    Please tell me the name of this block

    Although I didn't use a pattern, this block is so simple it must have a name already. Can you enlighten me? Thanks!

    Kind of looks like one block from the Yellow Brick Road quilt pattern.

    Thanks. I googled them both. They are similar and yet slightly different. Did I actually invent it? Doubt it!!

    It's for the quilt that I'll be sending to Ro for the homeless Vets in NY state. I was able to arrange the blocks to make a pretty cool pattern. I thought the fly fishing fabric was appropriate for a man. I'll post pics when it's all done. I plan 2 borders, blue and white. Then a blue striped back pulled to the front for a binding.

    This is actually a great block for groups to make. My on-line charity group made them for a retreat and they all went together beautifully and they made over 75 quilts in a weekend! This designer said she used EQ originally and just called it a Three-Patch Quick Block:

    Here she shows lots of layout alternatives (scroll down and see the designs):

    Thanks Kathy but mine is still a smidge different!! I have that 3 patch and then I added an additional rectangle spanning the bottom (or top). If memory serves, each block is 12 1/2" square.

    I love the link which shows all the ways the blocks can be arranged. I had no idea how I would lay this one out. I just made the blocks, laid them on the floor and moved them around. Hubby actually came up with the arrangement I will using. It's like stairs almost.

    My guess is the Turning 20 or Turning 21 block.

    Don't know the name, looks easy to make. It would make a fast quilt.

    I agree with ManicaQuilter2. It looks like one of the blocks in the Yellow Brick Road Pattern.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    No idea on name but it looks as if it would make a few different designs.

    My stitch group calls it the ANYTIME BLOCK. Typically 6-8" block. New at posting so hope this gets to the board !

    You did just fine crispins! The Anytime block? That's a fine name. I knew I didn't invent a brand new block.

    There used to be one called 3,6,9, as in 3 inch, 6 inch and 9 inch pieces that form the block, but I haven't seen that one mentioned since the turning 20 and yellow brick road patterns came out.
