Thank you to all of you who are trying to figure this out,. a appreciate it very much. it does look like both of them together. I will keep this site attached to my e-mail for a while. thank you again, Mary Keeling
Although it has the same outline shape as "Crossed Canoes", this is actually a more advanced quilters' version called "Harlquin Star" according to A Quilter's Companion by Delores Hinson, p.48. That one also sports piecework in the center square as well, but I like the one in the photo better:)
There is an encyclopedia of quilt blocks by Barbara brackman, if you can get your hands on a copy you could look it up. I think you need to know the name of the pattern to start. that or go through it page by page.
Someone replied it looked like the crossed canoe block,of all the years I've been quilting I never heard tell of this block.If you want the pattern google the name and there's all kinds of info to help you.
have you gone to www.quilterscache.com ? they have almost every pattern you can think of old and new. i will look too and see if i can find it. may take a while there are tons of them. or maybe you will get lucky and someone will just know.
i love this picture.
It looks very similar to a Crossed Canoes block, with the variation of the diamonds in the points. Not sure I've ever seen a pattern like this one, but if you have the Electric Quilt design software, you might be able to draft your own pattern...
Sorry don't know but love the quilt and picture
