    Neat. They're fun with four sides too.

    you would need to contact Helene Knott & see if she is offering her pattern for free- most commercial patterns are not free- you may be able to find a block like she uses & incorporate it into a quilt you design- but if you want to use one of Helen's patterns you will have to buy it unless she is offering it free.

    Check out magazines and/ their websites. I've seen this technique somewhere --- was it Quiltmaker? And I am going to see about the pattern. $$$ for our time and energy in developing a pattern are always much appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure there's a pattern like this on Quilter's Cashe. I'll see if I can find it.

    Ghostie ... that pattern looks like a perfect pattern for Stonehenge?

    There is nothing difficult or 'special' about making this block.
    Just sew your two chosen fabrics together in strips and use a right angle ruler to cut the shapes from the strips. You can make the block any size you want to just by moving the point of the triangle ruler and altering the size of the strips.

    This might help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BBgk...eature=related Also Missouri Star quilt co has something similar, I think they use 3 different fabrics... same concept. Now I have more on my to-do list *SIGH* so many projects so little time.

    Great pattern! I think it'd look nice with the Stonehenge line of fabrics.

    Helene Knotts Patterns are all still in print. She is my friend and teacher. She has a one person show at Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum In Tillamook, Oregon. I just bought the MAGIC SQUARES yesterday at the show. I can tell you that it is not made the way Jan suggested, although it is a great suggestion. For about $9 the pattern is yours and you can make many versions of the quilt. This particular quilt pattern has never been offered as a free pattern.

    Not sure it is exactly the same version, but Missouri Star has a tutorial. Of course you can cut your own fabric rather than using precuts.

    I purchased my pattern for Magic Squares. It is a small price to pay for the time and effort that goes into producing a pattern. The fabric quantities is given for two quilt sizes and the cutting layout for the pattern is quite detailed to achieve the 3-D effect.
    QuiltE, I agree that the Stonehenge fabrics would be perfect for this quilt.

    Is there a relatively close source for this pattern (I live in Aberdeen, WA). Found it online but they want as much to ship almost as the cost of the pattern.

    Helene, like many other quilters, supports herself and family with her quilting--teaching, designing, competing. I think her patterns are reasonably priced and well worth paying for.

    When I posted my graphic of a way to cut this block, I meant no detraction from Helene's pattern. I agree that 'the laborer is worthy of her hire', in this case - the purchase of her pattern. To make the full quilt the way Helene designed it, if that's what the original poster wants to do, yes, she should buy the pattern. My post was only meant to show that this is an easy block....try setting it in a myriad of ways as I have done over the years.

    I apologize for stepping on any toes, especially those of Helene's wonderfully loyal and supportive friends and fans.

    Another way to make a simular looking block is to take a square, put sashing around it, make a second unit with the opposite colors. Then cut diagonally across both and restitch switching pieces.

    But to make such a stunning quilt and get the measurements right for all the sizes of blocks, buy the pattern.

    Just because you know how to construct a block doesn't mean you can put together a whole quilt.

    You could draft that block yourself, Its easy just decide how big you want the block and go from there.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.
