    Default 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?!!
