    I don't have a pattern, but an easy way to do this is using HST. Try sketching in out on graph paper.

    Quilter's cache has a pattern but for a small one. It is also called a broken star and I think Judith Krentz has a patter tut for it.

    I would make it with half square triangles. the size of them dictates the size of the quilt. but there are lots of free patterns out there too.

    so make this quilt out of squares ans HST. Pretty simple. Just look at the quilt and go from there. Don't think you really need a pattern for it. Cut your squares the size you want and the cut the HST squares 7/8 of an inch bigger, draw a diagonal line down the middle and sew 1?4" on each side of the diagonal, cut in half and viola! you have your HST, then square up the squares and piece em together.

    As you can see from my avatar, I love this layout. You can go bigger just by adding extra rounds. Very easy to do. :-D

    Crafty bear is absolutely correct. The version she sent you is made from half square triangles. SOOOOO much easier than making it with diamonds. (No set in or Y seams required)

    The quilt center is a 8 blocks x 8 blocks. Plus two borders that together equal the size of a block, making it a 10 x 10 layout. Ten inch blocks ought to do it. Then a 2 inch finished border and an 8 inch finished border. That would get you a 100x100 quilt.

    Carpenter's Wheel is the name of the quilt. It's all squares and HSTs.
