    Hi. I am in the middle of making a quilt with a tiger panel on the front with also an elephant and giraffe I believe. It was in a quilting magazine and the quilt was on the cover. I went away on vacation and my husband and grandchildren "cleaned up" my sewing room and when I came back I cannot find the magazine to finish the quit. I know I started it several months ago but I cannot even remember the name of the magazine to order a back issue. Does anyone remember this quilt or the magazine it was in? I had to buy the centre panel and it had several other African fabrics in it and also had black striping in it between little blocks of fabric. I would really like to finish it and don't know where to get the pattern from again. I appreciate any help. I know the pattern was in the magazine by the designer of the fabric I think. :( Thanks.

    I tried to google tiger quilt pattern, but didn't find anything like what you described. You might try it with some other terms and see what happens. Do you still have the fabric with the designer's name on it? That might help. Good luck, and surely someone here has the magazine.

    One question: Are they still alive? I know they have to at least be hospitalized! LOL What a nightmare. I'd be extremely upset. You're a patient woman.

    Thanks a lot! You are a lifesaver!! I thought it was on the cover, sorry, but that is it!!! I will have to order a back issue to get it so I can finish the quilt. I really appreciate all the help. My family has no concept of the value of my sewing since no one else around me can even sew on a button! My husband only sees my sewing room as an "abyss" with all my supplies etc. taking up space in the basement. I am very patient but frustrated at the same time. He has woodworking and tools and I have my sewing. I came home to see little pieces of fabric all over where my grandchildren (8 and 10) had taken them off my sewing machine and used them to tie around bottles etc and my husband thought the little blocks were garbage and threw a lot of the pieces of this quilt out. Sigh!!! I hope I have enough fabric left to finsh it. :D Thanks.

    I think I would sit my husband down and explain to him that you are not happy that your space was invaded. Remind his that he wouldn't like it if the grandchildren invaded his woodworking area and played with his tools or scattered his supplies all around. In fact, I'm sure he would be rather upset.

    I'm very fortunate that my husband grew up with a mother that sewed all the time except on Sundays. She didn't drive and she wasn't able to work outside the home. So she spent her extra time sewing for her family. Her sewing machine was in the dining room and Rich says he has fond memories of sitting at the dining table talking to her while she sewed. Anyway, he understands that the smallest snippet of fabric might be needed and if it is on the floor he carefully picks it up and lays it on my sewing machine table.

    Rich even goes with me to the fabric stores, quilt shows, craft fairs, etc. If he gets a little restless he will go outside and find a comfy seat and sit and wait for me no matter how long I take to shop or look.
