    I am looking for the New Orleans Puzzle QUILT pattern. I have made the table topper and would like to do full quilt. Saw one this week in a store and it is a must do.

    Kitty sent me this link to show us what she's looking for:

    http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/hs118.shtml

    when i googled it yesterday, i found this photo of a table topper made from the New Orleans Puzzle. if you look very closely, you can see how it's constructed.

    i haven't found a pattern for a whole quilt top. i guess i'll add that to my list of things to do. just what i need. a longer list! :shock: :roll: :lol:

    wow! that is beautiful . . . and so tempting. i wonder if it is harder than it looks? looks like strip sets cut at 45 degree angles.

    that's all it seams to be. (sorry. i couldn't resist. :lol: )

    going beyond the table topper to a complete quilt will take some careful calculations, though, i think. but - Boy Howdy! - would it be worth the trouble!!! :!:

    That is a pattern I have tried to find for 2 years now.. I love it.. Thanks so much for the info.. I love the Star Spin.. I did check to see what a finished one would cost me and they wanted $2400.00... No way I could afford that...

    What a great pattern! I am simply going to have to buy that book!!!

    I wonder how she is getting around the copyright laws to sell these quilts. Anyone know?

    I saw a quilt like that in a small Amish Country store. I asked and they had one pattern left. I bought it a while back, but I haven't made one yet. It is one of those where I want the Perfect fabrics, I I don't have them yet:)

    I saw that quilt and fell in love with it so I ordered the pattern. You know where the pattern is? In my room waiting to be made.
    It sure is a scarey pattern!!

    Yes. I didn't find the directions very user friendly. Three of us did it together. One was pretty new to quilting, another worked in the LQS and I have been quilting for over 20 years and sewing for longer. All of us struggled and only 2 of us finished. The LQS one hasn't finished hers.

    I am glad to hear that. I thought maybe it was just me. It has become a very frustrating project.

    i don't think the law applies to what you make from the books instructions but to the book itself.
