Looking for the strata quilt pattern that I thought would be in the Fons & Porter sept/oct magazine but it is not there. Do not want to buy the kit from lady fingers sewing studio as I thought it was too much money. Anyone have any idea the size of the block and the sizes of the strips. I have an idea on how it is contructed but just need some other info or a pattern that is similar. I can buy the material I think alot cheaper online. Any suggestions?

I wrote down the info when I saw the show since I loved the pattern. It is supposed to be in the F&P Love of Quilting Easy Quilts-Scrap Quilts which should be on the shelves in Sept. I keep looking to see if anyone has it sooner but haven't found it yet. Let us know if you find it.

The blocks will be ~8.5" finished.
http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-103507-1.htm

You'll have around 24 (or 28) different fabrics.
They probably cut a 1/3-1/2 yard of each fabric.
That's easily $75+.

Unless you're making it from stash, you're not going to be able to do it for much less $$ when you account for time, etc.
And they've done all the work by choosing the gradations. .

Plus the cost of the pattern (or the magazine), unless you've figured that out already.

You'd have enough extra for the binding and you can use the leftovers on the back.

You could try to make it from some of the Benartex Gradiation fabrics (and possibly get away with less fabric):
http://www.bryerpatch.com/cgi-bin/St...4.s0&lastmenu=

Or some similarly ombre striped fabric.

Call them and ask how much of each fabric is included.
They sell the dimples for $8/yard.
Easy enough to figure out how they do their pricing.

Make sure the pattern is in the kit, if you need that, and it is just not a fabric kit. Friend on another forum bought a F&P Kit, no pattern only fabric, when she called them back for the pattern, was told that she had to buy the book the pattern was in.. fortunately another member had the book so she was able to get the pattern.. I have noticed here at the LQS, lots of kits do not include the pattern now, only the fabric..

This is an old tv episode. It has been on our PBS several times. Are you sure it is still coming in a magazine? Hope so.

You could try Sewing with Nancy's "Versatile Ombre Quilting Part 1" which you can find at http://video.wpt2.org/video/1530329782/. I think the second quilt on that show uses four ombre fabrics. She is pretty detailed in the video, but she also sells detailed printed information.

Similar to this is tube quilting or "Summer in the Park", which you can find at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5WgTyqB8Pc.

I did a small Summer in the Park and enjoyed it. I may also try one of Nancy's Ombre quilts.

Here is a tutorial from here. It's called another name but it is the same thing.
