    I am working on a sampler and would really love to either have this in it or as a border. It's called a true lover's knot but I am having trouble finding the pattern that will print. http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/tr...uilt-block.htm If anyone can find a website or at least tell me what the right name for this block, I'd been very appreciative. Thanks!

    Did you try to download the pdf file? If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer, it should download for you. Perhaps you need the updated version.

    the pdf looks to be Paperpieced, except you have to sew the little A blocks onto the strip before PP???
    not very clear is it?

    draw it out on graft paper according to the size block you need. Use 1/4" grid paper.

    Pretty block. It goes together just like a log cabin block variation. By variation I mean that a couple of logs are composed of pieced strips, and the logs are not sewn strictly round and round in the same direction, but still it's a log cabin. Is the issue that you can't print the pdf, or you couldn't download the pdf, or it's the wrong size - or what?

    I didn't download it but printed it just fine from the site. When the block is on the screen, click advanced, click printer properties and then scale the block to 125% and print it out.

    Boy, you hit a bulls eye with that one! I, too, have printed out the .pdf of the block and the sampler!
    Thanks for the lead!!

    If all else fails perhaps I can mail you a copy. It is free so no problem.

    It is 5 strips wide around the center.

    Cut the center block 2 1/2" (2" finished) Cut all the strips 1 1/2 (finished 1") That will make your finished block 12"

    As dunster said, it will go together like a log cabin.

    Start in the middle dark, add light strips top, left side, bottom.

    Add dark strips top, left side. Add light right strip, dark bottom.

    Next is your pieced right strip, then light, top, left, bottom.

    Top pieced strip, light right, dark left & bottom.

    pieced right strip, then light, left, bottom, right, top

    Done
