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.

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.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Love these colors.  I just finished redecorating a bedroom into a sewing room using pinks and greens as base colors.  This block takes on a whole new look with more contrasting colors to show off the shapes.  It would make a really pretty quilt.
