    I spoke with the Michell customer rep. The paper pattern is # 30086 it is $10 plus $5.95 shipping. Shipping is high for a paper pattern.

    There is hardly a day goes by that I am not impressed with this Quilting Board. Just ask a question and "poof," someone on the Board knows the answer. It is the most unselfish group of quilters that I know--but then, aren't most quilters quite friendly? Thanks loads to ALL of you for staying on top of everything. Lots of hugs to ALL of you.

    fair warning---i am very very very slow at putting quilts together. not enough time to quilt and too many other people relying on me.

    Mickey:
    As I mentioned before, the patten is included with the plastic template set.

    I remember seeing a pattern almost identical in a recent Fons and Porter Magazine. It was just slightly different.

    Checked out the Marti Mitchell site. Couldn't find a pattern name. The butterfly motif is shown as a block that could be made with the dresdan plate templates. It is such a beautiful quilt. I'm inspired to made one for my great-grandaughter. She loves butterflies.

    Looks like a modified Dresden Plate design. There are lots of sites with DP patterns.

    That is a beauty. If you don't find out the name from board members, you might contact Rachel, the owner of Grandma's Attic in Dallas OR. She has a website and you could send here your photo. She is an expert in antique quilts, especially the 30's and I bet she would know or find out for you.

    I found the magazine - it was not so recent, May/June of 2000. It was on the title and the instructions etc are in the magazine. I could copy and send if you cannot locate. I know you can obtain old copies of magazines from the Fons & Porter site online.

    it was a mcCall's magazine pattern. I made one for my daughter I want to say 6 to 10 years ago. My guess would be it's somewhere in the issues of 1999 to 2002. I'll check my pile of oldies to see if I still have it.

    I don't have it but we got it narrowed down to McCall's Quilting issue May/June 2000 it sounds like.

    I have the magazine in my hand. It is the Fons and Porter's "For the Love of Quilting" March/April 2000 issue. It is on the cover. The name of the quilt is: Butterflies in Annie's Garden. It was made by JoAnn Belson from Lancaster, PA. The magazine includes full instructions, pictures and patterns. If you are interested, I can scan and e-mail to you!
