500 quilt blocks on hold at my library - will be anxious to see if they have that quilt block and instructions. I'll be sure to let you all know - thank you!

    I have no clue as to it's name, but it is one of the more interesting patterns I've seen.

    While the quilt you linked to is reminiscent of Tumbling blocks you have discovered that most Tumbling blocks are assembled using all diamond shape units. Because you want to frame a square 9P with the 3d effect, look into the pattern Attic Windows for your assembly. You can skip the set in seam by using a HST as the corner unit of the sashing (note that the seam is better concealed if you use a print fabric that "reads" solid, rather than a solid). Then set your completed blocks on point and you should get the effect you are looking for.

    So funny- I just bought a box of books & mags at a church sale. Scrap Quilts Galore form Oxmoor House has a 3-d 9-patch pattern by Mary Ann Keathly that looks like that. But after the 9-patches it looks like a LOT of set in seams that would drive me CRAZY. As I look at it, you might be able to use HSTs at the corners & sew the blocks together on the diagonal. Don't know for sure, but I think I would sketch it out before trying all those set in seams. IMHO

    I have that on bucket list. The pattern I have is from Great American Quilts 1994, but I know it is in another one of my "Best of, some kind of collection of" books too. At quick glance, you make the 9 patch squares. Add strips on the 4 sides of some of them, and sew seams (with on-points together sewn to make seam) to make a vertical row(length of quilt). Sew 9 patch squares between rows. Kind of hard to describe in words, but if you look at picture, you put a 9 patch between vertical rows of 9 patch and sashing blocks. Lots of y seams, but you get the hang of them after you do so many. Lots of instructions on youtube.
