    Nope.
    Nor is it the Corn and Beans (that name cracks me up).
    Or set with on-point blocks.

    This particular rendition requires a whole floral patch that is NOT made up of 4 squares or triangles.
    Look again at the diagram in post 11.

    Yes, you can do it that way - and that is the way it appears, but it's easier to do it as 4 4patch blocks.

    Batik Waves makes more sense to me. The Corn and Beans one I posted about has something missing-this one has the 2 rows of triangles (HST's). Block appears to be set on point.

    Our small group made this kind of a quilt for our Christmas Fundraiser for our Quilt Guild. We used all scraps. We had templates for the half square triangles. Started with a 9" square, one light and one dark. Cut each once on the diagonal then put all the lights in a bag and all the darks in a bag pulled one from each bag and paired them together, then sew a quarter in seam on the cut side, then cut 2) 2 3/8" strips one will have a seam and one piece left for the large triangle this will give all the pieces to make on block. I will see if I have the directions still and maybe a photo of our completed quilt.

    Then it would have a totally different effect with these fabrics - very dumbed down.

    And if those floral blocks had been cut up, I doubt KarrynneStorm (op) would have even had to post the question as it would be obvious HOW the blocks were pieced.

    The genius in this version - and kudos to Jenny - is that the construction is camouflaged, and by using a larger scale print (whole) - the movement from block to block - or even patch to patch - is very subtle.

    After admiring the overall effect, you keep squinting at it and tilting your head thinking it's pieced one way, but then you notice it can't be and you look for another way.
    Just look at all the suggestions on this thread.

    That would not be the case if you made up the floral block from smaller patches.

    If you look at all the majority of C&B and Batik Waves and OceanWaves (different but same concept as the C&B) blocks, they all have med to high contrast between the patches.
    It allows them to join like fabric to give the appearance of a larger block.

    I think the pattern may be called Northwinds. I would share my PDF file not a real pattern but it is fairly easy to understand. Michelle in Omaha.

    Well for what it is worth, here is another way to do Corn and Beans that differs from Quilters Cache and gives the solid block look if the colors are carefully matched. Pattern is found as August 1, nancy martin's perpetual calendar "365 quilt blocks a year". I have two of these calendars so if you want this page, PM and i'll tear it out or scan it for you and mail it. I have made a quilt using these patterns, True and relatively easy though it took me two years because of the number of pieces in it. Not this pattern however, though it seems to have about the same number of pieces.

    What about blooming 9 patch? One of the gals in our guild did one that kind of reminded me of this picture.

    At first, I thought perhaps this layout was on-point with diagonal HST sashing; although after sketching it out I found that is just an illusion. I believe it is a combination of 4-patch blocks, and half-square triangle 9-patch blocks; where the 9-patch HSTs are every other block, and every other row alternates between the floral 4-patches and hand-dyed 4-patches. Although I think I'd prefer the floral 4-patches not to be; I'd rather full-size squares and wrote the instructions below that way. It's not as difficult as it looks.

    Fabrics: For each coordinating fabric color family, choose two hand-dyed solids and one medium-size floral print.

    Cutting: Define a full-size square measurement dependent upon desired final dimensions & quantity of rows/columns.
    Of each floral fabric, cut one full-size square, and eight quarter-size squares (for half-square triangles).
    Of each solid fabric, cut ten quarter-size squares (two for four-patches, and eight for half-square triangles).

    Layout: Arrange the cut blocks into rows alternating full-size floral squares and paired solid four-patch squares; also place the remaining quarter-size squares near its matching fabric, then pair-up each with a neighboring solid/floral pair.

    Construction: Take care to keep the laid out color arrangements in order along the way.
    Stack, sew, press a single four-patch for each quarted-size solid fabric pair, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew, press the quarter-size solid/floral pairs into half-square triangles, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew, press the half-square triangles into 9-patches, and return them to the layout.
    Stack, sew and press, blocks into rows, then repeat sewing paired rows until the quilt-top is completely constructed.

    After tooling around on the internet awhile, I found this weblink http://gnomeangel.com/category/arts-...ing-triangles/ of a quilter who took Jenny's class. If you scroll to just above the half-way mark of the page, you'll see photos of how it's laid out.

    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

    when I made mine it was called 'corn and beans'. In Monique Dillard's book 'Fat Quarter Winners', it is 'spades'......

    Wow. That's awesome.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I have responded twice to this thread and I am determined this will stay on my to do list until I have one done in batiks. I am giving my third thought on what I think it is, and I believe I have found it. This pattern was published in 2001.

    Hi NanaC,
    Here is my rendition of Sunshine and Shade by Mabeth Oxenreider. It doesn't appear to me to be the same as the OP's picture, but this may give you some ideas for your own project.

    It is really odd to see someone writing a pattern for my original design. It is original - not Corn and Beans or North Wind. In fact I hunted many block encyclopaedias to see if it had been done before. It is not made on point either.

    I am not sure how I feel about seeing it written up like this when I am currently writing a book about it - though I am thrilled with the level of interest. That is promising for my Shimmer book!

    The pattern above is not quite right as you do not allow enough for the half square triangles.

    Please though - before you write up patterns for someone else's quilts - why not check with the maker? I have a website with a contact link.

    On the plus side though - if you make one I would love it for the book! You can search for my website, and click the contact link. I am pretty good at answering when I am home in Australia.
