    I've found a free pattern, on Jinny Beyer's site, that I'd like to make for my brother and SIL. Only problem is, there is a pattern, but there are no instructions on how to put the block together. Can anyone assist me on this?

    Picture of quilt/block.

    Man -- I have no idea!! And that's a tough looking block! Try writing her....the tech that puts in the pictures for the web might have just missed the instructions.

    That block would scare me to death. It sure is pretty, though.

    At the top of that website screen is a FREE PATTERNS link. Click that, then select Devonshire under the Advanced heading and you'll see the pattern pieces.

    Go to your site, click the free patterns, under hard(my word) and click Devonshire. That's the name of the pattern. Hope this helps. Beautiful pattern.

    Sew two 3's together. Then sew 2 to the joined 3's and add a 4. Do this step twice. Unit 1
    Sew the two 1's together. Sew a 2 to each side of the joined 1's and add the two 7's. Unit 2
    Sew two 8's to each 6 and add a 5 and 4 to two of them. Unit 3 with the 4 & 5. Unit 4 without.
    Now join unit 1 to unit 3 and unit 4 twice
    You will have two seams with kinks in them to add unit 2 between these two pieces.

    I looked at it like it was a paper-pieced pattern and here's my best shot. [#] corresponds to the numbers on the template pieces

    1) Sew two [1] together (or fold fabric before cutting)
    2) Sew [2] to each side of the [1] unit
    3) Sew two [3] together (or fold fabric before cutting)
    4) Sew [3] on each side of [1/2] unit
    5) Sew [8] on each of [6]
    6) Sew [5] on left side of [6/8] unit
    7) Sew [4] on right side of [6/9/5] unit
    8) Sew [2] to [7]
    9) Sew [6/8/5/4] unit to each side of [2/7] unit
    10) Sew [6/8/5/4/2/7] unit to each side of [1/2/3] unit

    Or you could enlarge the tempate diagram and treat itlike a paper piecing pattern.

    I think it's gorgeous. I may just have to try it. Thanks.

    Thanks, everyone. The numbers in the diagram, I think, are for identification purposes for cutting. I was looking for the detail that Bluphrog and dungeonquilter provided. Very special thanks to both of you. I had emailed the website, but the response I got was that they just provide the template, not instructions for constructing the block.

    I found it. Click on the website (first one you sent us). Then click on free patterns. The pattern you showed (if it is the first picture) is in Advanced and called Deveonshire. Let me know if you still need something :-).

    I'd do it from the outside in... LOL.

    If I were making this (and I might someday), I would start by piecing the 6 & 8 triangles together, making 4 of them,

    then putting on the "border" for them (the 4 & 5)

    Then I would make the two 3 & 2 triangles

    Attach the large 4,5,6,8 triangles to the 3& 2 triangles.

    Make the 7, 2,1 wedge and then attach the other 2 sides.

    Yes, you will have to deal with a very wide Y-join in 4 places, but it's doable.

    Or I would foundation piece the entire thing.

    VERY GOOD INSTRUCTIONS......Take these and apply it to the diagram in the upper left hand corner of the pattern pieces.

    Jinny Beyer is a famous "hand piecer". She can turn out quilts done completely by hand faster than most people can do them with a machine. Hand piecing makes doing those inset seams & oddball shapes easier but the time spent cutting out the templates and fabric and marking points is way more tedious than I want to deal with. She does have other patterns that are more machine friendly.

    Even paper piecing this one would be challenging.

    A lot of her patterns are paper pieced. I would try that way first. Or like someone else said, write and ask.

    Starting in the center with no. 1's sew them together, then follow with no. 2's and keep adding according to the number and you should be able to make the block. What puzzles me is, what colors to use? Two, three or more?
