    Just HAD to show you guys this. I found this pattern last night about 10:00 -- stayed up till midnight trying it out!!!! Hint: the picture of her pattern shows squares in the wrong place...I had to go to the written word and follow that. That's hard to do when you're a "visual" type of person!!! Anyway, this is out of scraps...now I'll probably not find something I like to make it with!!! Oh - the pic makes my carpet look mauve....it's not!!! It's beige! Here's the website where I found it: http://www.freequilt.com/amishquilts.html It's called "Amish boxes"

    Here's a hint....looks like 1 block of 4 in the center...but there's actually 2 4-blocks. The picture makes it look like 1 4 block with longer pieces on the side....but you actually put the longer pieces on the top and bottom of the 4-block........GEEZE, that THAT make sense?????? and yes, it WAS fun!!! Otherwise, I wouldn't have been up till midnight!!!! LOL

    I looked that block up---and was struck by how oddly it was assembled. I like your way better, it looks simpler to do. Beautiful block, btw. Hope to see the whole quilt soon. :thumbup:

    Not really....just sewing blocks together in the right order!! Give it a try! Be sure to use light and dark fabrics to get the best "OOMPH"!! :thumbup:

    Thanks for sharing. Your picture makes sense for how to assemble it. Their picture and instructions confused me!

    A beautiful block with great fabrics. It looks like a painting in a very sophisticated room setting.

    I broke the pattern down so you could possible see the squares/blocks. I can not wait to try this one either.

    Yes, I saw it your way once you gave the hint about the 2 four patches! Then I saw the rectangles on the top and bottom of them! Very easy that way! Also looks like you could piece it as 4 log cabin blocks too!
