Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin

Threaded View
It was in the March 2006 "The Quilter." I bought the fabric for it,
but one of my kitties was very ill on hte magazine and it is no longer
useable. If anyone has the pattern, and would be willing to share it
with me, I'd appreciate it. It would not be a violation of CW, since I
would not be using it for gain. I would like to give this quilt to my
husband, who has stage-4 liver cancer. I'd like to get it done while
he is still around to appreciate it.

If no one can find a copy to share -- you could purchase a back copy -- here

http://www.thequiltermag.com/issues/backissues2006.shtml

Price is $6.99 plus shipping (which is probably as much as the mag).

Hopefully someone will be able to help you out.  I only keep back 1 year --  
so I only go back to Jan 2007.

Wish I could help.

Just make a copy of the picture of the rainbow log cabin
from the site and you can follow it when laying your
blocks out.  Just a suggestion.  I do that a lot on some of
my quilts.

Re: Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin
I checked my magazines, but I don't have that issue.  I wonder if you
contacted the publisher or the designer & pleaded your case if they would
agree to send you the pattern??  It's worth a try, I would think.  Here's
the name of the designer - Rainbow Log Cabin - Bright Log Cabin blocks
surrounded by a pieced border by Pat Forke

Wait - here's more info for you - Pat Forke owns Quakertown Quilts in Texas.
Try contacting her thru www.quakertownquilts.com  or 888-464-7845.  How can
she refuse your request, especially when you explain why you want the
pattern!

Pat Forke has owned Quakertown Quilts in Friendswood, Texas, for over 17
years. During that time Quakertown has expanded from 900 square feet to
5,000 square feet and branched out into the wholesale, design and mail
order/Internet business. Pat's prior life included teaching business classes
at both the high school and college level as well as working in both public
relations and human resources for Exxon Corp. Recently Pat earned a master's
degree in accounting and took several continuing education classes in
computer and business-related subjects.

Pat is a firm believer in the value of life-long education. For that reason,
she relies on American Quilt Retailer and other opportunities in the
industry for education. She said she feels there is not enough opportunity
for small business owners to network and learn from other business owners.
Pat welcomes the opportunity to write for American Quilt Retailer. This not
only helps other shop owners but also affords her the opportunity to learn
by investigating various topics and books.

I got the quilt magazine on eBay. I guess I thought of it at the same
time you did. If it actually turns out to have the March 2006 issue,
I'll be able to do this.

BTW: I actually did try to get the pattern from Quakertown Quilts. I
did not tell her why, but I tried to order the magazine, which was
listed as being in stock. She updated her website after I tried to
order.

Thanks all,
Joan

Re: Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin
HOOOoooooooooooEEE.   So glad you got your pattern, Joan.  If we hadn't had
a happy answer here, I would have gone on a 'dig' in my magazine stacks.
Get back with us if you bomb out.  We will get it for you one way or the
other.  (Don't ask.)    Polly

Re: Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin
Yeah she did and I didn't even know it was her bidding against me. Oh well.
I'll keep looking unless she wants to share it with me. How about it Joan,
would you mind sharing that pattern with me? I would greatly appreciate it.

Hugs,
Mika

http://www.thequiltermag.com/issues/gallery_mar06.shtml There is a
picture of the Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt at the bottom of this page - it
seems to be clear enough to copy the layout of the logs to make a
quilt without using the actual pattern.  jennellh

Re: Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin
I tried printing it Jennell. It came out real fuzzy but then I printed it on
a laser printer, not having a color printer. It didn't show the details well
enough to see the pattern. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Hugs,
Mika

Re: Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin
If you're concerned about the number of each color combo, these Field &
Furrows stripe arrangements always have the same number of each block
color combo.  It just works out that way.  So divide the number of
blocks you want for your finished quilt by the number of color combos
and that's how much of each combo you need.

http://www.quakertownquilts.com/images/MagazineAds/QuilterMagazine/Mar2006/QuilterMar06.jpg

The pictured rainbow has 6 color combos, green/yellow, yellow/orange,
orange/red, red/purple, purple/blue, & blue/green.) Hope that makes sense.
