Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This is a reproduction quilt block. Do you know the name of this block? We have researched and have come up empty. Believe it or not it is just referred to as an X block......got anything different? Thanks.

A girl in one of my quilt classes had this block in a western themed quilt she had problems with -- they called it 'barn door' as that was what it was representing in that quilt. I also have Maggie Malone's 5500 Quilt Blocks .. and St. Andrews Cross is what it is ;>
Thank you so much. Fascinating information! I will be reading the information. I love to hear about how some of our blocks originated. And I love history, both in fabrics and patterns.
The pattern reminds me of the Album Cross pattern used in making the Home of the Brave quilts.
Try Cross roads.
I found the block in a book by Maggie Malone: "5,500 Quilt Block Designs" and is titled "St. Andrews Cross"
There's a block reference library being built . You could add this block to it, now that you know it's name.
