    What a lovely block -- the elongated block makes it easy. That will be a lovely block.

    This is what makes the QB so great. All these helping hands. I really like this block. Will be fun to see what the name is but for now...another on my bucket list! Thanks everyone!

    Beautifully done! I am not an "orange person" but your fabric could definitely change my mind.

    I think you are right KatieMar!
    Great Sherlock Holmes'ing!!!!

    I don't think there are any extra rows, as QuiltnNan suggests.
    Only that the alternate blocks are done in reverse colour/fabric placement.

    Whereas Quilterdale's photo has every block (group of four smaller blocks) the same
    and when they come together, that incredible secondary pattern shows up.

    Does anyone agree with me?

    Thank-you Nan for the visual for making the elongated block.

    I have a question and perhaps someone could help figure this for me, if you wanted the block to finish at 8". What would I make each rectangle and then what would the snowball's be? I'm so pattern dependent what comes easily for other's is most challenging to me.

    8" would make the measurements awkward.
    Not that you cannot do it ...
    ... but for me, I would go for something that is easier for me when measuring/cutting.

    Anything divisible 3 would work .... some size examples

    For each of the 1/4 sections as per the graphics given earlier,

    If the strips were cut at 1-1/2" and finish at one inch,
    then each of their lengths would be cut at 3-1/2" (3" finish)
    Your 1/4 section would finish at 3" square and four together would mean a 6" square.


    Starting with 2" strips finish at 1-1/2" ... length would be 5" and finish at 4-1/2"
    1/4 section block would finish at 4-1/2" square and the group of four finish at 9" square.


    2-1/2" strips finish at 2" ...... length would be 6-1/2" finish at 6"
    1/4 sections are 6" squares finished .... foursomes .... 12" squares finished



    At least I think I have the math correct on these ....
    ........ if not, I know someone will jump quickly and correct it all!

    Wow QuiltE thank-you, thank-you, so much. Your mathematical equations do make sense to me. Divisible by three..., well I'm off to make a sample using the last example.

    I guess I'm in a February mood to use red's and cream colors. I love the optical illusion of a curved block and realize there are probably oodles of layouts too.

    I wonder if this is a vintage block pattern?

    Thank-you Quilterdale for posting this thread, I just finished a "Checkered Dresden Plate" and was wanting to start another quilt then viola this pattern is fantastic!

    GramE yes, I agree w/ you about it being the same.

    Let's take care of the Earth, it is the only planet that for sure has Chocolate.

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    Thank you OnaEmtNest!!!!
    Your reds and creams will make a nice quilt and what a great way to use up an assortment of fabrics.
    You had asked about the snowballs .... Sorry, I forgot to answer that.
    They will be the same square of whatever width you go with for your strips.

    I'll look forward to seeing your Valentine's version of Mirror Mirror!

    However, what I would really like to see right now would be your Checkered Dresden Plate.
    Could you please give me a link? Thanks!

    QuiltE ~
    Thanks for the snowball corner clarification. The Checkered Dresden Plate is a Jenny Doan Tutorial. I'd never made Dresden plates, always wanted to. It was super easy, mine I used an array of Fall fabrics. I will let you know when I get it back from my Longarm Guy.

    Here's the link to MSQ tutorial... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbESQ4vMOiI

    OneEmtNest ... Thanks for the link. Now that I have had a sneak preview. you have me even more anxious to see yours. Especially being that I happen to like fall colours the best! Again, sorry I missed the snowballs first time round and glad it helped. Now you have me waiting to see your first block. Of course, you have nothing to do right now, as you wait for your Longarm Guy!!

    I agree, it has 3 rows to each block with 4 blocks connecting to form the design. The red and white quilt has the colors alternating in the blocks but she has another picture showing the colors all alike in the blocks which I like better.
    GeeGee
