    :roll: I am still trying to find the pattern for Shadow Play quilt. It is in the Fons and Porter magazine from March/April 2008 but is no longer available on their website. Does anyone have this issue and would you please contact me?
    thanks

    I am thinking that it may be the quilt on the cover. I believe I have seen it elsewhere called Shadow Play...because of the use of colors it gives it the shadowy optical illusions.... Look at the one inside the magazine, it shows it better.

    Ok, I can see why that might be called Shadow Play. Depends on the color hues that you use. Have fun making it and post a pic when you are done!! :D

    Jeeze, I am sorry everyone but it seems I am looking for Fons and Porter "Kids Quilts - Summer 2009". This issue of their magazine is also no longer available but according to their website, this issue has the Shadow Play quilt pattern. Sorry for the mix-up and thanks to all of you who looked for me.

    You can get a whole years worth of Fons & Porter magazines on CD www.shopfonsandporter.com Each year is $19.97, if you can't find the single issue here's an option.

    :thumbup: Yep! That's the one. I think I will have to order the DVD of the 1400 Series to get the pattern. Thanks

    Have you thought about using the public Library or the library consortium near you? I even bet you could draft that block (traditionally or by computer) and play w/ the colors on EQ, if you have that software. Cheers, Cathy in MA

    Did you see the magazine with the pattern on the website, under Back Issues? That should have the pattern....
