    Identify Quilt and Locate Pattern

    I am researching for a friend who needs assistance in locating the name and pattern of this quilt. Thanks!

    "Help! I need to find the pattern for this quilt quick!!! Obviously, I used to have it because I made this one, but somehow, I've lost it. It's an older Fons & Porter pattern. We're trying to make 400 quilts for returning troops at Ft. Riley, KS and I like this pattern because it goes together very quickly, yet looks really good. Does anybody have this pattern?"

    Thank you!

    It looks like a fairly simple pattern to replicate without a pattern. Can you just measure the squares and add seam allowances? Count the squares in a block? Etc. The flags are strips and a block sewn together. The stars look like a piece of material with a star pattern. Since you have the quilt to measure, it shouldn't be too hard.

    I think most people who have been sewing for very long could reproduce this with a picture as good as this one and directions for the finished size of the quilt. Forgot to say "Hi Neighbor." I live in Midland and moved here from Lubbock. Have a sister-in-law that used to teach in Wolfforth.

    Thanks! Midland! This has been home since 1964 when we moved from Anton, just down the road apiece!

    Guess she can just buy the flag block and work on other blocks; will see if I can't draw up a pattern for her! Thanks for all the replies! Appreciate the time!

    Teresa, I would email this pic you have to Fons & Porter and see if they can help you with obtaining the copy of the magazine this was printed in. I did this once and they even gave me the copy of the magazine at a discounted price. It would be well worth the try! Good luck in your search.

    Somebody check my math, but here is what I came up with:

    The HST height and width is 6.5 stripes. If stripes are 1.25", then the HST is 8.125" (8 and 1/8). The stars are 6 stripes high, and 8 stripes wide, so that piece is 7.5 x 10.0. The long stripes are the same as 3 HST, so those are 24.375 (24 and 3/8). The short stripes are 24.375 - 10 = 14.375. If you add a 6" border, that puts your finished quilt at ~ 61 x 85, so you'd use a twin size batting. These are all finished sizes so you have to add seam allowance.

    If you want it a bit smaller (and also avoid the 1/8" measurements) your finished stripes are 1" wide, HST is 6.5", stars are 6 x 8, long stripes are 19.5", and short stripes are 11.5".

    Someone please check me as I am not a morning person!

    If you get a pattern, I am asking that you share it with me. Our guild is making quilts for the FT. Riley soldiers also. I have made two already. I also make QOV for other groups and would like to have this pattern. Really like the quilt and it doesn't look too hard. Thanks for all you are doing.

    I did find the flag pattern at http://www.spunsugarquilt.com/2010/0...atriotism.html and the squares are just cut on the diagonal and pieced to form the chevrons. Thank you to every one who took time to reply. I so appreciate your help and I believe Ms. Raylene will be working with the group. Thanks again! As a side note to Ms. Ellen, "Non sibi sed patriae"! I am a Very Proud Marine Mom X2 myself, so SEMPER FI! God bless all of you, and have a great weekend!

    I love this site! I had visited another board (which shall go unmentioned) and no one ever responded to my query - I will have to delete my account with them! lol But you are so right! I had not expected these many responses - overwhelming! And I so totally appreciate everyone taking time out of their day for this one quest! God Bless!

    Stars & Stripes Quilt

    Thank you so much to Ms. Stacey for sending me the info! You made a lot of quilters very happy today! Know that your concern will touch hundreds of our wounded warriors when they wrap themselves in the quilts that my friend and her group will be sewing and donating to them as they go through their healing process. You are awesome! God Bless You for your care and concern....this group is the best! Keep sewing! and let us keep giving! Thank You! Thank You!
