    Need 'Free Yellow Brick Road Pattern'

    Does anyone have a FREE Yellow Brick Road pattern? I really want to try making one, but would like a FREE pattern. I've tried on Google without success. Anyone know where I can find one?? Thanks.

    I dont know of any free yellow brick road patterns, you are going to have to buy it to avoid copyrite infringement if you get a copy

    It's not a free pattern. I would just trade you mine for a fat quarter or something but it's packed in a box and who knows how long it'll be before I see it again. I hate moving.

    It is indeed a pattern for sale. However there are some free patterns that are very similar. Here's one - http://www.favoritefabric.com/cgi/co...on&key=PATWPEF

    yellow brick road is a commercial pattern--you could contact the designer & ask if she will give it to you free-but for one of us to share it with you would be a huge copyright infraction...commercial patterns made to be sold are generally not available free...the designer would not make any money. you could look at pictures of ybr quilts, then get a pad of graph paper & draw up your own- figuring out the size you want yours to be...figuring out on paper how large to cut each piece of a fat quarter----start with drawing a fat quarter- then segment it into pieces that look like the ones in the quilt....same way with turning 20 quilts.

    Scissor Queen is NOT alone, I am in the middle of a move too !! Can't seem to find anything but the toilet paper !! Yellow Brick Road is NOT a free pattern but as suggested, there may be other similar patterns that you may find that will work for your project as members have mention above.

    LOL, I'm pretty much down to the bare minimum now too. I even know which box that pattern is in. But it's a huge box and the pattern boxes are on the bottom. The box is at the bottom of a big stack of boxes right now. The sad part is, I know I'm never going to make that quilt and would be more than happy to just pass the pattern on.

    What makes this pattern unique? When I googled it I found a bunch of "similar" patterns. One site said "no two seams butt against each other, and no two blocks repeat the same color/pattern as the one next to it." which I can't see! Some say it's easy and some say they can't follow the directions!

    I made this Wickedly Easy quilt and a YBR this spring for my two nephews who were graduating from Highschool. They are Step-brothers, so i didn't want to make the same pattern for both. Both quilts turned out wonderfully. Quick and unique. I'd make both quilts again. I've heard that the designer of YBR is quite tenacious when it comes to defending the copyrights of her patterns.

    You can't SELL your pattern, but you can give it away!

    you would have to decide the size for your block and just go for it.

    You can sell patterns, the stores sell them all day long.

    Of course you can sell your pattern. You can't COPY it and sell the copies. I can sell the original, give it away or trade it for magic beans.

    I bought this pattern a few years ago, and it was well worth the money to me. I have made it up in several different color ways, mostly for baby quilts, but also lap size. It goes together fast and easy if you need a gift, and you have waited to the last minute, like a lot of us. LOL. If you really like it go for it, you will probably make more then one, especially when you see it done in different colors.

    Why not choose a pattern from MSQC? https://www.youtube.com/user/MissouriQuiltCo

    Or just do a disappearing 9 patch or disappearing 4 patch?

    Or post in the "Items for sale or trade" forum: http://www.quiltingboard.com/items-sale-trade-f20/
    I imagine someone would be willing to trade with you just make sure you put the pattern name in the title of your post.

    I have made this quilt. It was easy and went together quickly. I contacted the designer and asked about sharing it with my quilt guild and she was happy to have it shared with other quilters.

    Keepsake Quilting sells the pattern for $8.00 if you can't find it.
