Default What are these gorgeous blocks?!?

What are the names of the gorgeous blocks used in this quilt? Alice PD posted on the board in August asking about the blocks. I saw her post and just love the blocks and quilt. Have not had any luck in locating them. Can you help me find them?

Gorgeous quilt! I can see why marking it was a tedious chore. I am astounded at how straight your lines are.

I wish it was mine! Alas, someone else pieced and quilted it - the link is to the quilter's site. I would like to make something similar and am looking for the pattern for the two blocks.

Wow Holice! Your quilting design is absolutely stunning! Congrats on it being accepted!!

Dee Dee, I looked thru the blog you posted. The blocks are her own design. Maybe you can email her and asked if she's published the pattern or will share with you.

Grab some graph paper and draw the block out. But checking with her first would be polite.

The blocks look like an adaptation of the carpenter's wheel. (but with a snowball instead of a star on the inside). I ended up with a similar block to frame an applique on one of my quilts. The quilting is gorgeous on this one.
