    Looking for name of this block

    Anyone know the name of this block? Every time I go into this store, this pillow calls to me....

    They look like paper pieced cactus flower-try googling free paper piecing patterns-I forget which designes I found something like this under but there were a ton of patterns there. Good luck

    If the store has an online site, it might be listed, with a name.

    They have an online presence, but it's a regional chain and there's no info about the displays in each store. The employees don't know what it is, apparently the employee who made it no longer works there.

    I'm pretty sure it's the Mexican Star pattern.
    Got fabric?

    According to Barbara Brackman it's a Tennessee Tulip (Bets Ramsey design 1981) . Looks like it's been slightly modified here, which is not uncommon in quilted items that have been imported, as this pillow may have been.

    Okay, you all want a good laugh? I can't believe I did this. I'm just too stupid to live. Not only did I know the name of this block (Cross and Crown), I'VE ALREADY MADE AN ENTIRE QUILT FULL OF THESE BLOCKS! Back in October 2010!

    The pillow in the store must have been saying, "remember me, remember me".

    LOL. Funny! Here is a link from Quilterscache.com for the pattern. I love that pillow and the coloring.

    I think that's why the pillow "was calling you", lol! Sounds like something I'd do. That pillow has the blocks turned on point, and that often throws me off, too. They aren't on point in the quilt you made. (It's true, and a good excuse--run with it!)

    It's certainly some sort of flower, but I don't know which one

    I'm sure that is what it was saying. Or maybe, "You already did a better version of this pattern." Thank you for sharing it.

    What a beautiful quilt! No wonder you were drawn to that pillow.

    It's not exactly Cross and Crown. I made up a PDF from EQ for you.

    No problem, Peggi! Is there a way I can export the block in EQ? That way you can play with the size.

    Well, you can export it, but I don't think there's a way you can save it as an attachment to this board. It would have to be a file you can either email directly, or save to a central location that we can both access. However, I've already recreated it in EQ using your pdf, so no worries!

    I love it! It shows that you do truly like this block. Also, I think your quilt is wonderful.
