    Warm Wishes

    Hope the pic comes through of a Warm Wishes throw I made for a 13 year old cancer patient. He loves being outdoors with his dad and the focus fabric has pictures of deer. I found this fabric at Wal-Mart after shopping several places. Warm Wishes is usually my to-to pattern when I need something quick that looks more complicated than it really is. :-D

    I just "googled" warm wishes free pattern and got the one from Nov/Dec 2003 Quiltmaker magazine. I believe it was used as a Linus project???

    I like look of the rail blocks when the center strip is a bit wider than the outer 2 strips. The suggestion to make the rail block first, then cut the focus block to match is brilliant. Mary Ellen Hopkins and her PPM (personal private measurement) advocacy made quilting less stressful and more fun for many folks. A great pattern for all occasions.

    Whenever I teach Warm Wishes or a similiar pattern that requires pieced strips- I suggest that they be made first. Then measure the height and cut the width accordingly. Then cut the focus fabric. Sometimes there is a slight difference because of the seam allowances taken.

    Thanks, Another Phyllis! I'm hoping more people will post their WW versions; would be nice to have them all in one thread. It's amazing how different fabrics can make the same pattern look so different. I started cutting and piecing another WW top, yesterday evening. It's gonna be made in only three fabrics (frames all alike) and the colors are tan and navy. I LOVE how these make up so quickly!!!
