A Little Help Please!

Okay friends, I'm working on a project right now (that I can't tell you about just yet).  In trying to get my ideas to come together, I started sketching out quilt blocks and came up with this-

So here's where I need some quilty wisdom.  Does this block have a name?  I've looked all through Pinterest and well known quilt block libraries and although I have seen some that are similar, I haven't seen one that is exactly the same.

I find it difficult to believe (although not impossible, I guess) that this is not already a named quilt block, so if you know what it is, please let me know!  Also, if it doesn't have a name, it needs one.  So, if you have a good suggestion for that, I'm all ears.

In the meantime, this can just serve as a little sneak peek of my latest project!

**Edited to add- If this block doesn't already have a name, I think "Purse Strings" fits perfectly.  To me, it looks like a top view of a drawstring bag.  If you think of another name idea, I'd still love to hear it though! 


  1. I was thinking of a Cartwheel, like you do in gymnastics! I don't think I have ever seen that block before. The center is a weathervane. Looks very Christmasy.... 100 days to go! Ho,ho,ho!

  2. Love that you fussy cut your stripes to all radiate out! I've never seen it. I like both yours and Lorna's suggestions.

  3. Whatever the name thank you so much for this Kelly-block, I love it !

  4. Doesn't look familiar to me... but if it is yours to name, i like Purse Strings :)

  5. I have also often wondered, how do I know if this is new? So many out there! I think it is different though. Looks great too, Kelly! Purse strings is great and it looks empty so it is definitely like mine:)

  6. It looks like an intersection on a busy street to me...I would call it " Four Way Stop"

    1. I love that name, unfortunately, there is already a quilt block by that name.

      :) Kelly

  7. Absolutely no idea, but I love it! Those stripes radiating out are brill!

  8. Looking forward to seeing what you are going to do!!! Don't know the name but love what you are calling it! Marie

  9. This is a lovely block. I like the four way stop suggestion :)
