    So in checking my email I get this one from e-patterns central.com I love it and want to try it. Has anyone ordered online patterns from them? I'm sure I might be able to find the pattern for free but wonder if the $4.00 for the pattern is worth it over a couple of hours of searching the internet. Plus it says its for Beginners - didn't have the star saying a 5 year old could do it but Beginners works for me.....

    That looks easy to sit down and make a pattern from that picture... Get graph paper and play...

    If you still want to use the download their site is easy to use. Just order the download version of the pattern and than they will tell you how to download it to your computer.:)

    That's an awesome pattern. I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to recreate.

    My problem is that I'm not conceptually able to visualize and then figure out how big each piece should be - I need the instructions 1 strip 9 inches; 2 squares 4x4...that sort of thing. My 12 year old - he can look at a picture and design a scaled symetrical picture with directions...but the $4.00 may be worth NOT having him laugh at me!!

    I would spend the $4 and get to work. It would take me hours to figure it out on my own, even though I know I could. As my husbands says....you have to factor in the worth of your time. In this case, your time is worth $4, IMHO :)

    If I had time I would figure it out for you. My hands are pretty full right now.

    As a drafter, I would transfer it to paper and figure out the cut order, but that's me. I saw this pattern in a quilt show yesterday and it is very pretty. The reason I remember it is coz hubby and I looked at it for a long time. The gal had used some directional fabrics and she did a wonderful job making sure the stripes and patterns were going in the right direction.

    So this is a suggestion for you: Don't use directional prints.

    I think you can do this. Just follow the sewing order as stated. It's a nice 3-color quilt.

    Thanks for saving me the time to look for this great pattern. I'm downloading and doing this one. Hope you do also. Looks easy, quick and fun to do. Will look great too. Why worry with drafting it yourself when you have it at hand for $4.00.

    I recreated the block this morning. Geometry was one of my favorite subjects in HS, but was not very useful until I started quilting.

    The photo does not do justice to the colors. If my DD likes the pattern, I would like to do it in blues for my DGS. I'm thinking a variety of novelty prints for patterned QAYG backing would be nice.

    cjmomma - and you typed up instructions for me???

    I love your colors - I think a blue would work nicely too...the material I have to use is tutti fruitti...I got it at walmart last week for 1.50 a yard - I just picked up a yard of every print they have and think this would be the perfect square for it.

    I saw it, too. Let us know how it goes. Will it really be easy (and fast?)?

    I've ordered from them many times with no problems. The patterns I have used were well written.

    I haven't looked at their site for awhile. Off I go........

    I agree $4.00 is a decent price and to have all the proper measurements is a definate plus.. I say go for it. It does look hard, but gives the impression of difficulty when complete - which I like.
