I have seen this quilt on pinterest, but didn't save it.  Now I MUST have it--you know how that goes.

It's a block quilt, probably made with layer cake squares.  Put two contrasting squares on top of each other, slice off a 2 1/2" strip on both sides.  Then cut two more strips, but subcut them into 2 1/2" squares The blocks then end up as mirror images.,  The two side strips are contrasting, and the middle two rows end up looking like zipper teeth with alternating contrasting squares.  I've hunted pinterest under every heading I can think of , so if anyone recognizes what I'm talking about, I will be most grateful.  It looks easy enough with the contrasting blocks; would be a good quick gift.

Thank you!

PS--If I happen to find it, I'll post a link here.

Could it possibly be the pattern called 'Zipper Quilt'?  Jenny Doan shows one in a tutorial, although I'm not sure if it's constructed the way you described.  If you google that name, you'll know right away if it's the one you're looking for!

Good luck, and HTH!

Thanks, Cheryl, but it isn't that one  I have made Jenny's and they are just a bit  different.  Sometime when I'm not even looking for it, it will pop up, I'm sure.

Thank you!  It's very close!  The strips on each side of the zipper are the two contrasting colors.  I think I can figure it out by trial and error, knowing it's based on a 10" square.

The large squares and strips that you speak of bring to mind a potato chip quilt.  Maybe it's a variation of it.
