    Have you seen this pattern?

    A friend is looking for this pattern, does anyone know a source? She thinks it'd pre 1988. She's not sure if it was originally in a book or magazine. Her grandma made the quilt, and she's hoping to find the exact pattern.

    The top half of the girl is one block and the leg block is added to it. It would be simple to trace and applique the blocks. The top block looks like it may have been paperpieced.
    Got fabric?

    That is such a cute quilt! The top does look paper pieced but you could applique it also. Just need to know how to draw a little. Use your ruler. Lots of angles.

    I was thinking it looked paper pieced too. She said the blocks are all different girls, that's why she was hoping to find the original pattern somewhere. Thanks for the ideas!

    I actually saw this on a blog recently. I'll go see if I can find it.

    here's one:

    if you search google images for pieced girl block, you'll find some more.

    I am thinking it was in Quiltmaker magazine a good many years ago? I remember seeing it in a magazine somewhere. Sorry that's all this old brain came up with.

    You were right! She found it and was able to purchase the right magazine on eBay.
