Greetings Pam, does this pattern include yardage amount requirements and cutting instructions for cutting from basic yardage of fabric instead of fat quarters, jelly rolls, etc? I cut from yardage of fabric.
Or does anyone know the answer to my question? Thanks
Does anyone know why it calls for black homespun cotton? What is the advantage to that? THis is only my second quilt.
My daughter chose this for the quilt I'm going to make for her. While the pattern seems fairly simple to follow, I can see where there might be some confusion with the 32 strips of black fabric. I think including what I know as "sub-cutting" instructions, would help that. An example: Block B - Cut 12, 9 x 1 1/2 inch strips. I've completed one block and really like how it turned out. I'm making a total of 24 blocks and will use the leftover fabric to complete the border. I will attemtp to upload it once I get it finished.

This looks exactly like the cover quilt pattern from the October 2011 issue of Quilters World Magazine (it was called Asian Scrappy Road there)...
I have never seen that magazine we have been selling this pattern since early 2009 maybe someone has pirated it
It would be helpful if the changes were noted in the newer version.
Only the cover sheet has changed to show sizes.
What is the difference between this pattern and the Easy Stained glass pattern (i.e., the green bordered one you have shown)? Are the finished sizes the same?
Nothing they are the same, but look totally different using different colour schemes
I have had this pattern long enough to pick out fabric and lay out the design. I hope mine comes out as beautiful as the ones shown here.
I am a beginner quilter can anyone tell me the difficulty of this before I purchase it? I have downloaded patterns before that said was supposed to be easy, but I found that not to be the case. Thanks!
this is very easy and if you have a question you can always email me.
well, the link I followed didn't say anything about COST -- sheesh.or that you have to JOIN another group...
I agree- it could have at least listed the price
it is cheaper on Craftsy to download or you can purchase a hard copy from sew4fun.com.au for $10
I just purchased this pattern, not realizing it was a download. I do not have a working printer. Is it possible for you to mail this pattern to me? Nancy A.
All the patterns I've bought or looked at on Craftsy are download only. I'm sure the cost of the patterns takes in to account the fact that the sellers don't have to buy printing ink and paper or pay for p&p. The pattern should be in your pattern file on your account. You should be able to print it off from a friends computer if you log into Craftsy or your local library may have printing facilities.
Wow. Beautiful. I love stained glass and quilts and this is a wonderful representation of both. Well done.
Wow, what a beautiful pattern, I love it! Plan on buying the pattern soon :)
I finished my top quilt. My daughter wanted me to use some of her old t-shirts for the back. it's all sandwiched. I'm scared to actually quilt it! What do you suggest? I've only hand quilted my finished quilts. This one is about 75 x 90. I want to finish on my machine...
I wanted to finish my daughters on my machine but then decided to tat it. Used all kinds of dmc floss which was fun and also wrote little things on her quilt. Like; I love you; the entire song You are My Sunshine and other little notes on it. On the front and back. This way with her living in NYC she will always know I love her and this will be with her forever. I'm so glad i did that too. Enjoy quilting your beautiful quilt.
The quilt sounds beautiful but I would be a little concerned with tee shirt material, as I mentioned the black fabric must not twist..
The tee shirt material framed in black sashing and sandwiched with woven cotton fabric plus Warm and White batting did fine with my mid arm quilter via fmq. I used coats and Clark dual duty all purpose polyester thread, ball point needles or jersey needles (sizes 14 or 16), and loosened my tension a bit because the thread and needle need a little extra thread and room to pull thru the knit. Oh I slowed my pace a bit too.
One more thing--I used 505 spray adhesive to keep the sandwiched pieces from shifting. The spray is gentle to the environment, doesn't gum up my needles or machine, the pieces can be readjusted, and spray washes right out. Just don't spray around your machines. Also, I quilted with tee material facing upward because I thought the very pliable tee material might get pushed into the hole of the needle plate if the tee material faces downward or is in direct contact with the needle plate so I could keep an eye on it.
Just purchased this and plan on starting it today. I needed a quick, easy pattern and this certainly fits the bill. I just love this design, thank you so much for putting it on Craftsy and selling it.
Very beautiful...plan to purchase the pattern.
I just made my first square. I've only made simple 9 patch quilts before and never had anything like the black strips in your quilt. when i started sewing one set of squares would end up smaller than the next. I quickly realized that's what should happen. When I connected the two sides to the middle vertical strip I didn't line up horizontal strip. It looks like if I line up the horizontal strips the top will be very short. I actually like the way it looks but once I get a full square complete should it be fairly square or will some of the pieces be off a little?I will up load my first square to craftsy.I cut everything as specified but I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong with my piecing,
If you do accurate 1/4"seams and follow the directions there should be no difference in the two sides of the block. I always make the quilts before I load the patterns for sale and in this case I have made two quilts with no problem so I am not quite sure what you have done to make them different.
