    Looking for the pattern or pic of the 3 dudes quilt variation

    Hi,
    I saw somewhere, a variation for the three dudes quilt. I think it involved sewing 4 jelly roll strips together and cutting 4 blocks out of each strip set. I can't remember the rest. Does anyone know what I'm referring to? Does anyone know where I can find this on the web? I haven't been lucky in my search. Thanks.

    BTW, I am a fairly new quilter and I love reading everyone's posts, especially the show and tell.

    Jenny has a video tutorial of it. I'll see if I can find it for you.

      Jenny's tutorial uses 4 strips.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5Ixv...layer_embedded

      my "test" block pictured here used 5 strips.....

      the current christmas block swap uses 5 strips and is super fun

      hope this helps in your search .......

                PD that is just beautiful. I love all those bright lovely colors. How big is your 30 block? Would it cover a queen size bed?

                  Yes - it is queen size with the border there is a picture of it on my bed in my albums... LOVE LOVE LOVE the ease of these blocks! the "trick" is to use the same fabric for strips 1 and 5 when you make the strip sets. This creates the center diamond in a color controled pattern. Simple directions are in the swap group thread and I think also on the forum thread for the swap....there is an opening for a swap player if you feel ready to jump quick! ..

                    PD that is just gorgeous. None of these is the one I'm looking for. It's a variation. The blocks are flipped a certain way. Maybe it will ring a bell with someone else. Thanks for the replies.

                      hummm can you discribe the block you are looking for? - the name "3dudes" is something Jenny came up with when she did the tutorial to be sure to recognize the guys whose website it came from..... maybe you are looking for a strip twist? I have one of those in my album too ... it is made by strip setting 4 jelly rolls and then subcutting and twisting

                        Yay, i found the picture that I was looking for. I should have known I saw it right here at the msqc forum. It's under a post titled "3 dudes block" under Sew and Tell. It's a variation of a "German technique" of the hidden wells quilt, a variation of the 3 dudes block.
