    What is this pattern called?

    I bought these on ebay and am not sure what to do with these blocks. I think I arranged them the way they were meant but I am not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    They look like tumbling blocks. Type in tumbling blocks quilt pattern on google and you'll see. For instance, the white side should all go on top.

      Trish beat me to it. I think there is a MSQC tutorial or video on tumbling blocks, too.
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

        My vote is for Tumbling Blocks too. Although it does look like you could arrange them in any order you would like.

          If you bought the off ebay were they already sewn together like you show? Diamonds can be made into lots of patterns but the way they look suggests they're supposed to be stars like this:



          Here's a nice one where they've bordered each star:

            What you see is what came sewn, the rest are the pieces. Thanks to all and thanks to jrchapman for the other possibilities.

              To jrchapman, what is the name of the pattern for the bottom pieces you have shown?

                Maybe the Ebay seller might know.

                  I don't know if it has an official name. It's a traditional hand pieced design sometimes called a six pointed star and sometimes called a hexagon star. That picture was taken off a blog here but there wasn't much information.
