    I can’t get to/ find the celebrate quilt pattern. Is there a direct link or another name it’s under?

      Hi Tiffany,

      Unfortunately it looks like the Celebrate pattern has been removed by the pattern designer. You can find all of her current patterns here: http://www.craftsy.com/user/708459/pattern-store

      I hope this helps!
