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.
