    Kind of looks like a "Lazy Daisy" adaptation...probably has another name. That is the first thing I thought of. Pretty quilt!

    This isn't my photo. I found it on the web and I love the block/pattern. I've seen this pattern twice and each time I love it more so I thought I would ask here to see if anyone knows.
    Thanks for any help!

    I'm sure it's some type of Kaleidoscope but I can't seem to wrap my head around it. It almost looks paperpieced.
    All I know is that I love it and want/need it! Any help anyone can provide is greatly appreciated!

    I don't know the name of the block, but it would be super easy to make it paper pieced, even if that particular one wasn't done as such.

    I agree that it is probably a paper pieced pattern. Each of the four points of the star would be a square and then 4 would get sewn together.

    Actually, i think the star is a secondary pattern. I'm pretty sure that the blocks are the 'ray' blocks, and how they come together forms the star at the intersections. And I'd paper-piece it, too, so I know all my seams line up!

    I think I've seen it before but don't know the name. I think if you study the block you could probably make your own pattern. Maybe cut a square and start folding until you have it. It may take more than one attempt. I have figured out blocks from pics this way.

    Looks like a variation (it's rays are wider) of the Endless Chain block. http://www.quilterscache.com/E/EndlessChainBlock.html

    You have to play with the lines until you get what you want.It would make a neat Paper pieced block.I forgot,i see you have to make another park besides the 1 1/2 mark.I see from the picture the squares are pretty big.

    That's the block I linked to a couple posts up. Where did you get the photo you posted, cookiej? Surely the people in the pic (or on the site where you got it) know what the pattern is.

    Can anybody figure out how much fabric you would need for this using the above scenario - looks to be 5x5 and it is a 12" finished block. Would a layer cake work or fat quarters? I don't have any version of the EQ's or maybe I could figure it out.
