    I would like to do the quilt pictured below ... I know I have seen the quilt pattern for sale somewhere, but don't know the name so searching online is not working ...

    Thanks!
    Linda

    it looks like the square in a square one, and you can probalby find it for free...I just cant remember where I saw it....maybe you could do it without a pattern, it looks fairly straighforward.

    I seen it on one of the major fabric manufactures websites, try Hoffman,RJR,Andover to name a few. I frequent the manufacturer sites often they have great patterns and often they are free. Oh also try Moda and the Moda bakeshop.

    Seems like this one has the word city in it.

    I know it was in a Fons & Porter mag a few yrs ago. I think someone on here made one,but I'd never be able to find it in search. Sorry- Guess I'm not too helpful.............

    I think you might be able to figure it out by yourself. If you look at the bottom of the black rows, you can see how the pattern is made. The 1st block in the row is the square with the strips going around it. The next block is the stripes in between. Then there seems to be the thinner sashing row in between the larger blocks. Looks like the 1st & last of the white pieces is wider in the 2nd,etc, bigger block rows.That's really all there is to it. Just decide how big you want it & do the math. Alternate the blocks. Don't forget the seam allowances. Good luck on the search.
    PS- I use graph paper to figure things like this out.

    Judy (aka 4dogs),

    I'm not seeing how this is put together. Will you please tell us what you see/how you'd break down the pattern?

    I've only been making quilts for about a year, so I still have lots to learn.

    Thanks!

    To me It looks like Square in a Square block, then three strips sewin together, then Square n Square block ect.
    Then a sashing with one strip that lines up in the middle of the top block and the next strip in the sashing lining up with the middle strip in the three sewn strips together...so basically the blocks in the quilt would be Square n Square and three strip block, with sashing with strip sewn in it...

    Could it be from a book called City Quilts? Looks like the type that book would have.

    LindaM that is an easy one to figure out...it looks like a sq in sq with some extra strips on the sides...then with a 3 stripe block beside it. Then do a strip with a small black sq in the center to line up with the black strip on the block above it...really it's a no brainer...print it out and look closely at the pattern...happy stitchin' crafty_linda_b

    The quilt designer is Julie Popa, she has a website at www.juliepopadesign.com. That quilt is published in her book "Beyond Tradition" and is called "Study in Black and White".

    You can get that pattern several different ways - order from Julie (which is cheaper than Amazon), order a back issue of the Fons & Porter issue that featured that pattern, or check your library for both.

    I'd rather pay the $5 for the mag. then spend the time figuring it out. I don't have EQ as I have a Mac. Thanks for the link I'll order it up!

    btiny 36 did a drawing that is close enough to the design, except that the squares are larger in the original design. If you are new to quilting, btiny's design would be more suitable for you as you would not have to make the minor adjustments. I think it is a striking design.

    That's what I thought, too.
