    Pretty but I do not recognize it. Simple to do with strips and squares that are "snowballed" on the strip ends.

    Don't know the name, but it's a 9 patch layout. Interesting with the elongated format.

    You are so clever! This looks easy-peasy but I was trying to make it hard, I guess. Thank you for this layout.

    I know many blocks off the top of my head, but not this one. Really pretty layout, though, and simple to make. Thanks for sharing it!

    It's an impressive layout that creates an unique secondary design.

    Just two blocks ... the one that PaperPrincess created and the mirror image of it.
    A perfect scrappy quilt that goes way beyond the scrappy look.

    Outstanding quilting that amps its impressiveness up another notch (or six!!)

    Amazing how such a simple block can look so interesting. I like this layout.

    Paper Princess has the right idea, but too many seams for my liking. To elongate the middle also, I'd do it this way, and as others have said, the alternate block has to be the mirror image:

    I'm posting this again because the previous pic is a little blurry. The ends of the horizontal strips can just be snowballed to achieve the effect of the quilt

    I'm with you Nan. Less seams is always better...and just think of all those wonderful little HST's you get when you snowball the corners. Those are great in a border or as an accent in the backing.

    thanks btiny, PP, and Barb. Sure wish I knew the correct name of it, though, so I can name it right in my EQ

    Unique, pretty quilt! Love the way it looks "curved" without the curved seam. Thank you for making the diagram for us.

    This was my impression of the quilt also. I love the colors. Guess we all want to make one now! Thanks for adding to my list.

    I don't know the name of the quilt but the quilt is beautiful and the quilting enhances the block. Can't wait to read futher down to see what the name is. Pretty colors.

    Can you give the measurement of the finished 9 patch block?
