    Great pattern. Easily drafted:
    - if you want to make a 4 inch square, draw a 4 inch square and measure on two opposing sides a point at the 2 inch mark; then draw a line from one half way point to the opposite corner and the opposite 2 inch point to the other corner. Add your quarter inch cutting line all around and you have two templates as the light blue ones in the quilt are the same.
    - if you want to make a 6 inch square, draw a 6 inch square and measure on two opposing sides a point at the 3 inch mark; then draw a line from one half way point to the opposite corner and the opposite 3 inch point to the other corner. Add your quarter inch cutting line all around and you have two templates, as the light blue ones in the quilt are the same.
    - if you wish to make anything bigger just use the same ratio.
    Beautiful heirloom. Good luck all!

    I sure don't know, but it makes a really neat quilt and the secondary pattern is interesting.

    I have no idea of a name but it looks simple enough Cut a rectangle, slice it cattycorner and add a strip of fabric at an angle .. Well I know what I mean. LOL, Then I would just cut it down to the size I wanted the block

    I cannot measure it, The quilt picture is from a friend in Tenn and the picture was sent to him by a relative living I don't know were. But I bet you could do it anyway.

    You know as soon as I read your answer I said to myself, Self that is exactly what it is, a signature quilt made with scraps. Thanks a ton. I will be posting another quilt from another friend today. I must look like the quilt block expert! HA.

    Just finished blocks similar for a signature quilt for family reunion. We each took a 6 in piece of muslin and attached charms (5 in) on opposing end and sewed on the diagonal. Easy peasy for everyone to do. Would post pics but sent blocks to sister who will do all the assembly.

    I think it looks great! But I think this can easily be made by sewing three strips togetherand taking say like an x-block ruler and cutting them at an angle. then you have your slant but also a straight block..if that makes sense? It's the same technique as the lil twister.

    I did this on EQ7 and it looks like yours. This may show up twice because I don't know what I'm doing or trying to figure it out. Love the quilt

    I agree with quilter 70, my first thought was a signature quilt...

    Calicocat, this is a beautiful quilt and for whomever....A family treasure!

    I think your idea is something I could do. I would love to make this quilt but math hurts my brain. That's why your idea is so straight forward to me. Thanks for spending some time thinking this through. I know I didn't start this thread, but you helped me!

    I can see that made with men's shirt plaid fabrics.
    So many quilts, so little time.
