    Is this the pattern from the Fons and Porter magazine about two years ago? It was featured on the front cover. Nice quilt indeed.

    Is it the quilt pictured on the front of the July/Aug. 2009 of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting? Some one had torn the pages of the pattern out of the magazine and sold the pattern on ebay.

    There are several auctions for the pattern and instructions from the magazine (the actual pages) on Ebay, and they are cheap. It is a beautiful quilt. :)

    Yes, I think it was featured in the Fons & Porter Magazine as found on google some email about the quilt which was dated back in 2007, I think

    Thanks for showing us your version w/out the applique.
    It's so pretty! I was thinking of making one w/out applique as well.

    That is the pattern that I am looking for that shows in all the pictures. I like the one without the applique. Hope I get the pattern from someone. Thanks

    The average quilting pattern is about 10$ now a days with shipping making it even more. So something under 5$ is basically a little more than 1/2 off. Good luck, and if you really love ethe pattern, go for it!

    There was another thread recently about this quilt, and if I'm not mistaken, this quilt is also in a book. Perhaps we could figure out which book, and the OP can check her library for it?

    Edited: Yes, it IS in a book! It's called "The Best of Fons & Porter: Scrap Quilts" and is on page 6.

    They included the whole pattern in that amazon preview - you could have the quilt cut by dinner time. :)

    Beautiful quilt pattern. I'll add this to my list of quilts I want to make before I die ... as of right now, I can't die for another 30 or 40 years and I'm 65 now. I better get busy.
