Question Parisian Nights Quilt pattern from Connecting Threads?

I received my new CT catalog in the mail today and on the last page is a quilt kit "Parisian Nights". I think the pattern would be perfect for a quilt I'm making for my MIL. I've been searching for a pattern and was leaning towards Turing Twenty since the fabrics have large patterns that I would like to show. I think this new pattern would be even better.

I can't find it on the site. On the page before they are selling a Parisian Baskets quilt kit and pattern but the Nights is only listed as a kit.

Is the pattern known in the quilting world as something else? Anything like it you can refer me to. I'm happy to buy a pattern by book or download.

I'm a new quilter but an experienced sewest because of this I would like to try to keep it fairly simple, no joining of 16 points at one point.

Thank you for any help.

That is it! I don't want the kit, just the pattern. I already have most of my fabric for my MIL's quilt.

It really doesn't look to hard to figure out the pattern. It's some setting triangles and some squares and rectangles.

I really like that quilt and was thinking of making it for a wedding quilt.

I agree with quilter2090, it's not that hard of a pattern to figure out.

If you look at the kit contents on the site, it tells you how much you need of each fabric so you can make sure you have enough to do the quilt. Also, it appears that the blocks are 13" finished. Just guessing now, -- maybe a 9" center with 2" borders for the one square, half of them with a dark border and half with a light border. The others maybe a 5" center with 4" borders reversing the light and dark colors. Hope this helps. Ann

This pattern is super simple to figure out on graph paper. Give it a try.

I don't doubt it is a simple pattern to do but I only have at best an hour a week to do any kind of craft. Spending week or two working out the scale and converting it to a twin would take a few weeks. I would prefer to buy a pattern to contribute to a designer who has done the work for a quilt like this.

I was thinking it looked like a 12 inch block. One is 8 inches with a 2 inch borders around it. The second is a 4 inch block with 4 inch borders arount it. These are finished measurements. Don't forget to add 1/2 inch to each for seam allowances.
