    Does anyone know my name?

    I saw this pattern on the quilting board some time ago and copied the picture because I liked the scrappiness. When looking for a pattern to make my nephew a quilt I decided this was a relatively easy one to make and went searching in my stash. I was able to "go shopping" upstairs and choose all the fabrics for it from what I had (ridiculous amount of stash!). Now I want to make the label but would like to credit the name to whoever is the designer. My DD (who is making two double sided matching pillows from the leftover HST and I am thrilled that she is following in this wonderful quilting world) suggested a name of "Love Expands" which I think is cute. The squares are 4" each and the overall quilt measures 96" square. It's also reversible with jelly roll race as the back. He and his bride are getting married the end of March and after I started their quilt in January their registry came out with blue and light green sheets! Lucky such a perfect color choice. So if anyone knows this name, I would appreciate knowing to give credit to the designer. Thanks.

    The designer is Darlene Zimmerman, and she named her pattern Fresh Tradition. It appeared in American Patchwork and Quilting, Feb 2007. Darlene's quilt used feed sacks.


    Your quilt is beautiful!!!

    It's a split 9 patch block. You can create many different quilts based on the setting.

    Here is a picture of an Amish one

    Edited to add, I've also seen it called a broken 9P and a fractured 9P. Basically it is a standard 9P block with some strategically placed HST replacing some of the squares of the 9Patch

    I was just making a baby quilt using the same pattern - but I got it from a Jelly Roll pattern book. I think that the pattern has been around a while. I sure do like those colors - also what a great idea for the back. Love it...

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Beautiful quilt. I believe this pattern is Arkansas Crossroads - just a different layout which I really like.

    Quilterella was right. Bonnie Hunter has this pattern on her website named the "Fourth of July" - done patriotic colors. Here's the link: http://quiltville.com
    (see the patterns on Bonnie's sidebar on the right and scroll down).

    Fabulous scrappy . It's amazing what can come from a stash or box of leftovers pieces!

    Love your colors. Having the jelly roll strips on the back really adds a lot to your quilt. I hope they love it. It's so cool that folks share info so much on this site. I appreciate all the leads I get for more info and designs. I'm looking forward to trying this pattern soon.

    The pattern has been around for a long time, though I don't know the name. I don't remember where I first saw it, but I just knew it would be perfect for using up scraps. So I began sewing my 2.5 in scrap squares together, a light & a dark as leaders and enders and then sewed those into 4-patches. When I had a good pile, I made the arrow blocks and played with the layout until I found one I liked. Your quilt is beautiful. Love your colors.

    I have been making this as my " go to" quilt since Darlene published this. I have done 30's, scrappy and all Kaffee Fascett fabrics and it never gets old. I love this quilt. Great choice for a gift.
