    Name of pattern

    I'm looking for the name of this pattern - or the name of the block. It looks like granny squares set on point, alternating directions. I think it is a Kim Diehl pattern.

    It is stripes of different lengths in the centres like a pineapple with small squares. Around on point,
    Look up pineapple quilts etc

    Google image search took me to your picture:

    The quilter said it is a log cabin block. The bigger white square is the center of the log cabin with the 4 different colors surrounding it. I see 3 rounds around the center block, then sashing with a cornerstone.

    It is a chimneys and cornerstones block, which is a variation of a log cabin. Using different color placement can make this block look like a different quilt, as shown in the quiltinaday video. In this version, the quilter used sashing to match the logs it was sewn to, while in Eleanor's she used white sashing throughout with red cornerstones (much easier to do). You shouldn't need a pattern to make this quilt. There are lots of sites that show the block in different sizes. The harder part would be figuring out how to make the blocks so that you wind up with the same colors next to each other. If you use only 4 colors, as in your picture and in Eleanor's, it will work out easily, but if you want a scrappier quilt with more basic colors there will be some figuring to do.

    One of the comments to the photo described this - but I couldn't see it! After your reply I went back & turned my computer to the side - viola!

    Kim Diehl, Simple Seasons: Stunning Quilts and Savory Recipes. Pattern is called Taffy Pull. The flicker.com picture in your link has solid white squares, while Kim's pattern appears to have a four patch or longer strip lengths in place of the large white square.

    Leathe flea is right. I watched this video and even though I have been quilting for over 30 years, I still picked up a few 'pointers'.

    I just watched the video, looks like a great quilt and the way she does it, pretty easy to make.

    Courthouse steps does not have the cornerstones. I looked on Quilterscache..and found a tutorial for the main block. I tried to 'see' that block but could not figure out how they got them placed. I was thinking the nine patch was the center, but in THIS quilt, the middle of the nine patch is the sashing...

    Please excuse my wiggly lines! The middle of the small nine patch is actually the cornerstone in the sashing...I hope this clears up the confusion. I HAD to figure it out..it was going to HAUNT me all day! I think I now have this on my bucket list. Wouldn't it be a great Christmas quilt?
