Default Needing Help Finding A Quilt Pattern

I just received the new Keepsake Quilting Catalog and there is a kit far out of my reach to purchase. Besides I have the perfect fabric in my stash to make this quilt. I called Keepsake Quilting and the pattern is only available in the kit. I've checked Wilmington Prints to see if it was a free pattern could not find. The customer service representative assured me it was only available in the kit.

I'm wondering if anyone here might recognize the pattern? I'm willing to pay for the pattern. I'm absolutely not creative enough to chart it out on graph paper and not savvy enough to use EQ software. I'd be willing to pay someone to do that for me. I'm so wanting to make this quilt!!!!

Here is the link to the Keepsake Quilting kit. https://www.keepsakequilting.com/Bot...mington-Prints

That is a beautiful pattern. I love the fabrics also. But, I too have fabric at home that would work. I don't know anywhere you can purchase the pattern. But, maybe if you wait a bit for the kits and fabric to sell out, they may offer the pattern then.

I could probably figure out the center of the quilt myself. But, I would definitely have a problem with the on point settings and figuring out the dimensions.

Thanks for sharing though. I really like the pattern.

Try eBay. A quick search came up with a couple listings for the fabric. Some offered the pattern free with a fabric purchase.

I think it's just a square in square and not on point for the main part. You would do the 4 flying geese and then add strips to each side to make it square then add the triangles like you would with a square in square. Depending on how large you want the whole thing would be what would determine how big your blocks are and how small you want the flying geese to be.

It looks like it would be pretty easy to draw up, start with an 18" block x 4 = 72 plus a 6" border (4 inch pieced and 2 inch plain) for 84x84.

The flying geese unit would be the same 4" as in the border. That is, each geese unit is 2" x 4". Add the 2" strips, and then you need a 9.5 square cut in half along the diagonal for the corners. I'd probably cut at 10" and trim down.

Correction made for setting triangles, am drawing up the block but having some technical difficulties, should be able to post diagram ina couple.

Well, that was a bit of a surprise, as I drafted it out it is much happier as 17" blocks with a 6" flying geese unit. The sashing would be 3" instead of two and it should finish out at pretty much the correct size....

For 5 minutes of work it's what you get!

Edit: for a similar look and less work, make the 12" (finished) flying geese block (6" strip plus 3" frames), and alternate with solid 12" squares (finished, 12.5" cut). In that case you would set diagonally. As drawn it is a straight set.

Please note: Measurements shown on the block are finished sizes, not cut!

Sometimes it's an advantage to have started when I did (before rotary cutters) and in a small town with a couple of old quilt books in the library Back then pretty much all we had were block line drawings with no setting, cutting or other directions.

For a planned quilt (as opposed to a scrappy quilt) notice in putting the blocks together that is does matter which corners get which colors. The example uses dark and light prints. The blocks themselves are all the same and twist to form the secondary patterns. I would tell myself that the geese point the way and would probably put the light fabric on those ends but so long as you are consistent it doesn't really matter -- but the pattern designer balanced the dark backgrounds of the geese with the dark fabrics.
