    I just did a quick search on google and don't see one, I agree with Sadiemae, I don't think one exists.

    I didn't buy the book either. Here are the measurements I used. I don't remember how much fabric I used for the blocks, I generally bought 1/2 to 1 yd pieces.

    Overall size = 62 x 86
    Block 12
    4 blocks x 6 blocks
    24 blocks total
    Inner border 1 & blocks & binding - 2 yd
    Outer border 6 & blocks Orange easy riders - 2 yd

    Cut:
    24 - 8.5 squares
    24 8.5 x 4.5 rectangles
    24 12.5 x 4.5 rectangle

    It's interesting that they used 1/2 inch seams!

    I bought the book and I found it well worth it! Love the turning twenty. Some simular ones for free are out there.

    Get out a piece of graph paper. Begin by marking a 6 sq by 6 sq. unit. On the right side of it, mark a 3 sq. by 6 sq. piece that runs the length of the 6 square unit. Next mark a 3 sq. by 9 sq. piece running along the bottom of the other two pieces. Mark dark enough to be copied. Enlarge the graph paper drawing to suit your self. Cut into three units, the tape those to another piece of paper and add the quarter inch all around for each piece.

    This is how I made my pattern. I'm not about to pay for something I can draw myself.

    I have never made one, but I always understood the Turning Twenty is made from 20 different fat quarters, each cut into 4 different shapes-squares and rectangles. I would think that you could stack up the fat quarters in a quantity that works for you, cut out the same shapes from them, then arrange the cut pieces so that they fit into the size quilt you are looking for. Could be long and narrow, could be short and wide. Add a border if you'd like. Anyway, that is what I have on my list of things to do. I always use graph paper or Excel when I create my projects, so this would be fairly easy to draw out. I have the QuiltCut 2, so should be easy cutting up to 10 fat quarters at a time.

    Being a "Cheap-O", I try to draft my own patterns of "gotta have" projects.
    It usually works after some trial and error.
