I found this block somewhere and thought that I could replicate it.  Ha ha, it was not as easy as I thought!  If anyone knows where I can find a pattern, please let me know.

Kay, it shouldn't be too hard to draft on graph paper

It looks like a combination of the Pat Speth 5 inch Square elements. You have a 9-grid. In the top row, box 1 has two picket fence units - one dark, and one light. In box 2 of row 1, you have combination unit with a connecting corner. Box 3 of row 1 has the same picket fence units going different directions. In row 2, boxes 1 and 3, you have another combination unit with a connecting corner. The center block is all focal fabric. Row 3 is a repeat of row 1 with the picket fences in different directions.  I don't know what you would call the block. It looks like something I would make up using her units. The units are detailed in her Borders book, Nickel Quilts & Borders  by Pat Speth. 

Her Web site is http://www.patspeth.com/index.html and lots of times, she explains the units in her blog. I hope this helps.

That's an interesting pattern. I looked at the McCalls instructions and it actually looks like an easy block to make. Just for grins, I printed it off and may make the block for a potholder.

Well if my brain is still functioning at this hour I'd have to guess its crazy quilt block.

Gini, Thank you for responding, I had planned to draft it on graph paper if I could not find a pattern.  Last night I continued searching and found that I had seen it on Pinterest.  I followed that link and found the pattern!  Here is a link in case you are interested:  http://www.mccallsquilting.com/qb/pattern_300/index.html   Kay

Hi Judy, when I saw the square on Pinterest I thought that it looked fun and easy.  I had just bought a jelly roll and charms.  I thought I could use those and duplicate the square.  When I started putting it together I quickly I figured out that the measurements for jelly rolls and charms did not work.  I tried to modifications to get it to work, but it did not come out like the original.  I could not remember where I had seen it, I had made a sketch that I was working from.  Right after I asked for help I thought about Pinterest and sure enough that is where it was.  Luckily there was a link to the pattern. After studying the pattern, I have figured out how I can still use the jelly roll for most of it.  When you finish your potholder, please post it for us to see.  Kay

Kay, I made the block. Way too big for a potholder or even a hot pad so it will go into my orphan block pile. It went together OK, even though I was in a hurry and didn't take enough time to match points. Caution, in the Dark Pink-Color #3 step. It says to cut 2 squares 4-7/8". Cut them 5" square. That was the only issue I had with the pattern.

Judy,  that block turned out beautifully.  Think that I should have paid more attention when the pattern name was given out.     Ginny
