Anyone know?

Pic from Sew This Is My Life blog
Does anyone know what this little chestnut is called? (block in the centre) I love this block and am just wondering if it has an 'official' name. If you click on the pic and zoom in you get a better idea.

Let me know you smarty peeps who know such wonderful things.

  1. I'd say it a "make it up as you go along" block.

  2. I don't know what it's called either. I've never seen it before but I agree with Julie that it's most likely a block straight from the designer's imagination.

  3. I think it might be called "stacked books".

    I cant even figure out quality names for the quilts I invent myself!

  5. YUP. It's the way the healthy food pyramid looks (to me) - with the choc/sugar section at the top..... OR it may be something inspired by early 80's space invader style games...so the... 'space invader block' it what it could b known as. P OR...the word verification for this comment was 'telewig' so maaayybeee that is what it is. Oh all-right Im clearly knackered and need sleep.

  7. Did you ask at the blog where you saw the photo? It just looks like a happy scrappy block to me. :0)
