    Need to find pattern "Catch me if you Can"

    My daughter has been taking care of my Quilting Board and everything that I had going with fabric. She has learned a lot and in going through my stash has gathered all the bright batik fabric and put them in a pile with a picture of the pattern 'Catch me if you can' I have looked a several sights and can not find the pattern. I told her if I can find the pattern I will get it and to expect the quilt in about 5 years. She said 'Good' you are planing on staying around a while. Love that Girl. Please help.
    Life is Great and then I have to go to WORK.

    I did a Google search. Looks like the designer's website has it available.

    So worth it! You're lucky to have a supportive DD with a great attitude who will obviously treasure that quilt. You'll put love in each stitch.

    The pattern by Jacqueline de Jonge is similiar to a Judy Neimeyer quilt. There is a quilt shop that specializes in both quilt designers called "Quilting By The Bay" in Panama City Florida. http://store.quiltingbythebay.com/st...6&parent_ids=0
    This may be a good place to start because of their strong familiarity with her patterns. The price for the pattern is a tad less too. Best of Luck on this adventure!

    That is a stunning quilt and I agree with others, it would take me more than 5 years to finish it. LOL

    What a pattern!! The paper piecing makes things come together nicely. Project well worth the effort! Neat that your DD appreciates your work!

    Me, too, but it would be a beautiful quilt. At least the pattern comes with all the papers to piece.

    For me, it would be 10 years. Have been working on a DWR for almost 4 years. The "Catch Me" quilt is beautiful, but not for me. It's definitely a WOWSER!

    OH MY!!! I've signed up for a PP Club at LQS, but I don't even think the teacher would be able to show me how to do this one. It is beautiful.

    I would LOVE to make that quilt!!! Although the paper pieces is included, I would not want to spend $60 on a pattern... If anyone ever sees it on sale, let me know!!!

    Now that others have given you the source for the patterns here is my limited two cents on this potential project:

    I am mostly a self taught quilter, sewing for a bit over two years with a disabled dominant hand... and a little over 4 months ago I tackled a Jacqueline DeJonge paper pieced pattern called "Curling Colors." I went so far as to buy her DVD and while it was helpful in some ways, if you understand paper piecing you might find it a bit redundant but it was enlightening. The obvious secret to anything this complex is to not get ahead of yourself, to slowly progress and in my case learn to set seams and carefully press each part to keep the intersections "squared" so that everything lines up with the next section. Perhaps three quarters of the way into this project I discovered the technique of using freezer paper and NOT sewing through the pattern, thus eliminating the tedious part of ripping away all those miniscule parts of paper trapped in the stitching and sometimes distorting your hard earned effort when you contort the sewing to rip the paper. I also found/learned a glue basting technique that helped putting curves together and using a zipper foot to get into those tight curves for a better precision. The long and the short of it is that if I can do it so can almost anyone!

    A more experienced quilter would likely know all of what I have mentioned and a whole lot more but sometimes inexperience, the desire to succeed, this board and the internet is the best teacher. When you get into doing this (and by all means go for it) and need some minor league coaching....drop me a line.

    Watch you DD conquer this -- fearless comes with those who don't know that this could be...well, difficult? Good luck to her, she'll do it!

    HOLY MOLY! This is way beyond anything that I would dream of tackling.
    Good Luck to you. With the thought of your daughter in every stitch, I am sure you can tackle this.......just might take a while!
