    Pattern Identification

    My grandson saw this online and sent it to me to make for him. I think I need a pattern and need help identifying it. Anyone know this pattern and where I might get it? Thanks so very much.Name:  Quilt.jpg

    Don't know, sure would like to get that pattern too - like I NEED another project for my bucket list - at this rate I'm going to have to make quilts until I'm 200 - sigh.

    It is a pattern. Ask him if he can go back to the web site where he saw it and perhaps there will be a link.

    This is close but not quite right: Simply Stripes
    by NANCY MAHONEY
    Fabric courtesy of P&B Textiles
    Contemporary flair! Just two fabrics were used in this striking lap quilt to create an overlapping block design.
    Skill level: Intermediate/Advanced
    Block size sewn into quilt: 8" x 8"
    Number of blocks: 36
    Finished quilt size: 60" x 60"

    I found it on: http://www.thequiltermag.com/issues/...er/index.shtml

    I'll keep looking to see if I can find one exactly like the one he is requesting.

    divide each 'square' into quarters - only the center one needs four quarters.
    If you start at the outside, you'd make a block with three quarters of one block, plus one quarter from the next block.
    (does that make any sense?!?!)

    it is a very simple pattern to make but you need a design wall to keep the blocks straight!! each block is 1/4 of the full center square and you lay out the blocks row by row. start at the bottom left block.....2 blocks with the same colors....next 2 blocks are the same...etc. second row from the bottom left....1st block is the repeat of row 1, next 2 blocks are a new color pattern....etc. the finished quilt looks very complicated but it is very easy!!!! just be sure to use that design wall. I know there are free patterns out there but I don't have time to look.....it is a 1/4 log cabin style block.....this is a scrappy style as it looks like each block is a different color....have fun!!

    This is similar, but not exactly the same.

    Candi and auntpiggylpn: Thank you so much! This was just driving me crazy. I knew I had seen this a while back but for the life of me could not figure out where!! Should have known it was right here all this time.

    A free pattern "Kona Squares" uses bright colors as in your photo, and a pattern called Shade Cascade
    shown the assembly It' s by Karen Combs. Also there is a pattern Shaded Log Cabin if you're willing to spend 8 dollars or so.

    I am making a black and red quilt for my son using these instructions. I think "thinking outside the block" is my favorite pattern.

    Oh boy - another one to add to my to-do list. It's beautiful!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    THIS IS IT...go to the link and you will find that exact picture of the quilt....another on my hoping to do list ...TYVM...lol

    AND I already have a family of 17 fabrics for it...been waiting for a pattern to jump out at me for those fabrics
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Oh my gosh! That is a great quilt. I love the pattern and it says it is easy. It does not look easy! But it is a great optical illusion of stacked blocks! Let's all see your finished quilt for your grandson. He has good taste!
