    Help find this advent, Please.

    Again!...I find myself in a pattern hunt! How do I end up falling in love with the hard to find:-)

    Does anyone know where I can find it? I left blog comments and emailed! No responses. Anyone?

    it's really cute. it looks like a quarter log cabin with half triangles added to the ends. and by the looks of the hands holding it, it is really large!

    I give up.

    It's all done in EQ but the files - similar to ones I upload here ALL the time - just aren't uploading today.

    I've gotta get this clay mask off my face so I will try again later tonight.

    If you want to PM me your email address, I'll gladly send them that way.

    I made one with an appliqué center but the outside edges are not just HST, they are 3 D so that they form a pocket to put the little advent gifts into, I don't have a picture, but it probably only had the 24 pockets.

    Here's a cropped photo of how the pockets are arranged on the outside edge of mine so that you get your 24 pockets, sorry for the poor quality of picture but it just happened to be in the background of another photo. Name:  2012-11-22-0926-43_edited (Small).jpg

    If it helps any, the HST's are 1-1/2" unfinished (this shows in one of the under construction pictures).

    Pm me and will try to get angie to give me the pattern or somebody in the class. I go to Angie's shop and classes. Her blog is interesting with many different patterns by her and quilters. Geoff's wall art is fantastic.

    Another supersimple log cabin variation. Pull out some grid paper and start marking.

    All last night the numbers I wrote upthread were bothering me.
    I knew there was something not quite right, but as I had eaten ~24 Zucchini Bread Cupcakes, I was incapable of actually thinking straight.

    Now I realize that I had put 7 rounds, instead of 6, on the tree.
    I've asked QuiltnNan to delete the two incorrect posts upthread.

    The ramblings below takes some of the info from the previous posts.
    It's not in any great order - I'm not writing a pattern - just pointing out some issues that may arise while constructing the block.

    At least the pictures are uploading (I hope).
    eta: not quite - I see the pics correctly placed while I'm writing, but after posting, they turn into invalid attachments. So now they're at the bottom of the post. Weird.

    Here's the correct information for a 14" FINISHED block.



    The inner tree block FINISHES at 8", with a 1" FINISHED inner white border, and a 2" FINISHED HST block border.
    The logs are 1" FINISHED wide.

    If you want to make it bigger - change the grid - just maintain the same proportions and it should all fit nicely together.
    Well, in a perfect world. ;-)

    Piecing normally, I would add the white HST via the Snowball method to the ends of the log strips BEFORE I added them to the block.

    Since the logs are CUT 1.5", the white squares (for the Snowball) would also be cut 1.5" also.
    Here's a link to a quick guide of the Snowball method if you aren't already familiar with it.:
    http://www.straw.com/quilting/articles/snowball1.html
    Take care when adding each snowball that the diagonal seam is sewn in the correct direction.
    (When sewing the white square on the two strips from the same fabric, the diagonal seams will be in opposite directions.
    Practice on some scraps - otherwise the background (white) won't be in the right position.)

    When adding each log to the tree block, I would line up from the outside of the block - to make sure the HST point will be nice and neat and sharp and still pointy - and sew toward the center.
    And then just keep going around.

    If the inner tree block doesn't measures 8.5" UNFINSHED (for whatever reason), just adjust the white inner border so the block will end up at 10.5" UNFINSHED.

    That way, the HST blocks (2" FINISHED) will fit nicely all the way around.
    You will need 24 HST blocks for the border.

    I prefer the cut big and trim down method.
    I would cut 12 squares of the two fabrics at least 3" square.
    Place one square of each color right sides together, draw a diagonal line down the center, sew 1/4" on each side of the line, and cut apart on the drawn line.
    Open and press to the darker fabric.
    Trim the block down to 2.5" UNFINISHED.

    Sew two sets of 5 HST blocks each AND sew two sets of 7 HST blocks each,
    making sure the blocks in each set are oriented the same way.

    Attach a 5 block border to two opposite sides of the tree block (after the sashing has been added), taking care to match the color placement in the original picture.

    Same for the top and bottom borders - 2 adjacent sides are white in and 2 are white out.



    Start the tree with the square for the tree trunk (bottom right).
    I think the easiest way would be to cut a 2.5" square of the brown trunk fabric, and snowball 3 sides of it with white squares (cut 1.5"), and trim away the excess.

