    Looks like the Birthday Gift pattern from the book Jelly Roll Inspirations by Pam and Nicky Lintott. Or a variation of it.

    That's an 8x8 block, isn't it? It looks like a variation of Betty's Delight (Kansas City Star, 1949) with the lights and darks in different places. It probably has a different, more modern name too. It's beautiful! (BTW, thanks, Craftilady!)

    Talking

    Yea! My friend who was in my quilt class remembered the name and had the pattern to share with me. It is called
    Rhubarb Twist by Terry Atkinson..
    I may still call it "Pretty"

    I didn't see Rhubarb Twist on Terry Atkinson's page! But I did find two similar blocks. Could it be Wheels or Whirligig?

    Wheels is from 1976 (Progressive Farmer), and it looks like yours except that compared to it, yours is on point. It's in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns (#1278) and Maggie Malone's 5,500 Quilt Block Designs (p. 167).

    Whirligig (from 1931) is more complicated because its triangles are in three pieces, but I can't really tell where all your seams are. That one's in Jinny Beyer's Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns.

    Whirligig instructions are on Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache, God bless her, although the colors aren't arranged like yours: http://www.quilterscache.com/W/WhirligigBlock.html

    Anyhoo, I'm sure you'll have fun with it, 'cuz it's a really pretty block.
