    I'm new to this board stuff. I was searching the net last week and I found a pattern my friend just loves. I've tried multiple searches to find "where I found it" but I've been unsuccessful. So, I'm turning to you lovely people and hoping for some help. I thought if I reached enough people . . . SOMEONE might be able to help :o).

    Can any of you tell me anything about the picture below. I'm trying to locate a pattern for it but as I mentioned I've been unsuccessful with all the names I've tried to give it. Thanks so much! Happy QUILTING!

    Hi welcome to the board.

    This pattern would be super easy to draft yourself. It is nothing more than a modified rail fence type construction. It looks to me like the colored bricks are simply 6 alternating squares of light and dark values in the same color then stripped on either side with a narrow black sashing. They are then assembled in rows with one facing sashing up then one facing sashing on the side. The rows are then alternated.

    You can just get yourself some graph paper and draw it out then assemble it with no pattern needed. Just decide how big you want to make it and count the rows then size your squares and sashing strips from there.

    Have you tried going into your history to find it. If not, click on your Favorites tab at the top left and when it opens click on the history tab. It'll show you all the sites that you have been to. Will take a little time, but you may be successful.

    The blocks look pieced inside the borders in the picture? There is version that is very similar in the Aug/Sept. Quilt Magazine. It is done with blue batiks and solid blue sashes. It is beautiful and is done with strip piecing. The pattern goes from pages 88-90 and the title of the quilt is "Rhythm in Blues".

    It is very very simple to make, just as feline fanatic said. You make your 'six patch', which is rectangular in shape. The black strips on each side are wide enough to make the block become a square.

    Ignoring the seam allowances, let's say you use 2" squares to make the six patch; the block would be 4"x6". Add a 1" strip to each 4" side so that the block is now 6" square.

    Now you simply turn each block one half turn to create the quilt. It is sort of an optical illusion, because the viewer does not see that the blocks are actually square.

    My quilt group just completed one that used large floral fabrics instead of a six patch in the center. It turned out beautiful. You can see it on my blog at

    You're kidding? No, now I can see it but was afraid to touch it because of the "curves". Now I can see where the optical illusion comes in. Thank you for telling us about it, now I won't be afraid to touch it. It's a very pretty quilt and quite stunning.

    Carron, I would have gotten a hold of the maker but I had no CLUE where I found the picture. I was searching online last week for different pictures of quilts and my friend just loved this one. I could repeat the google search I did last week to find it. I looked at so much stuff last week, and then AGAIN in the last couple days trying to find it :o). That's why I tried this! And I got so lucky. Cowpie2 replied that it was HERS! yeee haaa!

    To me, it looks a bit like "Forest Bricks " pattern. It's worth looking at anyway.

    i know this one looks hard but it isn't. it is a square with black strips on the sides only. you just turn some on their sides and it looks like it's difficult to get those blk strips to go together. but it's simply squares. good luck. i intend to make one myself soon i hope.

    It is an optical illusion. All the blocks are the same, a wide fabric and two borders that equal the length of the block.

    So an 8" finished square could have a six inch finished piece (cut 6 1/2 x 8 1/2) with a 1 inch finished border on each size. They would be cut 1 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. One block is sew with the borders horizontal and the next with the borders vertical

    When you do math, you use the finished size of the block and add the seam allowance. This is a great pattern for a print that just has large printed stripes sometimes called a wallpaper print.



    I had to scan in a photo of my Mother in laws quilt. The close up is of the block. The block is a stripe cut horizontally. It is one piece of fabric for the block. You can see part of the stripes of the vertical blocks next to it. So I cut the block as wide as the center motif plus the two borders printed next to it plus seam allowance. It sure looks like I worked hard, but didn't.
