    I saw this pattern and my little guy is really in love with it- any one have any idea what it is called or where I can find it
    I can probably figure it out but wanted to check first

    I love this quilt. I don't have the pattern but I don't think it would be too hard to figure out. Later today or tonight I will play with my EQ7 to see if I can. If I do figure it out, I will pm you. That is for sure go high on my to do list. Thanks for sharing the picture.

    You can make it by sewing WOF strips together (pale, light blue, medium blue, dark purple (as shown on my monitor)). Then you cut triangles out so that half of the triangles have the pale at the top and the other half have the dark purple at the top. You then sew 4 together to make a block.

    I've got the ruler at home that makes it easier to do this, but can't recall the name of it off hand.

    I love the purples of the one above. Don't know what the name may be.

    I just did some googling and found that the ruler I'm thinking about is the strip tube ruler. This type of block could be done with a regular ruler, but using the special triangle ruler helps line everything up better for easier cutting.

    Whew, it took my breath away. Blue is my favorite color and this one is striking. I think you could figure it out easy enough.

    I'm attaching a diagram that may help explain what I posted earlier.

    Make sure when using a ruler that does not have blunt tip and/or "line" across the tip of the ruler, that you let the tip of the ruler hang over the edge of the fabric for the seam allowance. I forgot to show that in the diagram.

    Looks to me to be a log cabin block cut through the diagonal. Half the blocks start with a light center and graduate out and half with a dark center that graduates out. Looks a little like "outside the box" by Toadusew?

    i saw this quilt on ebay or at least one like it. the pattern is easy to duplicate. the strips appear to be 2.5" unfinished, 2" finished. there are 16 blocks in this quilt. looking at the border strips, start with the purple/black (inside square) and end with the lighter purple (outside stripe), you would make 8 blocks. the other 8 blocks are made opposite, start with the lighter purple (inside square) and end with the purple/black as outside strip. this is similar to a log cabin block strip pattern.

    once your 16 blocks are made, you would cut them in half diagonally and pair opposite halves together, sew & make new blocks. lay the blocks out per the quilt block layout and add your borders. presto you have this quilt.

    the blocks in this quilt are netting out (by my calculations per stated quilt size 67x67)to about 11.25"-11.5" which means 2.5" about strips were used to make the blocks.

    try using some practice fabric to make two strip blocks, cut them and remake the new block. the rest would be easy to do.

    this purple quilt is really striking in its simplicity. if it is the one from ebay, the seller does good work with her patterns. i like her chasing goose quilt and will make something similar. when you get a chance, take a look at some of her other quilts.
