    What is this pattern called?

    I'd love to recreate this for my son, who's now 20, as a college graduation gift.

    If you do a google search for 10 minute quilt block you will find more info on the above. Happy quilting.

    I have to agree with all of the above. It sure looks like the 10 min. block pattern.

    from the look of the stripe-y block under his knee, i'd say it is the 10-minute block, too

    I think it looks like the 10-minute block, too, because the center square has no seams. But if that pattern is too complicated for you, you could always sew four blocks together with a folded over square in one corner for the same look.

    Although the 10-minute block is kind of a fun challenge...

    It looks like a traditional Bow Tie block to me. That is the one with the deaded Y seams. There are easier versions now called the 10 Minute block or Easy Bow Tie. The blocks are then set with pale yellow sashing and blue cornerstones. If you want the traditional Bow Tie block, it is probably on www.quilterscache.com?
