15 blocks...........

Here are all 15 blocks but I can see that I need to rearrange them.  I was too tired to go back down and do it last night after I got the photo loaded into the computer.  I have been searching my quilt block books and haven't found this block yet so I still don't know the name of it. 
My childhood friend and her husband came to see me yesterday and we had such a good time.  She is a history buff so we ate at the Bull Moose Bar and Grille which is a Pullman dining car used by Teddy Roosevelt.  Then we played in my basement for awhile. 
 
Today I am going for my post op check up for my eye.  I hope it is the last dr. visit for awhile.

I don't know the name of the quilt block either but it is nice, I like the arrangement. It kind of looks like a "windmill" type of block.

Gene Black said...

That quilt is going to be so nice! I am dubbing the block "Seeing Stars at the Windmill" I thought windmill the first time I saw it too.

HollyM said...

I think it looks a little starry too, very pretty! Good luck with your appointment!

Jackie said...

The blocks look great! I am in agreement, it is definitely some type of windmill/pinwheel block. Hope all goes well at the doctor's visit today!

Mary said...

Good luck on the checkup. I'll be thinking about you. The quilt top is looking good.

Sheila said...

I don't know the name of this pretty block either. Has a lot of movement.
Good luck with your eye appointment.

Take a look here:

It seems to be set in a combo with another block.

I always look first at Quilter's Cache.

I hope your dr. visit goes well and you get good news! I'm not sure if I have seen this block before or not. I think it is a combination of two blocks.

Hoping for a good report from the eye doctor. I know you are beyond ready for things to be ok. I would be.

They look wonderful.

I hope this is the end of doctor visits for a long time for you. You've had enough this year!!

Whatever the name of the block may be, it's a beautiful Christmas quilt!
I hope your appointment goes well and that you're done with doctors for quite a while.

Your quilt gets me in the Christmas spirit.

JJM said...

I too, am hoping you get a good report from your eye Dr. today.

I love that pattern for your Christmas Quilt. Still am in awe of those small triangles, working into that grand design.

Those blocks are so pretty! I love that they look difficult, but are just half square triangles. Believing with you for a good report!

Julianne said...

Hope your appt went well! Can you tell me what the size of your HST's were and the unfinished size of the block?

Julierose said...

Hope the Dr visit went well. Have fun rearranging the blocks!

I hope the post op check went well. I'm sitting typing this on my iPad in an overly chilled motel room -- mum has her second cataract operation tomorrow. Time to adjust the temperature on the air-con! Take care.

Sharon said...

Good luck with your follow up. Hopefully you wont' have to go back for a while. Love this setting and the prints look so great together.

Pat said...

I like your Christmas quilt. I also hope your eye follow-up went well. I am sick of doctors also and luckily do not have to go back until January. The book you talked about yesterday looks interesting especialy if he was a needlepointer. It is interesting that very few people now do needlepoint. When I was younger I taught many needlepoint classes and haven't picked it up in years. Maybe that should be my new project for next year.
