    Start in the centre. Treat the block as five sections.

    There is a reason this is classified as "advanced" on Jinny's website.

    You should probably piece the four outside sections (6, 8, 8, 5, 4) first, then the four star sections should be next (2, 3, 3) and (2, 7). Finally, the center (1, 1) and join all the sections together.

    Since Jinny does not add seam allowances to the pattern pieces, it should be fairly easy to print out several copies of the templates, trim them down and tape them together for a paper piecing project.

    When one pieces by hand, the order does matter, but not nearly as much as when sews by machine.

    You could print out the pieces, cut them out, and play with how you think it might go together.

    quiltilicious' directions are the ones I would follow

    Looks to me like it's the design in the fabric and not little pieces of fabric braided. It's twin fabrics, with one having the design a little bit bigger than the other and a border on it. :-D

    Looks complicated, I agree with trying a print out and maybe cut up some scrap then see if it makes sense to start in center and add around. will keep checking post as Im curious.

    Since I am a visual person, I started playing around with the pieces and pattern. I like PP better, so I enlarged the little corner piece by 400%. That gave me a finished block at 6 3/8" adding your 1/4" seam would make it 6 7/8" I believe.
    It takes four blocks to make up the first picture.
    Be very careful about placement of the #'s 4 and 5 as they overlap. I'm going to go to the machine and play with this one. Looks intriguing.

    I wonder if this was meant to be hand pieced (or paper pieced as already stated). It is a very unusual block and I've been looking for a challenge. Thanks for sharing.

    I think I will try one of these blocks. Ill post pictures as I go through the cutting and pieceing if you like.

    Should I add them in this thread or start a new one?

    If you have a local quilting store I have found a lot of help from the ladies that work at them. They are usually very friendly and willing to help plus have years of experience too.

    It is by number, like a paint by number. up in the left hand corner of the download she has 1/4 of it numbered. Plus I would also go by the color picture.

    The numbers in the left hand corner layout are the pattern piece numbers, not the order in which they are put together.

    I think the numbers on the pieces are the way you sew it together. I am not positive but I did a few blocks that way for some other patterns and they came out fine. Try it! :)

    Is it Devonshire you want to make? Hit on her free patterns and it is in the advanced section.

    As it is an "Advanced" quilt pattern, perhaps someone thinks no instructions are necessary. If I wanted to make that quilt, I'd download the PDF, cut out the pattern pieces and experiment with them to see if I could figure out how they go together. I like to do that sort of thing ... it's like putting puzzle pieces together. Aside from that, I have absolutely no suggestions for you.

    Go back to Jenny's site, The name of the pattern is Devonshire, it is listed up on the top of the page just after where it said home. I When I clicked on the listings of all freebies there, I found the one I think you are looking for, there is also a download for it when you click on the pattern picture. Good luck.

    This looks like the traditional block that is called "Crossed Canoes". It sometimes has other names, and one of them is "Crossed Shuttles". If you can't find a piecing pattern for "Crossed Canoes", you could get a foundation pattern at this address: http://www.blockcentral.com/365-pp/3...sed_canoes.pdf

    There is a link to a video demonstration of how to do this block. It is a simpler version than Jinny Beyer's block, but may help you with the general idea. Apart from the foundation piecing of this block, called "Crossed Canoes" or "Crossed Shuttles", it is sometimes called "Dragonfly Block". Here is the link to the video of how to piece it: http://www.quiltblocklibrary.tv/tag/...s-quilt-block/ If you analyse the block carefully, you will see that it is only a four patch block.
