Default Could someone help me find the McCall's pattern this is adapted from.

I'd like the full yardages required & to see if there are strip piecing instructions.

Send the blogger an email and ask. Bloggers always read their emails from their blog.

This is made from scraps, so there might not be yardage amounts.

It is basically just a scrap quilt made with a four patch and a snowball block joined together. The four patch looks like it could be 2 1/2 " squares while the snow ball is 8 1/2 " x 2 1/2 " white block with the stones added to the corners using a diagonal seam. Then they are altered to make the pattern. a strip of scrap 2 1/2" blocks sashing to make the design. Make sense? Look close at it. I can't see a repeat to indicate strip piecing.

After reading the sizes she suggests, I am thinking she made the half snowball squares and then added a plain white block to make up the shortness inside block. But, I can't understand why you need an extra step in there.

She says she originally saw it in a McCall's magazine and that she redrafted it. I'd write to her and ask which issue.

I would just draw it out on graph paper. She shows the 3 blocks, each of which is pretty easy to figure out. (1) The four-patch is straight-forward. (2) You could make strip sets of 3 and 4 to make the framed square block, but then it won't be as scrappy as hers. (3) The snowball block can be made from a rectangle with four smaller squares sewn on the corners. She gives the dimensions for the square and rectangle shapes, so I would think it would be pretty easy to draft on graph paper. It's a little more work to figure out yardages, but really not that difficult to work out.

I have this pattern.
I could scan it and e-mail it to you if I had your address.

I believe that violates copyright laws.

Don't want to do that. McCall's Quilting August 2000 is the magazine date.
