    My Avatar pic quilt, bigger pic...

    Hi everyone,
    For those of you who have pm'd me wanting info, here is the larger pic of my avatar quilt. I made it as a bom at my lqs. It is 10 different patterns. The name of my set of patterns is: Schoolhouse Series by Sandi Ray. It also has "Learn a "skill a month" in this 10 month learning series.". It is the 1st quilt I ever made, other than a Sunbonnet Sue applique quilt I made by hand, and the little bit of quilting and sewing my wonderful grandma taught me many years ago. I still do some hand quilting, but after finding my great lqs, and making this quilt by machine, I love quilting both ways...and I will say this quilt along with my lqs teacher did teach me a lot about quilting!!
    2 years ago when I made this quilt, I tried to research it, and it seemed it was oop...last night I did a google search again, and I found the following link. It appears it has been re-released, and re-named...the colors are also different. Here is the link:
    http://www.pineneedlequiltshop.com/L...nfo/BOM-LTSBR1
    This is the only place I found it so far...I sure wish one could by a series quilt pattern without having to buy it as a kit; for those of us who have a ton of fabric and or want to choose our own colors...
    Regards all,
    Kif

    Cute quilt, and it does require a number of different skills, so it's a good teaching sampler.

    Wow! This is wonderfully bright and love the design!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Yes, I have the patterns, I just meant I love bom quilts, and I wish could by just the patterns on some of them that are only offered "kitted" with fabrics...and there have been several peeps who have pm'd me wanting to know where to get the pattern, the only place I am finding it offers it only in a kit, $24.95 a month...also, thanks to all of you who like the color scheme, I can't take credit for it as I made this quilt in a class at my lqs...the owner/teacher chose all the fabrics...lastly, I will admit, I do like it, but it is "busier" than I thought it would be....lol..

    Hi Kiffie,
    Great job on your first quilt! I live close to the one store that offers the kit, and I almost joined the Bom and monthly class.
    P.s.
    I hope your son had a lovely wedding this summer.

    I really do like your light background better than the black one in the original. Very nicely done.
