Has anyone ever seen this block pattern? I think it is really pretty. I found it in my research of the Funk Block I found in my sewing room. Can any of you figure out how to make a template for this? It apparently date back to the 1800.I found several pictures of blocks that was all the rage back then and this was the most eye catching of them all.It is called "Gods Eye" Don't you just love it?

I found a pattern on Quilt Blocks Galore. It makes a 20 inch block. http://www.quilterscache.com/G/GodsEyeBlock.html

Be sure to look at page 3 of the pattern where there are links to blocks like this that people have made. Beautiful!

I don't know how Babs found only two colors . . . she probably just woke up.

That block is absolutely spectacular. Beyond my skill levels for certain but I would love to see it made up.

This reminds me of the God's Eyes we made at camp with sticks and yarn woven into this same shape. Great pattern.....will bookmark, too! Thanks for sharing!
