Default Looking for old pattern

My daughter bought a bunch of old F&P quilting books (2006, 2007). I found several patterns that I liked, and one that I would like to have.
Inside the back cover of the Nov/Dec 2007 issue, there is a picture called Flower Power that could be ordered as a kit (#Flower - $108). I looked throughout the magazine, but did not find any other reference to it. I looked on-line for it, and came up with multiple quilts with that name, but not that quilt.
I called the number provided beneath the picture, but that is subscription services. She gave me another number, that person gave me another, then that person also gave me another. The last person suggested FB, so I tried that, but did not find it. I typed in "how to locate patterns from OOP magazine" but that did not yield any results, either.
Does anyone know of this pattern, or where I can buy a copy of that pattern? I'm sorry, but I don't know how to upload a picture with my phone

I did a bit of looking on line, I'm thinking that back page was an advertisement page for the magazine and products?

Without having seen the picture ourselves, it's really super hard to figure out among the many "flower power" projects out there it could be. But some of our members do have the digital or physical copies and may be able to look it up.

When you do a google on "fons and porter flower power kit" there is one actual kit being sold on ebay. That is not the pattern you are searching for?

Was the picture an advertisement for a shop, or a manufacturer, or was it directly related to the magazine, such as part of an article? Does it list a designer name?

Nanac: I am also looking for a pattern from F&P. Searching online led me to the "Quiling Daily website where some patterns from different magazines are offered for sale.This site may have the pattern that you are looking for.

I did find the pattern that I want offered for sale but I do not know if this website is still viable. I'm not sure if I should take a chance and order it. I could not find a phone # to call to verify if the site still offers what it shows.

The picture that I was referring to appeared to be an advertisement to buy that kit. I called the number that was listed beside the picture. I did not expect them to still have that kit available, but I was hoping for the pattern. I tried multiple ways to locate it, but couldn't. I received a PM from another board member, who told me where to find that pattern.
Thanks to every one who replied. I knew that somebody from the Board would have the right answer.

Have you tried looking in earlier issues of the same magazine? F&P

I just Googled "Fons & Porter Flower Power" and found a YouTube demo listed. Is this the quilt you want?

The demo I found is 52 seconds long. I did find reference in an episode listing for the TV series that the pattern is in the Love of Quilting magazine. Link to purchase digital mag below.


https://www.amazon.com/Porters-Quilt.../dp/B00C69FVI4


Also found here, but the link to buy is broken. But you can look at the contents. Wall quilt, first picture?

Thank you to everyone who answered. I did find a pattern from F&P, also titled Flower Power, but it was not the one I was looking for. Another Board member gave me the information for what issue it was actually in (earlier in that year), so I was able to obtain the pattern that I was looking for. As soon as I got the digital copy, I started cutting it out. It is mostly an applique pattern, so it will take me a while to get it done. Hope to have it completed by my GGD's birthday in May.
