    Searching for this block!

    I found this block on pinterest. I tracked it back to the lady who made it. She said she found it in an old Quilters Newsletter magazine, but can't find the magazine. Does anyone here have any info on it? I would love to make it and just need to find the source. Thank you!

    what a fabulous block! i agree, would be fairly simple to draft, or, you can write to Quilter's Newsletter & ask them for the issue it was in & if they have it available for sale. this appears to be a original block, not traditional. they used to publish many original blocks in years past. i have subscribed to them since '86 & don't remember this block. but w all our moving around i am sure i missed more than a few issues please post again when you find out more about it?

    I too like the block. It opens up possibilities for creating other similar blocks. Ok, people who use EQ7 and design PP blocks what do you think? Can you come up with something?

    I am wondering if the house part of the block isn't pieced in a regular square block and then cut into segments with a degree ruler. It is then set into a sort of Drunkard Path block. Anyone have a house block laying around to try it?

    OK.......I found that picture I think on pinterest and it leads to a lady by the name of Chris Jurd. She has a blog but I couldn't find that picture; I looked at it going back to July 2012 and then I got a cramp in my thumb )
    Her is her blog where I left off http://chrisquilts.blogspot.ca/searc...&by-date=false

    She has amazing talents to say the least.

    To me it looks like a take on Franny's fan. It looks like it might be paper pieced, but you could do it with the blade for the fan, then applique it to the base and add the center piece.

    I remember seeing it in a quilt mag. Thought it might be Quilters Newsletter. I disposed of many books when I moved. I will have to check to see of I still have that edition.

    If you can find that lady that says it was in a quilter news letter ask her if she knows the year or number on the magazine as I have about 25 years of quilters news letters and I could look however I do not remember that exact pattern but somewhere in stacks and stacks of magazines I have one similar but it is appliqued and called house on a hill

    It is paper pieced. The maker of this block, Brenda Groelz, has PP books on Amazon.

    I dug out my copy of that issue just to see how it was made. Yes, paper pieced and the trick is to start each of the eight pieced wedges from the opposite end so the seams nest when you put them all together. Pretty smart idea. Directions (and yardage) are for both a 6" and a 9" block and it's rated as intermediate (skill level).
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".
