Default need help - block was framed up

Hi, I'm really not sure how to explain what I'm looking for, but here goes. I need a picture (or pattern) of the way a block was framed up. The block sq was, I think plain, white, maybe. It was outlined with jelly roll strips, but not even,staggered. I don't know if I'm explaining well. I thought I saved a picture, but for the life of me, can't find it. I'm sorry I sound confusing, but if I could explain more, then I could figure it out-lol-Anyone have any idea what I'm looking for?

Not much to go on, can you sketch it out? I'm sure someone here could identify it.

Was it a curved Log Cabin?

I think I remember one like you described. The one I am thinking has the surrounding strips probably in 2 pieces to go around each side of square. Rather than to fit they were extended and put on with a partial seam. So it was width of square plus the one side strip. Hope that makes as much sense to you as it does in my head

Was it something like this? It was made based on an idea for using 5" charm squares I think, but I made it out of a bunch of squares. I can find the original thread (think it was by Moira??), but this is what my project looked like.

Maybe a little more explanation would help us to help you. can you find a picture in a quilt magazine or draw out the block and put a picture on this board? Good luck to you

I found a picture. It's not the original picture I liked, but I think it's like cjsews describes. Each block has a 2 1/2 in strip around, starting with a partial seam. All the strips are the same length, if the block is square.
I am wanting to use the strips around the outer edge of sayings and bible verse sqs and rectangles. I will group using 3 (2 sq and a rectangle per set block or 4 sqs to a set block, before I surround it with the 2 1/2 inch strips. I hope you understand and are still with me.
I will separate the 2 sqs and rectangle, or the 4 squares, with a narrow strip in order for them all to fit. These strips will be 1 3/4 between the sqs and 1 1/4 between the 2 sqs and rectangle. Will it matter? Will it look odd?
I am trying to group them 3 and 4 in a block measuring about 10 1/2 or 11 inch before I surround with the 2 1/2 inch strips. Will it look odd if the strips separating the verses are a different size?

Iceblossom that is one pretty quilt, in bright colors like I am fond of.

Jordan and toverly, this is not a wise crack, so please don't get offended.
However, it's so simple, if I could have remembered how to sketch it or had a picture of what I wanted, I would know how to do it. Most of the times I can figure things out by a picture, I just couldn't find one. I just remembered it framed up each block and the strips were staggered or off set.

Thank all of you for helping.I will try to take a picture when I get started, so you can see what I fail to explain very well.
