Looking for a pattern - Rainbow Log Cabin

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

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. dreamboat

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

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

There is apicture of the Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt at the bottom of this page - itseems to be clear enough to copy the layout of the logs to make aquilt without using the actual pattern. jennellh

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

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.

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

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.

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