My niece has picked out this quilt for a wedding present. I was wondering if anyone knew the name

I could make it with my triangle in a square ruler from Quilt in a Day.:)
If you need a pattern, Pattern Play by Doreen Speckman has both blocks, grids and the quilt made in a different color lay out made up. You can even get the book for $5.OO with free shipping.
I agree with Prairie Quilter; this is a Tennessee Waltz pattern, the first full-sized quilt I ever made. I think I threw away more of those triangle blocks than I used, but it was a wedding quilt for my husband's niece.
I prefer king size quilts on my queen size bed too. That way they fit more like a bedspread.
I knew as soon as I saw it that I would need the EZ ruler and Tri-Rec rulers. I know where my EZ ruler is and now I just have to fins my Tr-Rec rulers. I am not starting this until the last week in May so I have time to find it.
I know that has to be some good contrast so I will spend the next couple of weeks gathering fabric. I need to decide if I want to make it scrappy or just use about 5 different fabrics.
I spent some time the other night sketching out the pattern for the two blocks that are involved in this quilt. There is a lot of seams to match but not too many points to match even though I have to be careful about not losing points.
This also looks a lot like Bonnie Hunter's Cathedral Stars. One block is the same but the other block is very different. I have printed that one out also so I have to decide which one I want to do.
I will be making a king. I don't know what size bed they have but I like making a square quilt and larger than you really need because then you don't have to fight over the covers. I have a rectangular one on my bed now and I don't like it. We are always fighting over the covers.
My niece's fiance must really love her if he is going with all purple. But then again my older son's fiance wanted rainbow colors and he was fine with it also.
Thanks for all your help. I will post a picture once the top is done. The quilting will take some time .
I highly recommend the Tri-Recs rulers by Darlene Zimmerman through EZ Wrights to make the star points. You can find these just about everywhere including Joann's Fabrics. The block with the darker purple points is the 54-40 or Fight block. There are directions to make each of these blocks on the package that comes with the set of rulers. The main thing is to make sure you have the right amount of contrast between your fabrics in order for the secondary design to show up & that they are place correctly. Just study each block & you will see what I mean. Be sure to post a pic if you end up making this quilt as we would all love to see it.
Well I went hunting. This quilt is like of Stars at Seas, Which was 72x90. The templates I love are by Recs Tool and started by Darlene Zimmerman and Joy Hoffman. I often take the size I want and the templates I have along with the idea and make my own pattern. Which for this quilt it would be easy with the templates.
At first look I would say it is from Doreen Speckman designs. I bought her templates for the 60* triangle and side, which is half of 60* with 1/4" added. It could very well be a pattern from Judy Martin. I do not own every one of Judy's books. There is lots of others with the same idea. This quilt would be easy to copy with the right tool. There is no real design to the pieces only the colors used and the way it is laid out. I will keep looking and also find the name of the tool that would help to make the right outcome to the size you want. That size?
