# Thread: What IS the name of this block?

1. ## 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!

2. 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".

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

4. that's what I think

5. 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!

6. 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

7. 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

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

9. 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?

10. i think paper princess may be right on the math but it can be done with some work. here is an adaptation.

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

I think that would work

12. Here's a PFD of the block from EQ. There's an extra 1/16" that makes the difference. If it was me I'd be paper piecing the block, just because it's so precise. If you need a PDF of that let me know.

13. Lots of good advice. I am a Dakotan by birth and know this pattern as "Hands all around" in my area.

14. i am thrilled with all the responses! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

15. ## Paper piecing pattern for block

I put together a paper piecing pattern for this block. It will print on four pages and need some cutting and pasting. Instead of doing that, I print the first page four times - this will print four copies of the corners without any need to cut and paste. The center strip will still need to be cut and pasted or, since it's such an easy piece, you can just piece it conventionally.

Here it is:

16. I'm at work but I think if one of the EQ7 users out there check they'll find it in the library. I think it is a bear paw but the block has a different name but can't remember what.

17. Got it! Can't wait to show you, thanks

18. Thank you for posting the the PDF Lynda.

19. It's similar to a bear-claw but the bear would be pidgeon toed!!! LyndaOH's first PDF file is your best bet IMHO.

20. thank you for that web page . It has a lot of nice block to play with .

21. Try quilterscache.com they have a pattern that looks like this and it is called Tea Rose, you may find what you are looking for on there. Good Luck

22. I do not see blocks at this web site but property for sale. Please try again.

23. I thought of Carolina Lily, but it looks like lots of others

24. This is a 7x7 layout. If your flying geese finish at 1.75 x 3.5 and your central central block and white bars finish at 1.5 inches, you would have a 12 inch block.

Much easier to do as a 14" block.
