    Question Help looking for this pattern

    I saw this on a web site but the information was for buying the entire quilt kit. Has anyone seen the pattern for the quilt?

    ​It looks like a variation of the pattern done by ToadUSew, I think the name is Thinking Outside The Box. There are several posts with pictures about that quilt. It is made using 1/4 Log Cabin blocks.

    Can't help with a pattern, but that is a gorgeous quilt.

    Found it! Called Flying Colors
    But every site I found have to order the pattern. Anyone know a site that I can just down load the pattern? Want to start working on it right away.

    As you say, it looks like a snail mail pattern. IMO your best hope of getting it downloaded is to contact the designer to see if they can download it to you.

    I ordered it from Cozy Quilts. Out of all the Shops that sell it. The shipping was on $1.50. Lot of them wanted $3.95.

    Think the squares can be made then cut into quarters?

    You know...I do think you could do it that way. Might even be easier. I have 36 of these blocks to put together but I'm a little scared to start...afraid the seams won't match up!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I would be afraid to make a square and cut it. Mine was made like the pictured block on heveni's link.

    Sorry about the pdf.file which was deleted. Here is the link for the free pattern, it's at the bottom of the very first page.

    That was my thought as well. It is beautiful.

    Try Blank Quilting -- Shade Cascade. It should be relatively easy to adapt.


    Sorry, I see it has been removed from this site as well.

    There are several ways to do this. I think the easiest is to make chevron log cabins: start with small square, and continue by adding logs to 2 sides only. easy!

    To me it looks like each color gradation block is a kind of log cabin, but the center square is placed at corner and strips run on two sides.....I am guessing using some of the color gradation fabric would be great for this........that's how I see it.

    You wouldn't have the 1/4" seam allowance if you tried doing this...so I don't think you can take that road!!!!
