    Hummingbirds and Vines

    I have had this picture on my desktop for a very long time as a quilt I would like to do someday. Problem is, I don't remember where it came from. I don't recall if it came from here on the quiltingboard or if I saw it in one of the numerous quilt shops and saved it to my desktop. If anyone could perhaps give me a name of the pattern or any information, it would be greatly appreciated.

    That is a lovely quilt. Some of the flowers (morning glory?) look like they might be 3-dimensional.

    well, i couldn't find your pattern, but here is a pattern for the blocks that are the background. you'll have to make the lattice strips a bit narrower, i think. http://www.shopfonsandporter.com/pro...Quilt-Pattern/

    Marcia Hohn at www.quilterscache.com has a couple of blocks that could be used for these...one is Plaited Block and the other is Octagon and Twist. I've used the Octagon and Twist. I'm thinking that the Plaited Block would work best.
    I really, really love the quilt in your picture. Yummy!

    From here, the flowers look folded. You could use the back blocks someone just mentioned and make your own kinds of flowers. Seems I have seen a book with folded flowers.

    I have a book on folded flowers, I have a book for the hummingbirds, and I've ordered the book "Garden Twist" by Sharon Yenter. I had hoped that there was an actual pattern and I'm sure if there is, someone on the board will find it. I do agree that the plaited block from Quilter's Cache is usuable and it really does give me an idea on the placement. I will keep my fingers crossed that somehow we come up with the pattern. I have had that picture on my desktop for quite awhile and I realllllly love that quilt.

    The hummingbirds on this quilt look some some of my hummingbird embroidery designs. I would be very interested in this pattern also.

    I can't help with the quilt pattern, although I recognize the Around the Twist or Lover's Knot block. As for the rest - I think it could be an original design or one of those older patterns. However, it was done by an excellent applique quilt artist. It is beautifiul.
