    There was a wonderful pattern a couple of weeks ago called Jacob's coat. I was able to download the instructions but there was no pattern for the eliptical pattern piece. Does anyone have it?

    Hmm not sure what you mean... I found several Jacobs and Josephs on Quilterscache.com, but none of them have an "elliptical" piece... hers must be different blocks than yours?

    Josephs coat quilt is the same as the pumpkin seed quilt. Google either one and you will see they have the eliptical shape. I just finishefthe pumpkin seed quilt.

    I actually had a kit from Quilt Smart. Made it so much easier.. My points didnt match up very well at all. After it is quilted I am putting little yo yos on those corners.

    Josephs coat?

    I have Leisure Arts "Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns" and Josephs coat is in there with pattern pieces, there is the elliptic piece and the triangle with inward curves. :D

    There are 2 ways you can make the Jacob's coat pattern. You can piece it or you can applique it. I googled "jacob's coat kelly jackson" and found pdf instructions. I've also seen a very good quilt-along here: http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_...lt-along-.html (However, she is calling it "Joseph's coat").
    I've seen tutorials and free templates around the web, they're not hard to find. Inklingo has a joseph's coat pattern, also.

    THanks for all the links, everyone. Checked them all and they all work. Will save for a possible future reference? Too many quilts to do:)

    I followed the dontlooknow site for awhile. She instructs you on how to make the pieces yourself! More than I wanted to do although it is a very pretty quilt.

    One thing I enjoy about this site, is that googling to find answers brings up so many techniques and patterns. Here is one pattern of the template, though getting it to the precise size might be difficult. http://blog.petitdesignco.com/2010/0...late-help.html
    I believe the Jacob's Coat is indeed the old Joseph's Coat pattern, one of the many blocks with Biblical background. It is not the pumpkin seed block, which has fewer sides. Nor is it Robbing Peter... Also I found at least one one other Joseph's Coat with a completely different look.

    Would love to see your quilt when you finish.

    I just started piecing Joseph's Coat using Inklingo. If you haven't heard of Inklingo, check it out at Inklingo.com.
    I would post a picture of what I have pieced, but I don't know how to post a picture here.

    If you go to Inklingo.com and search Joseph's Coat you will see that pattern. Inklingo is a method of printing the pattern shapes on your printer, cut on the cutting lines and sew on the stitching lines. I have no affiliation but have used this innovative process and have found they are very precise.