    I blew up the picture in the op and I can't quite see those seam lines - there are other ways to construct it - but I don't think it matters much.

    Then you can just start adding the logs.
    The way I drew it, thinking paper-piecing might an option, was to add a log on the left side of the trunk and then on top with fabric A, then left, top, with fabric B, and so on.

    The tips of the tree look to be 1/2 sq triangles with a small sashing strip added once the tree is made....but your rendition will work just as well.

    Yeah, I think it will work.

    That all looks easy enough, except the pockets for the advent gifts are missing. How about instead of HST try something similar to the pinapple technique. Have a square and sew a folded square on top when assembling?

    I contacted JoyLyn who is a member of the quilt group and it seems that it is an exclusive pattern. She is trying to get permission to get a printed or digital pattern and a price for the same. If I hear anything more about it, I will send a pm or post here.

    LOL!
    Learn something new every day.
    I had not a clue what an advent gift was, nor that there were pockets to put one in.

    Ah, and that now explains the color placement of the HST blocks in the borders.

    Yep, your solution would work perfectly.

    That would require 24 squares of each color, instead of the 12 indicated above.
    And I would cut them all at 2.5" exactly since there is no diagonal seam allowance to worry about.

    Fold and press the red squares in half on the diagonal.
    Place on a white square, and sew it with 1/8" seam allowance on the red sides.
    (I think doing this extra step will just make handling the HST blocks easier.
    I suppose you could pin the two pieces while sewing 2 blocks together, but it doesn't seem like that much more work to not have loose, flapping edges.)

    Then you can just prepare the borders strips the same way as posted previously.

    And now you really have to take care of the positioning of the blocks, because if a block is upside now, you can't put a gift in.

    Which seems to be the whole purpose of the quilt, right?

    The quilt in your picture, the pattern is copyright so no can get. Try the second one I found and see if you can find the pattern.

    Dotty,

    With all due respect, I think you totally misunderstand the nature of copyright protection and copyright infringement, especially regarding patterns, regardless of which side of the pond you are on.

    Those are MY instructions.
    Written by ME in MY words.
    Measurements calculated by ME.
    Drawings made by ME (via my licensed copies of various software).
    Moi, moi and moi.

    As I stated above, I had not a clue what an advent gift was, much less a quilt block made for one.
    So it is highly improbable - like, impossible - that I would have a pattern in my possession to copy, or even to use as a reference.

    You want to know the one infringement on this whole thread?
    While Ariane probably doesn't know it, but re-posting the picture in the op, without permission from the photographer, was an infringement.
    Now, I get that it's the interweb, and things are so easy to copy, and everyone thinks it's a free-for-all, but most just don't realize it.
    And the mods here never do anything about that so I just shrug it off.
    But using a simple link would have sufficed, and been the proper way to show the photo.
    Next time. ;-)

    To me, this whole thing was just a mathematical exercise.

    If you notice in my somewhat lengthy posts, I usually NEVER, ever post photos by others, and the posts are always link-heavy - exactly because of that issue.

    I even had a bit of trepidation when I marked-up your own pictures on the JP thread.
    And I specifically mentioned how uncomfortable I was marking up the picture from Cheryl's .pdf instructions.
    So I think I'm pretty consistent on the issue.

    Nor do I ever pass off work as totally mine without giving credit, or at least a shout-out for inspiration, to the source - as best as I know it.
    (unlike a good portion of posts in the Pictures forum - you don't find out until the 2nd page of replies that the quilt in question was, in fact, an EXACT copy of a published pattern. Makes me want to delete my - what a great design and color selection comment - since, duh, the poster didn't actually do any of that.)

    But I digress.

    I assure you no copyright was infringed upon by anything contained in my posts.

    Nor, btw, did Angie even mention a pattern on her blog, just that it was a workshop.
    You might suggest to her that she also slap her name and/or blog address on all her photos.
    I'm sure the photo was copied and downloaded, not just from her blog, but from here as well, and it will be copied even more, and in those cases there will be NO way to even track it back to her - if she did have a pattern for sale.
    Or just to give an "inspired by the Advent calendar on Angie's blog, blah, blah, blah."
    I'm sure she would appreciate the shout-out.

    Which I'm sure Ariane will do when she posts her finished block.
