    you're right, nanabirdmo.

    you'll notice that a lot of pattern designers use traditional blocks, then name the quilt/pattern based on the fabrics they used, the intended purpose for the project, or on some other [often] unrelated reason.

    Right on the button Patrice, It's what ever you decide to name the quilt, Your choice in colors, layout, and size. A traditional block, but your choices.
    So it's the CREATOR's decision on what to name it. Beautiful Quilt and Beautiful work.

    Really cute! The red centers make it traditional courthouse steps and I just love the baby fabrics.

    Curious minds want to know. How big was each little block? How big is the total little quilt? Did you paper piece it or traditional piecing? Like I said, curious?

    Your work is wonderful. Your quilt is beautiful, as always! I have to go copy it now!
    :lol:

    That is very nice!! I think the bright little squares in each of the centers & on the border just set it off beautifully.
