    That is one stunning block!!! I, too, will be watching for instructions on how to make it into a PP.

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    I was waiting for some of the more computer savy members to jump in and tell us about PP with graphics included but since it didn't happen YET I will show my ignorance by jumping in. The very easiest way is to let the EQ program divide the block into segments and just print out the PP pattern. If you don't have EQ, I can only tell you how I would do it. The block looks to me like it has two distinct segments. The corner pieces and the middle pieces. Graph the block the size you want the FINISHED block to be. Cut the segments apart and add a quarter seam allowance around the OUTSIDE of the segment. Paste as many segements as will fit on a piece of paper. Duplicate as many as you will need for your project. Where is Jan when you need her?

    I'm sorry I can't help with the name of the block, but the fabrics make it quite a stunning block. Have you tried quiltescache.com you might find it there.

    Thanks for the link,, but I wouldn't even attempt that block with those instructions...I need way more step bu step instructions and to "see" it as it goes together!

    This is a very beautiful block and I am thinking of a table topper, but then it should be about 20". Have any of you bright quilters an idea how to enlarge it in a way that I will be able to do that? I don't have EQ.

    Didn't know it's name (now I do) but it is one of the blocks I did in the Marcus Brothers Civil War Tribute quilt. It is done, if I remember correctly, with a partial seam which was a lot easier than I thought it would be. It's a beautiful block!
