    Has anyone been able to buy the pattern of Magic Tiles? It is by Kathleen Bissett. She has distributors all over Canada and two that distribute to US quilt shops but I can't find one that has it.

    I found a web page for Kathleen Bissett. It gives her address, phone number, web site, and e-mail address. If I were you I would e-mail and ask her if their was a LQS near you which carries the pattern or if you could buy it directly from her.

    I thought the pattern looked familiar. In Fons and Porter Love of Quilting July August 2005 there is a pattern called Nine Patch Picnic that is the same except no small sashing around the tiles. That would be easy to add. The cutting lay out and placement of each cut is listed as you cut and sew.

    I don't have the pattern but I know how to do it. It's just a Wonky Nine patch with black strips in between. I saw a woman on Sewing With Nancy do one the other day. 9 squares of different fabrics stacked, cut two slashes each way with no particular measurements. I started mine with 12" blocks, most start with smaller. Once they're cut you take the first stack and put the top piece on the bottom, second stack put the top two on the bottom, third the top three and sew on before you start sewing. That will give you one piece of each fabric per block. Then just sew your black strips on between the first and second, the second and third, the 4th and 5th, 5th and 6th then sew a strip down one side of your first three that you've sewn together and sew the second strip onto that. Do the same with the last strip. Don't try to have your corners match, they don't need to. You'll have to square up each block when finished. hope that helps

    Isn't this the same concept but you would use 12 layers of fabric instead of 9 to create the 12 blocks?

    OOOPPS I'm sorry, you DO use 9 different fabrics. Gray moment attacks again! I changed it. For some reason today has been gray all day. I used to have a few blond moments but now. . . . . . :lol:

    Thank you so very much all of you. This is the greatest Quilting Board that there ever was. And so fast too. I can't thank each one of you enough. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow.
    Big hugs to you all.
