Obviously it doesn't mean the same as on some forums as she can still post.

Thank you Barb. I'm glad you got a response, and now we know. Do you know the name of the second block with the box outline and four patch in the corners?

Hi, Dee Dee! I too fell in love with "Chocolate Cherry"! I e-mailed Delsey (sp?) and asked if there was a pattern available for sale. She responded "No there is no pattern available. Kindest regards." Bummer! But to me is looks like a variation on "feathered star" without all the feathers.

I was all geared up to modify until I saw in the directions that the Feathered Star requires set-in seams & I ain't that good yet! LOL!!!

The only difference I see is she used 4 patch units in the corners. Otherwise, it's the same. McCall's quilting is a great resource.

THANK YOU so much Jane!!! You don't know how this has been driving me crazy! LOL!!! Now to find fabric!

I agree. The Sunset Star pattern looks more simple. I've not read the directions. Hope it doesn't have set in seams!

Maggie, you are so right! The basic block is like the Royalty Block Variation from McCalls. The Center is treated like the Sunrise Star Block. So put the two of them together and that's the block!

YAY!!! It doesn't & seems fairly simple (I've only been piecing for a little over a year) but I understood all the pieces. The biggest challenge I think will be finding just the right fabric to do it justice! She substituted a 4-patch in the corners & looks like she lost a lot of her outer patches when when she squared up? This kinda scares me 'cos I'm a lousy squarer-upper! LOL!

Thank you! I thought I was right too & couldn't understand why no one was agreeing with me- ha ha! It definately looks like a cross between the two blocks!

I feel your pain! I've been quilting for awhile and am still a lousy squarer-upper. If you or anyone comes across the other block in the quilt, please let me know. I haven't found that one either.

I have been studying the picture & I think I have the second one figured out. I'll let you know after I try a practice block!
