    It looks familiar but I can't think of the name. Maybe it doesn't really have one -- maybe his family member just made it up. So I say make up a name. And p. s... I love it & wish I did know the name of it so I could make one! Write up a tutorial?

    It kind of looks like a signature quilt except that the colored should be the lighter color, and people then sign it.

    Mona Marie, I think you are right. The original pattern may have been for signatures BUT this one is a jewel of a quilt. Perhaps just using up scraps.


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

    This is a very nice quilt. It wouldn't be very hard to make a pattern for this. I don't recall ever seeing that particular design before. It would be a great signature quilt with the lights and darks reversed.

    It looks similar to slanted diamonds. http://www.quilterscache.com/S/Slant...ondsBlock.html . but that pattern is made with HSTs, so not quite the same.
    I love the quilt. It reminds me a little bit of sticks of gum

    I don't know a name for this pattern but I love the look. It's another way to use up scraps I guess.

    Quite unique, didn't have geometry or I'd know the name of the two triangles that sandwich the, don't know the name of the rectangle either that is angled out on each end! Someone that has a math brain or teaches math should know. Help!!!!

    It is a scalene right triangle- scalene= all sides are different lengths; right because it has a right (90 degree) angle.

    Isosceles has two equal sides and equilateral has three equal sides.

    And the four sided shape in the center is a parallelogram- opposite sides are parallel to each other like a rectangle, but it has no right angles.

    The triangles are right triangles, b/c of the 90 degree angle at the corner... The other pieces is a parallelogram as the sides are parallel.

    It's a lovely quilt. He's fortunate to have it!

    I went to Google and did not find anything like this pattern. I don't believe the Slanted Diamond Pattern is the pattern. But I love this quilt. If anyone decides to make a pattern or knows the name please PM me as I would love a copy. This would be a great Man Cave quilt.

    This is a fabulous quilt. No clue as to a pattern name. The picture really shows the talent of the maker. It is brilliant.
    If DH can't give you any infomaybe there is someone else in his family you could ask. I think you have a treasure in this one. Alot of people are going to want to copy this one and I'm one of them. Thanks for posting.
    peace

    Can you measure the block size? I might be able to draft something up this weekend.

    You can use the right angle ruler from the "Tri-Recs" tool set to draft this design. (This design is not shown in the design booklet that comes with the tools). Or, very simply, draw a square, any size you like. Mark the center of opposite sides. Then, looking at picture of quilt draw parallel lines from corner to center marks. Design made. Don't forget to add seam allowances when mking your pattern pieces. P.S., don'y know of a name for this design.
