Default 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.
