    Cabana Quilt

    I saw a cabana quilt today and looking for a pattern. Found one sight and it was sold out and the other one I was not sure I trusted it. Does anyone know of a website that I am not finding on my search. I can see the concept of how to do it but would like a pattern to make sure I have the right measurements on the pieces.
    Thanks,
    Evelyn

    Could you possibly post a picture or describe the quilt a little? My search for Cabana quilt came up with dozens of different quilts.

    Crazy Old Ladies had a Cabana quilt pattern like this. It's probably out-of-print, but I found it on Amazon:

    Edit: Here it is on the createforless.com website, which I have used in the past:

    It actually looks like Flying Geese blocks. That is cool I am glad you asked about it as I had never seen that one before

    I love that pattern. It's one of those that could be traditional or modern. Thanks for the picture!

    You are all welcome that liked the picture. I got an email from a member to go to Kayewood.com and sure enough I found it and was on sale and ordered it. I had never gone to her website before and now want the boomerang quilt and template as well. I am obsessed and addicted to patterns, gadgets and templates.

    The center is a square-in-a-square with radiating flying geese in a background of HST's. Very nice. I'd work it up in EQ7 for you but that computer isn't working and I don't have EQ on my Mac
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It's definitely HST's. If you look at the corner for each row, a flying geese block would not fill the corner. Every HST is made with a color and a white fabric.

    Why do you need a pattern? All it is is half square trangles. Look at the picture for the layout and you've got it. Easy, easy ! ! Good Luck. I may do one also. Thanks.

    I like the pattern too. I saw it on Pinterest. It's actually flying geese and HST. I plan to only make HST as I dislike making flying geese. It would be easy enough to do without a pattern.......just make a bunch of HST with one side a solid color and layout like the picture. Please post if you do it. Good Luck!
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Oh I love its simplicity - and just copied a picture to my file - should be easy to duplicate. And it is scrap heaven!

    Yes it is both FG and HST per the pattern designer. The FG radiate from the center to the 4 corners and the HST fill in the rest of the space. This pattern can be reversed engineered (made without a pattern). It is a simple yet statement making design. I too saved the pattern for a later date. I may end up working this in as a leader and ender project for the HST.

    You could either do it as flying geese and HST or just HST, with some of them assembled as pseudo-flying gees. I would go with the latter. That's an easy pattern. Wish I could have showed you how to do it and you wouldn't need to order a pattern! Oh well, it supports a pattern designer, sooooo.

    Using my very hi-tech non-EQ graph paper, I sketched this pattern.

    The purple blocks are the flying geese. The center block does not need to be a square in a square. It's just two FG blocks going in opposite directions. I think that would be easier for most people to do.

    The four quadrants that I've colored with pink, orange and green are all HST's.

    My hi-tech drawing is limited by the size of the paper, but it used 46 flying geese and 272 HST's.

    If your HST's are 2" square finished, and your flying geese are 2" x 4" finished, you would need the following number of blocks:

    46 FG + 280 HST = 34" square quilt (51" square with 3" HST's)

    58 FG + 428 HST = 42" square quilt (64" square with 3" HST's)

    70 FG + 620 HST = 51" square quilt (76" square with 3" HST's)

    86 FG + 932 HST = 62" square quilt (93" square with 3" HST's)

    I haven't double checked my math, but this should give anyone a rough idea of how many blocks they need for this quilt.
