I need to make a king size quilt and the customer wants something like this. I wanted to find the pattern, so I can calculate how much of each fabric I need.

Thanks!

It just looks like a square within a square to me. Have seen it referred to as Barn Door. I made one in purple and green for my gym instructor and she loved it. Some of the squares looked to be floating.

I've seen those blocks together referred to as Inside Outside quilts

I know them as Rainy Day quilts . In another state I've heard them called Potato Chip quilts. The implication is that they were very easy. And they are.

Also, I've done them with much busier fabric. The idea is to find 2 fabrics you might never put together, and then make the whole quilt from them. ;-) And have a little bit of fun with the borders.

I made more than a dozen of these around 7 years ago (they're kinda addicting).

As for the fabric requirements, you can make them any size you want.

The finished blocks I used ranged anywhere from 9"-10.5", depending on how big you cut the middle square (I based it on the type of fabrics I was using).

So if you cut the center 6.5" and the strips 2.5", you'd have a finished block of 10. Figure for a king-size quilt you'll need at least 100 blocks. Great thing is you really don't need a border.

And since you're going for a much more streamlined, modern look, you'd need at least 5 yards of the background fabric AND 5 yards worth of fabric for the "color" pieces.

Each strip of fabric WOW will be enough go around one block (with some leftover).

Once you get the pieces are cut up, the sewing is a breeze.
