I took a couple of pictures that I think will help people understand what I mean by "Quarter Log Cabin Block". With this block and picture to follow, you can put together a quilt like this without a real pattern. However if you want a commercial pattern, it is available from:
www.ericas.com Pattern # 29420

Hope this helps everyone whose been asking for more information. Glad you all have enjoyed my quilt. I will attach a copy of it as well so you have a picture to follow for setting your blocks together.

How wide are your strips? I cannot see the marks on your ruler.

I think the width of the strips is optional. I used 2.5" strips for mine.

I love this Quilt pattern, and bought it! SO where were you when I needed you :lol: I love your colors in this, it only gives the 'look' if you do it just so. 8-)
