    HI, I am not on line very often, but I am trying to find out the name of a quilt for my mom. We were going through some OLD Quilt World Magazines last weekend and came across an article about Richard Cleveland -- Vermont Quilt Show. Anyway, in this article there were pictures of quilts and all were identified (except the one we really liked). If anyone has QuiltWorld Omnibook Spring 1983, the quilt is on page 31. It looks as if it is made of all triangular shapes and is a bouquet of flowers. I will try to get a copy of the picture and send it along. Thanks in advance.

    Just an idea, think it might be Brides Bouquet, and in this months Fons & Porter Mag they have a picture, they call it Nosegay. They dated it around the 1930's, sure is pretty.

    Hi Retro, it kinda clicked, probably because the magazine had just arrived and I had looked at it closely. McCalls is a great site isnīt it.

    Thank you. I checked the site last night after receiving Elle's suggestion on the name of the quilt. It was exactly what we were looking for. Can't wait to get started.

    prsajl Anytime...OOOH, you'll have to keep us posted on the progress. You know, there will be a purple noodle swap in July if you're looking for different scraps. Info's posted on the classified/swap area from the home page. I'm doing it to keep for my Bride's Bouquet and have some pinks saved, too but I can always use more fabric. ;-)

    Retro, those are the best ones I have found. Love the foundation piece ones which I have just got into. Have you found any others.

    log cabin

    http://www.freequilt.com/piecing.html various blocks

    http://www.planetpatchwork.com/fndpiece.htm several 6" patterns

    http://www.quickquilts.com/pbp/ pretty tree pattern, swirl log cabin, etc

    click free patterns and projects at http://www.quickquilts.com/pbp/ for bowtie, stars, etc.

    Cool Sampler blocks at http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/patt7/

    Hope this is helpful to you. I have other patterns, too if you're interested. Just let me know what types you like best other than the piecing....I'm afraid I haven't spent much time saving piecing sites but if you use a search engine for free foundation piecing you should get some good results. Happy Sewing!! :D
