    i found this to be an interesting block and very easy. the same principle as the log cabin.
    has anyone made this block before?

    Very cute, I've seen the pattern before but the partial seam scared me off. How hard was it to do?

    I really like this one, is it very hard to do? I'm looking for baby quilt patterns.

    That is really cool looking! I have not seen it yet (surprise! I'm still really new to quilting so nearly everything is new to me!) But this is very eye catching!
    I'd also be interested in learning where to find this pattern. A friend of mine and I sew/quilt every week. I think this coming week or the next we're doing tree skirts but both of us have lots of blankets/throws we need to get done..!!

    I also absolutely adore the space ship fabric! Is that a newer still can find it material or is a long since one out of stash? Very adorable!!!

    That is way cool! I haven't seen a block like that before. I'd like the pattern info too. (Goodness knows I don't have enough of them!)

    That is ADORABLE! What a great way to showcase a large scale fabric.

    I am afraid of set-in seams, so I would be afraid of this one.

    Very cute quilt!!! :D
    Did I just see this pattern in a new quilt magazine I got? Don't remember which one it was. I thought it looked hard (for me anyways) but didn't really read all the directions. Going to have to take another look at it now! lol!!!

    I like this! Makes a great 'I Spy' quilt. Is there a tut somewhere or at least name the pattern. Thanks

    thanks all for the kind words. this is really a very simple quilt block. i found it in a quilt book called LICKETY-SPLIT QUILTS FOR LITTLE ONES. written by laurie bevan.
    this block is really just another variation of the old favorite log cabin only you add the strips counter clock wise and stop after the first round. the name of the block was given as WEB.
    as far as the set in seam, there isn't one. just cut the center fabric the size square that you want, then cut off the corners. sort of like you were going to make snowballs. start by sewing the strip across the top, but when you have sewn half way across just stop and lengthen the seam. trim only the left side and add the next strip on that left side. trim and continue to add alternating strips until you get back to the final strip. at this point just unsew half the first strip and after sewing on the last strip finish by resewing that first strip at the shorter stitch length. after all the blocks are finished to this point add corner triangles.
    this is just a backwards log cabin assembly and is very simple. i am toying with the idea of adding another round of strips. just to see what it would look like.
    does this make any sense at all. your local library may very well have this book. it is from THAT PATCHWORK PLACE.

    I love your quilt and that block is so cool. I think I have a pattern for a quilt using that square.

    Very cute quilts! I'll have to read over your instructions again and give it a try.

    When I read you directions I thought WHAT? But then when I looked at the block again they were very clear. Cute quilt!

    That's darling! You say it is easy? It has a very complicated look! How big was your initial square?
