I’m not really sure what this pattern is called. I found it in the magazine Quiltmaker (March/April 08, No 120 Issue). The article title is “Warm Embrace”, but no where in the article is the actual block name mentioned. I had no luck finding it in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. I do like the way the quilt came out and will probably use the pattern again.
Here is the top (or flimsy) that I made for the Quilt of Valor (QOV) program. I will in the next week or so be sending it to someone else to do the actual quilting.
