    Pattern came from a book called "Dear Pam . . . Teach Me Your Quick Quilting Techniques." by Pam Bono. Unfortunately, the book is no longer in print, but you can buy used copies on amazon.com used booksellers. If you go to amazon.com and type in the name of the book and when it pops up click on used books, you will find it in fair to excellent condition from $6.50 and up with a $3.99 shipping charge. I have bought 10 to 15 used quilt books from amazon in "good condition" and have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of the book. The Cornflowers pattern starts on page 31 of the book. I seriously wouldn't spend the money to get the top of the line condition of this book at amazon as just "good condition" books I have ordered recently have shown up looking almost brand new.

    Oh, I almost forgot, some of the fabrics in the quilt look like solids but they really weren't. The white back ground fabric was a tone on tone. The yellow had tiny little white flowers on it. The dark purple had a very faint flower etched in a darker purple on it. The medium purple had a crackled print on it and the other purple had very tiny flowers on it. I got all the purples at Hobby Lobby. The medium green was a marbled fabric that I got at Joann Fabrics and the mint green was a Kona cotton solid fabric also from Joann's. I only bring this up because I saw that a few people had made comments about how beautiful the quilt was and how nice to use solids. It was so hard to tell from the photos, but in reality only one fabric was a solid, the minty green. So, I hope this helps you!! Enjoy making the quilt!

    I agree hands down, the quilt is a sensation! As for pillow shams, I am visualizing two exactly as the center (smaller to fit the size of the pillow case), side by side, & then the case made a bit bigger with a two inch or two & a half inch flat border on all sides. Hope I made that clear? Then for toss pillows, use the flowers on one side, & maybe the geometric shapes on the other side for variety. To buffer it all, how about some of the long round neck pillows in plain white or one of the very tiny print solids you described? Instead of using lace as most do, use some of the coordinating, lesser used color for prairie points on the seam ends.

    Just my thoughts and ideas.... Judi

    Absolutely stunning Sandi!! I love the depth created with the dark and medium purples. If this is the magic you create with horrible neck pain, I can hardly wait to see what you can do post-op. Good luck with your surgery!! I have no ideas to offer for shams, but with your quilting savvy, I'm sure you will make something glorious!!
