    Does anyone have the Jan/Feb 2007 issue of For the Love of Quilting with the instructions and yardage info needed to make the Basketweave Baby quilt? Fons & Porter said access was on their website but when I went to it, all I got was the message that it was featured in the Jan/Feb 2007 issue of their magazine. When I went to purchase the magazine on their back issue page, all they had was the March/April 2007 issue available. Does anyone have that issue and would be willing to email me the yardage & instructions? I do have the segment to watch on QNNTV but they don't give the yardage.
    Thanks in advance for any information you can give me.

    Thank you so much for finding this pattern for me. I've printed the instructions to it just in case dizzy can't send me the scanned version from her magazine. The pattern from For The Love of Quilting is a little more elaborate than the one you found. It could be that they 'calmed it down' so that it would be easier for any quilters who were going to make one for the Linus Project. If dizzy does scan it and the picture shows clear enough, you will see why I love it. I will definately be a true 'quilter' if I can put it together correctly, and still have all my hair left....
    Thanks again for your help.

    Thanks so much for finding it. There isn't a great hurry to have it so don't rush getting the scanner set up. What do you think of the pattern? Am I nuts for trying to tackle one like that, or have you read the instructions yet? I'm certainly glad some ladies keep their quilting magazines that far back. I have close to 130 now, lost count since I've gotten several new issues this month plus a number of them at garage sales that I haven't added to my record-book yet. I won't make the mistake my husband made when he sold his collection of RC and model train magazines several years ago at our sale. He's regretting it now like crazy.
    Again, thank you for your help with this pattern.

    Thanks! I'll do that if she can't. I'm so glad that I found this web-site because I know I'm going to have lots of questions to ask once I really get into the quilting mode.

    I think I've found the perfect place to visit when I've got a problem or question. I was surprised at how quickly, and how many ladies have offered their help already.

    Welcome to the board. There are a lot of knowledgable people here who are very generous about sharing their expertise, skill...and sometimes just their opinion if you ask! I've learned a lot since I've joined.

    I saw that quilt pictured on the Fons and Porter site a couple of years ago.
    I loved it so I made up my own pattern and made it. Someday I'll finish sewing down the last side of the binding.
    This is a picture before it was quilted.

    Thanks so much for all that work getting the pictures & instructions for me. I finally figured out how to download the pages, I'm a duffus on the PC, and printed them. Sure was easier to read when they were right-side up :>) I had found those corrections on their website and was a bit miffed that they didn't just write out the entire instructions again with the corrections highlighted. Then I wouldn't have had to bug anyone like I did. What did you think of the quilt? I loved the original colors used but hated the Tried & True spiced up quilt at the end.
    Thank you again for helping me out with this problem.

    Did you use 2 layers of medium loft to enhance the woven effect per Marianne's instructions? I love your quilt and your colors. It sounds like you might almost be as bad as I am when it comes to finishing my projects. Thank you for sharing your quilt picture.

    If you go to the qnntv website and click on the Fon's and Potter icon and then on the 1st icon you can watch them making the basketweave quilt. I love this website. But it does cost money to become a member. I think it is worth every cent with all of the information you get watching the videos.

    If you are talking to me, no I didn't have any directions. I just winged it.
    :D I just looked at the picture and thought I could do that! It was fun.

    Susiequilts: If you just winged it, you did a great job. I'm one of those people that must follow the pattern exactly for fear I'll do a royal screw-up & ruin the whole item.
    Sorry about the missing name as I'm new to this forumn & don't know all the correct steps to take yet.

    Thanks Barb, that is where I saw this quilt and fell in love with it. I haven't looked at all the shows on there yet because some of them have almost put me to sleep when I tried to sit through them. But not the case with the Basketweave Baby quilt. I do enjoy the QUILT OUT LOUD segments because Mark is noisy enough to keep me awake :>)

    Hi right back at you from Oregon.
    If you're interested in a good deal, I found one from Connecting Threads in my Sept/Oct 2009 issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting mag. where you can get $5.96 off your fabric order if you type US596 in the promo code box at checkout. It's for online orders only and limit 1 per person. This is good through 10/31/09.
