I unofficially call this design "Log Cabin Rose". It is made up from just this one block. Rotating the blocks and changing the number of blocks will ultimately alter the design it produces. This is a square block. The circles and curves are created because the lavender strips are wider than the blue strips, creating the illusion of being rounded.
This block is in the EQ library, filed under 'Foundation Pieced -Log Cabins'. They gave it the title "Off Center 6 - Log Cabin". You could also piece this block in the traditional way.
This is what can result from rotating the blocks. I call this layout the Rose Medallion.
I call this layout the Vertical Strip Rose
I call this layout the Circles and Stars Rose. This is similar to the layout that Jean used for her quilt, only she used many more blocks!
and you could also use this block to simulate a scallop border..................................you could use it to surround any of your favorite quilt centers
