I was at a quilt shop yesterday and saw a quilt they had on display and LOVE the "strips" used to connect the machine embroidered blocks. I do not live near this store and didnt think to ask if I could take a picture while there and design my own pattern off the picture. I inquired about the "pattern" used to make the strips and the lady said it was a donation several years ago and they have no clue.

I will try to describe it as best as i can....the strips are similar to a "string quilt" but where the corners are, they make a star/cross. The smaller strips are approx 1" wide, and there are even some 1" squares. I would estimate the total width of the big strip is 6"-8" . If I recall correctly this particular quilt stripping was made of 3 colors (might have been 4).

I know this isnt much to go on, but hoping someone here can help since driving two hours to take a picture is not a possiblity for a couple of weeks when we are back in that area.

Do you mean similar to the pattern shown on the cover of "String Quilt Revival"?

While that design is beautiful, its not like that..the strips are all 1" wide and usually pretty long. The cross kinda looks like a plus sign but the top and bottom little strips extend out farther than the middle strips do. and it all creates a grid that frames the machine embroidered blocks. The blocks are plain with just the machine stitching of a design on them.

Like i said, i know i am not doing it justice....i already know and have been told that my mind doesnt translate the same as others so I always have difficulty describing things.

I'll look to see if i can find even something similar to the shape of the "star/cross/plus sign"....also thinking i might see if shop will email me a picture of it...

Why don't you draw it and post it, that would help. Doesn't have to be perfect artwork, just the general gist of it.

Are you by chance talking about star sashing? Sashing that makes stars where it intersects with blocks? click here

I am at work so I used the resources avaliable to me to try and remember what the quilt sashing looked like. I know the following drawing is not the same as the sashing i am looking for, however it is kinda close...i am hoping to be able to go by the store this upcoming week and snap a photo.

The purple is the sashing and the yellow are the quilt blocks themselves (in this case a solid block with machine embroidery designs). Also note i know the portions and scale are off compared to the actual design, just hoping this will describe it better than words.
Now watch, I will get the picture of the actual quilt and it wont look anything like what my mind has conjured up :)

Thanks for all the help!

I think it's a log cabin four patch: click here and go to page 3

Or it might be Logs in Logs and done a different way: click here

Edited to add: It's basically a log cabin block. Take a look at the upper left corner. Draw a line down the middle of the purple strip and out to the left edge, staying within the purple strip. That's your block.
