Default What IS the name of this block?

There are so many knowledgable, talented people here that maybe someone can help.
This is a 10.5" BOM by AZPatch for June 2000 - the month and year my youngest was born. It was called Victorian Magnolia, but I canot find a free online 12.5 " pattern by that name. And my math skills are very rusted.
Any help will be appreciated!
Terry

I think you may find it difficult to make a 12.5 (12" finished block). I would interpret it as 9 patch with sashing and a green cornerstone. If you look at it as a single block, it's a 7X7 patch which would be difficult to do as a 12 inch block without really strange measurements. would you settle for a 14" (finished) block? If so, the small squares would finish at 2".

Kind of looks like a variation of a Bear's Paw to me.

There is a Pink Magnolia block that looks very similar and it give instructions for sizes 8", 9", 10" and 12"......look at it on www.MultiPatch.com. Hope that helps, Terry!

This one has all the same pieces--just different colors and is called Pink Magnolia: http://www.multi-patch.com/html/pink...a_pattern.html

each square would have to finish at 1 3/4" This would make it a bit more than a 12" finished block but near. or unfinished square at 2" which is certainly doable

Here are the instructions to make it 12" finished size. The math isn't as funky as I thought it was going to be: capture.jpg

Maybe my math is off, but this is what I'm coming up with:

If each strip is 2-1/4
Then each strip would 'finish' to 1-3/4 -> 1-3/4 = 7/4
Seven times 7/4 = 49/4 = 12-1/4
The squares - as I figure it - would end up finishing at 12-1/4 inches

The rectangles in the center plus the center square would finish to 12 inches
1-3/4 + 5-1/8 + 5-1/8 = 12

I don't think it would go together very well with the dimensions given

Perhaps make a test block and prove me wrong?

i think paper princess may be right on the math but it can be done with some work. here is an adaptation.
http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CrossandCrownBlock.html

or to adapt this block pattern you could make the center strip/square at 2.5"unfin(2" fin) and the other six sections are cut at 2.25"uf (1.75"f). this would get you to 12.5"uf block
