    found this 3 1/4x 3 1/4 mini block. I'm sending two pics so you can see it turned around. Can anyone tell me what this block is called and where I could find the pattern?

    Look at this easy alternative way on how to make them.
    http://tutorials.missouriquiltco.com/
    Go to quilting tutorials and click on it.
    Then go three down and two over to where it says Stack and Wack.

    I've made mini's with that block - it's way easier than you think! Honest!! I have templates that I made for a mini just out of the template plastic.

    This one is completed and measures 6" square
