    Turning Twenty Again Quilt

    I am at my summer home in WI, and the book for my TURNING TWENTY AGAIN pattern is TX. I don't want to have to buy another book. Does anyone know of a FREE pattern online somewhere? If not, I'm going to the Madison Quilt Expo in a little over a week and will buy another book.....!

    I don't have the book, I seem to remember some discussion about this quilt and think it goes by other names. I would also like to make it. I hope someone comes along to help you.

    This has been asked several times. Turning twenty is a copyrighted pattern so, no, there's not a place you can get it for free. Sorry.

    Is there a library in town? Check for a copy there.

    And if the local library doesn't have it, ask if they can get it through interlibrary loan., and/or ask where the closest library is that has the book (or check for yourself using www.worldcat.org).

    You might want to consider a 2 slice layer cake pattern. You can watch a video on it from Missouri Star Quilt co. They use a layer cake, but I have done it with a layer cake and then just with fabric that I selected. The last one I made, I didn't even cut my fabric into layer cake sizes first (10 x 10). I just skipped that step and cut the fabric the sizes I needed. I have a picture of one I made with a layer cake though. It looks very similar to the Turning 20 pattern, and you can learn it by just watching the video once.

    Let me see if I can find a picture of my quilt, in case it helps. ....Okay, I found two. The first I just used five fabrics, and the second is from a layer cake.

    Maybe this pattern is close enough to what you are looking for.

    Which book are you after? I didn't realise there were 9 books on the site I just saw with hundreds of different patterns. Is it just a name or title used for a line of books.?

    Yes, I bookmarked that one. I have a bunch of FQs in fabrics that really don't match my current tastes. I see a lot of wickedly easy charity quilts coming soon.

    Same illusion is doing D9P. I do this pattern all the time.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    When my dad sold his Grapevine, Texas home and moved to Rhinelander, WI after mom died, he brought all my mom's quilting books and equipment to me, I will look when I get home if I have it I will send it to you.

    I saved the Wickedly easy pattern too. I think when DD gets here this weekend I will have her help me pick out a bunch of fabric and we will cut some kits up.

    Here, browse through these video's from Missouri Star Quilt Company: https://www.youtube.com/user/Missour...?feature=watch

    I'm currently working on a masculine flannel quilt using Jenny's Window Pane 9 Patch tutorial. It's really easy. Even though it uses charm packs and honey buns, I'm using fat quarters for the 5" squares and yardage for the 1 1/2" strips.

    Any of the precut tutorials you can just cut yardage from your stash if you have it.

    I really like both of them. Amazing how different colors can make 2 quilts look so different.
