February Monthly Goal

Welcome, February.

I haven't been able to completely say goodbye to
Christmas and I'm already missing the colors of fall.
Thank goodness for quilting because no matter
the time of year, we can always get our fix of
any season all year-round in our sewing room.

So, February-schmebruary.
I'm working Christmas quilt.

The dot fabric along with a few of the others were
just purchased after Christmas but the rest are
from my stash.  Using up the stash = happy.

I have almost all of the 1200 pieces cut out but
I'm waiting on a couple green fabrics to arrive.
These should be here soon, along with the
pattern, (I'll get to that) so I think it's safe to
make my February goal to get the blocks for
this snowflake quilt pieced. 

There has been some interest in this pattern so
I felt I needed to share the problems I've come up
against in locating it.  First, I do not advocate the
sharing of patterns unless they are available for free.
 I am always happy to support anyone who has
gone to a lot of work to create them.

This quilt was shared as a free pattern.
However, the link above will only provide page one
of the instructions and there doesn't seem to be
anyone to contact about it.  "Free Quilt Patterns"
by Stashify offers no support on their patterns
or links.  Quilt Magazine, where the pattern was
originally printed, is no longer in publication and I
can't find the author. Other quilters also seem to
come up empty so, unless the pattern police tell me
differently, if anyone is serious about making this,
I am willing to privately share the missing info since
I have finally tracked down the issue of Quilt on
eBay.  I feel this is acceptable in light of all these

*Update:  I now have the pattern ready to share.
Please note this is paper-piecing construction.

Good luck to everyone on their monthly goals!

 Happy quilting!

pretty pattern too bad there is problems with locating the information on it! hope you can make the whole quilt now with no problem

This is such a pretty quilt; it's too bad the pattern is so difficult to locate. Glad you found a copy. Once you have the magazine, you'll know the designer and maybe you can share that with us then. Anyway, the fabric is pretty and the quilt is going to be amazing.

I really like the quilt. I could put it in my EQ8 and see what comes out, but I am trying so hard to not start anything new. I love your fabric selection! Hugs

What a beautiful quilt! It’s going to be fun to see how you do with your OMG.

Beautiful quilt--too bad it seems impossible to get the pattern. I would love to have the piecing info when you receive your copy of the magazine.

Yes, I'd like the paper piece pattern please. I like the dotted fabric for your background.

Love this quilt and would like to give it a try. I, too, have exhausted avenues trying to find the pattern or the magazine.
