Thread: Do you know if this is a real quilt, or the name of the block?

    This is a picture of a 1000 pc puzzle, but I love the quilt depicted on the bottom portion. Have you ever seen a quilt like this in a book before? Or even the block?

    I had a look through quilters cache and couldn't spot it there but I may have missed because of a different set of colors...

    If its not a real quilt/block I bet it could be made into a real one. The one block reminds me of a spool of thread.

    Someone with EQ should be able to print a pattern. It has four fence rails,one 9 patch, and I have seen those squares before but I don't remember the name. You would need four of those. And then the sashing. Do you have some graph paper? You could figure it out that way too. It is very striking. I hope you make one!

    I've seen this before in a book. I think it's from a painting--a woman painter. Sorry I don't remember more.

    It reminds of a take on warm wishes except with pieced blocks instead of a fabric square. It should be easy to design your own.

    It's a pretty block. I have no idea what it might be called, but it would be interesting to make.

    Looks like it should be pretty easy to reproduce.
    May try hand drafting it.. it is pretty.

    So I think it is a spool, nine patch and rail all combined to make a block :wink:

    I'm going to look up the "warm wishes" that was mentioned.

    Yes, I think I'll try to reproduce with modifications. I'm not sure I like those spool blocks with the limited tools that I have with me. It will be a couple of weeks so I'll post a picture when I make the prototype block. If I used jellyroll size fabrics, it'll make a big block - around 18 inches. Now that's a big block. Thanks everyone.

    Is that a spool.. or just a square in a square.. no pattern needed.. same for the other 2.. all can be strip pieced in one method or another.
    Hmm.. I need a "thank you" lap quilt.. this might be just the thing..

    You should be able to re create this one pretty easily... break it down into the induvidual blocks; rail fence, nine patch, spools... looks like it's set on point.
    I attempt at least one block, and see how I felt about it.
    Good luck

    It could be a print of Diane Phelan's but I don't have the time at the moment to do any checking....off to work.

    well looks like rail fence blocks and nine patches. the corner ones could be made up too. then combine for the larger block effect in the pic.

    She has beautiful quilty images. Check them out here.

    That block doesn't seem to be hard to do. I have EQ5, so I might try to do it in there first, then stitch a sample block. I'll post here about it, but I'm going away for 10 days, so I'll do it when I return home.

    This looks like a Rebecca Barker Quiltscapes puzzle. She takes quilt blocks and makes paintings which are then turned in to quilts and other things. Usually the painting has something to do with the name of the block.
    You can check her site here:
    http://www.barkerquiltscapes.com/
    I love her work-she is phenomenal!

    EDITED: Sorry I did not see the post of the previous folks finding her information!
    This is directly from the website
    "Rebecca is currently working on this series of paintings she dubs "QUILTSCAPES." The title of the quilt pattern is depicted in the picture. For example, the Log Cabin Quilt has a log cabin in the background. Rebecca paints her QUILTSCAPES in acrylic on board (masonite). The patterns come from quilt history books and she attends quilt shows. Her style is realistic with clean, clear colors and a sensitivity to composition and texture."
