    What are your thoughts please

    I have a picture of this from way back. I'm guessing it might be a dis 9 patch but I can't work out how you would cut it. It may be something entirely different so - in either case - if any one can enlighten me I would really appreciate it.

    Think the attachment might have worked but will know when I post. Is there any way you can actually see the image before you post. Mmmm?

    This is the Cats Cradle block. You can find many ways to make it now that you know the name of the block. Creative Grids makes a ruler specifically for this block.

      Thanks for the suggestion Denise - as you say many ways to make it but I'm not sure about being a Cats Cradle block as I couldn't see anything on google that was exactly the same? Having studied the image again I think I could achieve it by making many 4 patch squares but adding half-square triangles to one of the corners on half of the 4 patch squares. Would that work? Anyone done anything like it?

        To me it looks like this combined with 4 patch blocks.

        I could be wrong but I think it would work.

        Edited to add
        Just took a look at the cats cradle block and yup looks the same too...with 4 patches on the corners.

          Hate to tell ya, but it is commonly known as a cats cradle block. As with all things crafty, there are probably several other names for this block but the most common one being Cats Cradle, Birds in the Air etc... There are serval ways to piece it but the Creative Grids Ruler makes for quick work or you can try this, happy quilting.

                  Denise I had to laugh. Is there any block that Creative Grids doesn't have a special ruler for?!!

                      I think I'll be using that part of the car's cradle block for two of the corners but with 4 patches on the other corners. Found another way to make the triangle section which is part of a Grandmother's Choice tutorial. Every Cat's Cradle block I've seen looks like a 9 patch block whereas the block I want to make has 4 patch blocks. Not as experienced as all the Forum members here but I think I'll get there wiith a few experiments. Thanks everyone for your imput.

                        This one had caught my eye a while back.

                        Here is the link to your photo:
                        https://lavieenrosie.typepad.com/lav...-mercerie.html

                        There is a pictorial guide to assembling the block as well. The pattern is called Schnibbles Mercerie by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

                        If I ever got it all together, I'd be too tired to do anything with it.

                          Many thanks Lyn - you solved it. I'd seen references to Lavieenrosie but couldn't get anywhere with a Google search - that's exactly it and there seems to be many ways to put the blocks together - I like this stand-alone arrangement as it is

                            Deb Tucker has a tutorial on this block on YouTube using her technique sheet and trimmer. She calls it the Shaded Four Patch. There are probably free reference sheets available for the starting sizes to strip piece this.

                              Thanks so much for that. This forum is such a help and my question has had so many useful answers but this link has finally solved the mystery. Time to start sewing I think after puzzling over this block for some time.
