    Hiya,

    I sure hope there is someone on here who can help me find what I've been searching for for ages - in the mid-to-late 1970's I subscribed to a needlecraft magazine which had in it instructions for creating an interwoven tube quilt. The quilt is literally fiber-filled tubes which are interwoven (laced if you will) then stitched to one another after weaving - I remember most all the directions but I cannot recall the method of stitching.

    Unfortunately I never made this particular quilt but it has stuck in my mind all these years as one that I really want to make as it was incredibly beautiful in its simplicity & fit for anyone's use/room. I held onto this magazine (as well as hundreds of others) but it/them along with most all of my worldly possessions was/were lost in hurricane Katrina.

    I have searched the web over for it & was lucky enough to find one like it, but alas, not the instructions.

    Patty (aka catabrie)

    The almost exact pattern is in May 2010 American Quilt Retailer magazine that most quilt shops and designers subscribe to. The pattern is for shops to use for classes, to make kits, or for free handouts. It's called Woven as One by Susan Fuquay. There is a picture of this quilt on her blog.

    Some shops have a quilt displayed for classes and when you ask for a pattern later the shop says it's not available or they have no idea who made it or where to get a copy, it's usually the free pattern for shops from this magazine. I don't know why the magazine is such big deal to keep away from customers. Anyone can subscribe.

    I have the directions if you can't get a back copy of the magazine. I'll probably never make one.

    Bless your heart. I am so sorry. Dental work is definitely not fun. It seems like it takes longer for dental work to heal than anything else. Take care of that problem and prayers for a fast healing. Hope you do well. Gerbie

    This looks interesting - may I also get the pattern?
    I will also ask my local shop if they have it - sometimes they are nice and sometimes they aren't. Thanks!
