Default Need help identifying this quilt block

I would love know what the name of the block. Some have called it Double T but I can't find a pattern that comes close to it. Chris

Hi Chris. I initially thought it was called Brown Goose, but when I looked it up in the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara Brackman, she called it Double Z. Hope that helped.

so far i'm thinking it's all flying geese with corner triangles to make it a square block. interesting, but no name comes to mind yet.

I heartily recommend Barbara Brackman's book as a source to find traditional patterns.
I drew this as I see it, but you could equally well make 4 FG units and 4 HST units around a broken dishes unit.

Yup, looks like it. I'd say that is the same.

Everyone, Thank you so much for the help. I have Barbara's book but had no idea where to start looking. I've learned with EQ how to break down how a block is constructed but this one had me fooled for a while till I turned the picture sideways then I could see the segments and how the above graph looks just like the block. To me when the block is turned on angle like in the picture, it looks like a cross to me. Take care, Chris

I'll admit that I generally go the other way. I find a pattern I like in the book, then put it into EQ. Her categories do help, however. For example, I've made a scrappy quilt that I like a lot, which I now know is Vestibule or Square Cross (pix later, after it is bound)
