    Hi! I would love to make a quilt using the same pattern as this block on a barn quilt in Kentucky. Does anyone know what the pattern is called?

    Thanks!

    I would make a larger copy of the block and draw lines down the center and across the center. then draw lines to make squares in that and you have it. make four and sew together. sometimes it is difficult to find a pattern for something but you can make it up yourself.

    It is great, isn't it. I actually want to make a big square quilt just using that one block, then hang it inside of the barn where my wedding reception will be next summer.

    Ok, if you're going for size, then I would make the side X's out of HST-blocks.

    The whole image is essentially on a 4x4 grid, so if you want it to be 60" square, then each corner block, for instance, would be 15" finished. And the 15" is still a workable size.

    How big do you want it? 60"? 68"? 76?" I'll give you the piece sizes.

    Oh wow, thanks! I would like it to be around 80 inches square, so we can use it on a queen bed.

    What does HST stand for? I am new to quilting--the only quilt I have made so far is the one in my profile photo, which I just did last winter for my niece.

    Thanks!

    Actually, I just looked up bedspread sizes, rather than just sheet sizes, and it looks like I should do it at 100 inches square, to make sure that it will fully cover an extra-deep mattress.

    OK, now don't laugh! I'm trying to learn how to analyze a block! The 4 white squares in the upper right could obviously be a single square.

    Not to stir the pot, but just be aware that with each square being 24"**, and hanging down on the sides of the bed, it really isn't going to look like much on the bed, except a bunch of HUGE pieces of fabric.

    (instead of 25" - math/cutting is easier w/o half inches at this size, plus you're new - I love your avatar quilt - but you don't need the added hassle of cutting bigger than your rulers)

    Perhaps making the pattern fit the top of the bed, and then doing something for the sides hanging down. A queen size mattress top measures 60" x 80" across the top, so you're talking a 20" overhang on the sides.

    Just mentioning it. And congratulations.

    I Agree with MTS. I would scale the main pattern to fit the top of the mattress and add borders. Easier to construct, and you won't loose part of the pattern in the fall of the quilt.

    Really good point to scale back so that the quilt makes sense on the bed.

    I just measured the top+sides of the deep double bed that I have now and 80 inches would work well on it. So, I'll make an 80 inch square quilt with no border (to stay true to the barn-quilt look when it is hanging in the barn).

    Thanks for the congratulations and for all of the great input! Really helpful, especially for a newbie like me who loves quilting and fabrics, but does not know what will be most effective (like staying under the 24.5 inch length of my ruler!).

    P.S. I think I'll use this Joel Dewberry fabric, along with a white linen/cotton blend for the quilt.

    Wedding colors are mustard and white (-:
