    Okay, this is probably asking for a miracle, but... While sorting through my quilt stuff I came across a quilt kit I bought about 2 1/2 years ago from a quilt shop in Zanesville, Ohio. I actually bought two of these kits and can't find the pattern for them. I can't imagine that I wouldn't have bought the pattern, but who knows. I'm not even sure what to look for. Don't remember it. I think it may have been a pattern that was popular at that time. The kit contains 8 yards of fabric cut into 238 6" squares, containing 7 each of 36 different fabrics, 10- 4 1/2" strips for the borders and 10-2 1/" strips for the binding. The kits themselves (which the shop made up) were really pretty floral fabrics. Any idea anyone? Thanks.

    Is the quilt shop still there that you can see if someone remembers cutting those kind of pieces? After my sister passed, I would find magazines in with groups of fabric. She would keep the whole magazine with the fabric even though it was the one pattern she would make someday. I also found some already cut quilt pieces, but could not find the pattern she intended to use.

    Is there any paperwork in the kits ? A name of any sort ?

    Maybe you could just sew the squares into a 9 patch and use the other as sashing ?

    I tried the shop and the lady that was doing the kits at that time is no longer there. No one else remembers. I don't think I would have bought the pattern (especially 2 of them) without the pattern. Darn!

    There's just a 3x5 card listing the pieces.

    I bought 2 kits once that didn't include any pattern. I had to buy the book but got a good deal on Amazon. So some quilt shops do sell kits without a pattern. It has to do with the copyright laws. My shop didn't tell me either and I called them up and let them know it wasn't fair not to warn people about the no pattern included.

    I wish they had at least put the name of the pattern on the kit. It just lists the pieces and size of the quilt. I know I could just piece it together since it is all 6" squares but I remember buying it because I loved the look of the finished product.

    Now there is a true mystery! It gave me an idea on how to do our mystery quilt for next year or something similar--a challenge maybe. No clue but I was thinking what you had might be around the world type quilt.

    Good Luck !!!
    If the card said 7x36 for 238 the math was wrong should be 252..... 7x34 is 238, could it be somthing that fades in and out of color ? w/no sashing.. hmmm
    Once again Best o Luck. let us know what you decide to do. :)

    Could it have been for a stack n' whack? I seem to remember being fascinated with that pattern. I am pretty sure that it was not simply squares sewn together.

    maybe you bought a book at the same time......I bought a fabric kit once because I loved the finished quilt they were showing, but had to buy a book that had the pattern in it. (like Darlene said)

    I wonder if they made a mistake. I've not counted them. It does say 14 across x 17 down, so that would be 238. Doesn't jive with the 7 x 36 though.
