    I found this in an old quilt calendar. It shows how to assemble it, but not how to arrange the blocks. There is no web site for the author of the calendar. Thanks in advance for any info or advice. :-)

    I've seen other blocks with this name. EQ6 has one also, but nothing like this one.

    I have that same calendar, only I just got mine. One thing you might do is take it and make several copies of that page. Cut them out and experiment with a layout that looks good to you.

    Barb and BJ, Thanks! :)

    I knew someone here would know. I had searched several block sites and never could find it.

    Thank you very much :!: :!: :!:

    Tiff~, The calendar is called Nancy J. Martin's perpetual calendar, 365 Quilt Blocks A Year.

    Actually, I have 2 of them, bought about 5 years apart. Hubby got the first one for me. After that, I looked for a new vesion and couldn't find one. Then last year, I found the second one at Books a Million. I didn't realize until I got it home that it was an exact duplicate! Duh

    So I gave one to my daughter-in-law and asked that ALL family birthdays, anniversarys, ect. be put in this.

    What an excellent idea! I've always wanted to get this calendar and I do believe I have come up with an excuse as to why this needs to fit into my budget. ;)

    They say it's not currently available, but with all this info, you can probably find it a Deep Discount.com or Amazon.com.

    http://www.booksamillion.com/ncom/books?id=4027479882110&isbn=156477273X

    Let me know if you can't find one and I will try to help.
    :)

    Here is the one on quilters cache. Page 3 shows how it looks put together. I stumbled upon this one the other night and added it to my ever growing to do list.

    I made the quilt on my bed with this block, did mine in burgundy/black/white. The block is called "Interlaced Block" at least that was the name of it when I made it. :) It's on quilters cache in the 22 inch block category. :)

    Shadow Dancer, I LOVE your quilt! It turned out perfect. I wish I had seen yours before I made mine. Will post a pic of mine tomorrow. Thanks so much. The links from all of you have been very helpful.

    :-)

    I think its a border corner block. Blocks that would go in between would be straight lines that would line up with this block...Don't know if this is clear. I hope I answered your question.... Maxine

    Hey SD--that's a crisp quilt!! Such stunning colors. Now I can't picture it with anything else. :D

    That's an interesting square.

    Ok, last summer before I got all this great info, I made 16 of these blocks without knowing how they should be assembled. I ended up sashing mine. Also the colors are brighter than the pics show. Nummy posed for the second one. :)

    Thank you for your curiosity, in2stitchin. I will certainly add this pattern to my "must do" list. And, Shadow, your rendition of this pattern is absolutely stunning.

    too many ideas, too little time
