Many of you asked what pattern I used for Miss Jenna’s quilt. I didn’t know if it had a name…I had seen something similar and just made it work.
However, it turns out that it does have a name, and it is an old and common block: Buckeye Beauty….or…a lot of other names, like
|Double Four Patch
Gay Scrap Quilt
Give This One a Name
Going to Chicago
New Four Patch

Mine is based on 2-1/2″ squares and 5″ squares for the HST sections–squared up to 4-1/2.
I think what makes Miss Jenna’s quilt look so different is the use of three colors. It is a great block by any name, and at least we all know.
