    I hope this is the right place to post this. I went to a maple fesitval on Sunday and this quilt was there. No name or pattern name and would love to make this. It is hard to tell but the center piece is bigger (not all squares). Does anyone know where I can purchase this pattern from?

    Where the big squares meet it is a nine patch, looks like strips with with white squares are sewn in different lengths to form the big squares. It's a simple pattern but I don't know the name of it.

    A variation of a Irish Chain?

    It looks like courthouse steps, a variation of a log cabin block. maybe it's a single irish chain.

    I thought it was in Eleanor Burn's Quick Trip Book, but it's not. Same idea. Know I've seen it somewhere - just strips with squares. I know, it was in a magazine and you pieced it all the way across, one horizontal strip at a time. Don't have the magazine now. Sorry

    The block (the white X with 4 color sides) is a Chimneys and Cornerstones block. The sashing (the wide piece between the X blocks) uses 9-patches for cornerstones. Here's a Quilter's Cache's directions for Chimneys and Cornerstones: http://www.quilterscache.com/C/Chimn...onesBlock.html

    Scratch that - just realized the center block is a different size on the chimneys and cornerstones block.

    From the way the strips inside the blocks are cut and laying I'd say its a Courthouse Steps.

    Courthouse steps using a light square at the end of either the darks or the lights.

    Looks like an Irish Chain to me. The pattern is anyway. Sometimes the color choices result in a variation of the name.

    I believe it's a pattern from about five years ago named Vienna or Vienna Nights. I will look through my patterns.

    thanks QBquilts, I found my book called Chimney and corner stones by Linda Rydjord, a variation of log cabin. Old book no longer in print. PM me doodledo. :)

    Here's the link for Vienna Nights:http://jellyrolls2go.com/patterns/vienna-nights.html

    Eleanor Burns has a smaller/simpler version of it called Cornerstones of My Life in her Still Stripping After 25 years book.
