    Searching for this Pattern

    Can anyone tell me where I can find the Pattern for this quilt? My friend loaned the pattern and never got it back. She said it was called Woodlands but I did a search and couldn't find it. Thought someone may have it or know the exact name of it. It was made over 20 years ago or so. She would love to make it again.
    Thank you.

    This is a very nice quilt! If no one knows the pattern source you can trace the applique designs from the quilt to make new templates.
    Got fabric?

    This is what I was going to suggest. A pattern that old is going to be pretty hard to find.

    It looks like a Jean Ray Laury pattern.

    Beautiful quilt. Don't you just hate that...you loan something to someone and you don't get it back. I would trace the applique and measure the blocks you should get ti pretty close that way.

    I do remember that quilt....and I think it was called Woodlands quilt..and I think it was probably closer to 30 years ago that it was a "popular" pattern...I hope you can find a copy.

    Trace the photo you posted and enlarge it on a copier, you may have to redraw it a few times as the lines will get thick and blurry as you enlarge. Also as it gets larger, you can cut it apart square by square and copy each block separately.

    Simply use it as inspiration and draw your own adaptations of the designs. They are very simple folk art patterns. Why make an exact copy of someone else's creative work when you can break new ground and create a one of a kind original!

    I think you should be able to use graph paper to figure out each block. Find out how big you want it and draw in the lines for the blocks. Then fill in each block with your own drawings as suggested by ghostrider. Have fun!

    remember you can always take the quilt itself to a copier and copy each piece. If you are doing folded under applique, just add a tad to each piece of fabric.

    I looked after the first mention of Jean Ray Laury, and didn't see anything close.

    Jean Ray Laury died in 2011, a great loss to the quilting and art world.
