I'm trying to find the name of this pattern for my sister. She is the quilter in the family. Hope someone can help me.
I'm trying to attach the picture it's not working.
Not having any luck posting a picture of the quilt square. Anyone that can help me with this I would appreciate it. I have tried going to the film strip and uploading and just trying to create a gallery shot but nothing seems to work.
Welcome to QCA ! When you attach a picture to your message using the filmstrip icon it sometimes takes awhile for the picture to be attached. I often think it's not going to work. Maybe try again and give it awhile.
Thank you Carol. I will try again in a little while when I have more time to wait.
This isn't it exactly, but the closest block I could find. The block you show could be made with this pattern by just placing the colors in the right places. This is from the book "501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks" by Judy Hopkins.
Carol's block layout is of the same type, called intersecting parallel line blocks by Michael James in his 1978 edition of The Quiltmaker's Handbook. What Judy Hopkins is calling a 7-unit block. Many popular patterns resemble this block layout - Bear's Paw, Lincoln's Platform and Goose Tracks. The Tonganoxie nine patch definitely has similarities to your quilt. I also cannot find an exact pattern to this one. It may be that the maker chose fabrics of different shades than the pattern suggested, to make her own design.
If your sister wants to make this quilt, she could easily draft it on graph paper. The block is formed by making a 7X7 grid - 49 squares. Make two sets of parallel lines running through the middle of the block from top to bottom and side to side. The remaining four corner sections are subdivided into a 9-patch grid. Then, color the sections according to the quilt block pattern, being sure to use light, medium, and dark shades to get the effect shown. I would suggest a 14-inch finished block size, since it is divisible by 7, making each of the grids on the block a 2-inch finished section.
Hope this helps.
Sorry I'm no help here first time I'm seeing your pic.
