    Hello everyone,
    I am new to the boards and I need your help. I came down here to NM to help my mother care for my father who had cancer. He passed away Dec. 1st and with all thoughts running on auto we can not find 2 quilt patterns we both fell in love with.
    One evening we were elbow deep in our comfort food of choice...Quilting magazines. We came across 2 quilts we loved, one was called Fenced in chickens and the other was something railroad crossing. We even looked at the chicken one with a magnifying glass to see the detail of the fabric. She had used a fabric that worked great as chicken wire though it was not. The other one I believe had 9"white squares that alternated with a printed white that gave a pattern within the quilt patern. It had a spectacular purple floral border. The purple quilt came first in the magazine on the left and the chicken was a little further in but on the right side.
    If anyone remembers seeing these quilts and what magazine they where in we would be in your debt.
    I have searched on line for weeks with no luck at all.

    Hoping you can help,
    Jeanne

    Welcome, Jeanne, from a very snowy New Hampshire. Because only you know what the chicken quilt looked like, I can't search for the image...but you can. It's often much easier than any other way to search for a pattern. Give it a try...and good luck. If you find the image, it should lead you to the magazine. http://images.google.com/images?hl=e...num=1&ct=title

    Yes, I have searched every image google would give me, every web shot, photo bucket, you name it I have looked at it. I keep going back to all the quilt mag's and search through their search engine thinking that maybe it was just not uploaded in their systems yet. That is why I have now turned to fellow quilters thinking that there had to be at least one other person out there that looked at the same magazine. I know I am hoping for a lot here but the alternative is a shared hallucination and the quilts real don't excist at all....lol That or the allians took it....lol

    thanks,
    Jeanne

    Can you sketch a drawing of what you are looking for or at least describe it?

    Where are the mags yall were looking at? The only thing i could say is go through them all LOL I know but since you both love them and found them together is worth looking through them again.

    That is the funny part we have gone through everyone of them 8 or 9 times and can not find it. We even thought that maybe I did not place it on the foot stool by my mothers chair but on the arm and one of the cats knocked into the trash basket she has there. So I even went through the out-side garbage just incase it was thrown out by mistake.
    I even went through the magazines that were still in boxes from when they moved here. It is just the strangest thing!

    Thanks for the help though,
    Jeanne

    Could it be the split rail 9-patch you are looking for? You might also want to check out www.quilterscache.com. They have a LOT of patterns there.

    Welcome!

    Thank you so much for you thoughts, I think that is what it was a variation of the split rail quilt. I think I can duplicate it close enough to my liking now.
    Again thank you,
    Jeanne

    Relax, step away from the magazines, do something else and all of a sudden the pattern will pop up - when you least expect it.

    Thanks Lynne for the web site link... what a great site. I have found a few quilts I want to make when I get home. I have tons of fabric cut into strips that was going to be a rug but now I have new plans for it.
    Again thank you,
    Jeanne
