No Name Block


I was looking for this block pattern for months and wasn't able to locate the name of the block or a pattern anywhere. I guess I wasn't looking in the right place because I found it on Libby's blog, check out her baby quilt. Libby is a sweetie and didn't mind sharing the cutting sizes with me. I don't know if you can see but the red is a small check fabric and the cream fabric has tone on tone little egg shaped circles and dots. I've done 7 blocks, 9 more to go. Does anyone know the name of the block? It would be nice to know what to call my block.

My first lace pattern sock is from Knitty, they are called Monkey Socks, I'm using Lana Grossa yarn with cotton and wool, nice combination for a very comfy sock. Still have one more sock to make.

Happy Quilting.

The block with the red checks is adorable. I love it. I'm not sure what the block is called but I have an idea. I'll be back after a little research. :-)

And, the Monkey Socks are great. I don't knit. LOL

Wow, I dunno the name of it, but the block could lend itself so easily to a children's story book quilt, Alice & Wondeerland, or something really whimsical.

Thank you for your comment on my blog.
The yarn is for socks. I like sock-knitting. I also have knitting the monkey-pattern. It is really a nice pattern.

Hi! Your blocks are lovely! They look a lot like Grandmother's Pride blocks (although those are usually made with three colours...) Check this link and have a look for yourself, see what you think: http://homepage.mac.com/chiaverini/sylviasbridalsampler/files/grandmotherspride.pdf

I believe it is called Arbor Window too. I have actually just made a quilt with this pattern and am hand quilting it at the moment. I was going to post it on my blog very soon !