I remember doing my first 9" square quilt. It will help you so much when you do other quilts. Enjoy
I've never quilted before and would love to try this pattern as my first quilt. Since I don't know what I'm doing, I'm confused about fat quarters. This says it takes 12 fat quarters (one for each block of colors), but when I look into fat quarters, they are a single piece of fabric (and there are much more than 12 different fabrics here), so is it really 12 "sets" of fat quarters with each set containing at least "x" different fabrics?Thank you in advance for all of your help :)
It takes 12 cut up fat quarters. So if you buy a bunch of fat quarters in the colors you want then cut them into the different sizes you will have enough to mix and match for you quilt. The quilt shown probably used scraps from other quilts she had made. I bought about 30 fat quarters from Jo anns (on sale) and have so much fabric left over I'm going to make a second one for my sister in law. Disclaimer: This is the first time I've made this quilt.
Sorry, I realized I didn't completely explain. You can buy single fat quarters or packs of them. You only need 12 total this pattern.
Thats so good to hear. I want to do this one and plan on getting the pattern too.
Im a new quilter so forgive me for having to ask this question (rolling eyes at self) but what size is the finished block? I've read the pattern and gotten two different numbers. Somehow Ive managed to confuse myself like you would not believe! LOL Thank you and again sorry to have to ask the obvious!!
each block should end up 15" square.
I too come up with two different numbers. If I add blocks A, M, and F. It is 16.5" But then I add blocks A, M, H, I, and J it comes to 17.5". As near as I can tell those blocks added together should be the same. I'm a novice at making quilts so I am not ever really sure about what I'm doing, so I double check the patterns and then wonder if my figures are correct. Should blocks F and L really be 6.5" instead? I'm anxious to start. My son picked this pattern for his wedding quilt. It's lovely!
Ok my hubby is an estimator and I knew he would be able to figure out what I was calculating wrong and he did! I was only calculating in one quarter inch seam instead of two. I know that might not make sense to anyone but the pattern works out, and I didn't want to leave anyone with a negative take on this pattern.
I just cut out all of my color blocks. I'm making this for my 14 year old daughter, I've only make a few 9 square quilts before so I'm excited to try something more challenging. I've added one row on the side and bottom to fit her bed. I can't wait to share my progress!
Just bought the pattern...can't wait to begin! I'm already in love with it.
What jaw dropping pretty pattern!! I just bought it and I can't wait to try it. I usually make quilts for everyone else but not this quilt! I'm going to make it and KEEP for my hubby and I. LOL I'm not even going to show this to my daughter! :o)
I am really confused by this pattern. "Cut 32 by 1 inch strips across black fabric ( Blocks B, D,E,G,I, K and M)" how many 32 x 1 1/2 inch strips do I cut and why does it have to be 32 all the lengths of those blocks are different."Cut 8 by 2 inch strips across fabric for outside binding" How many strips of the binding do I need? Do I use the same black fabric as I use for the blocks?"Cut 7 of 6 inch lengths across fabric for final border." 6 1/2 inches x What? How wide does it need to be?
That comment sounded mean! I didn't mean it to be! I finally found the seller's e-mail address and contacted her for help.
The pattern is really self explanatory Megan I hope my email to you clarified it for you.
Could you email me your response to Megan's comment. I am a little confused.
If you need help please email me, I always send an email to my buyers so you should have my email address
Very nice Bob. I am partial to Quilts like this.
http://pinterest.com/pin/506795764287728531/hope this works
Is this quilt as you go ?
no it is simple joining then adding the three layers together before either quilting or stitch in the ditching.
Wow Bob thats a smashing quilt....it's breath taking .I'v just started to quilt....when Im done the one Im doing I'll give it a bash....Canada 's winter hasn;t been nice this year ...... does this pattern make a queen or king size bed lovie...thank you Julie
This is around the size for a double bed but could easily be adapted to make it larger. regards Pam
Here's the one I made from the pattern :-) [IMG]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b154/Quilting1/ChurchQuilt11_zps75cd0cd1.jpg[/IMG]

Yes, copying and pasting the link works and it's BEAUTIFUL!
Very beautiful!! Thank you for making the pattern available.
I absolutely love this pattern! Does the quilt pattern include instructions for the table runner?
The table runner is a separate pattern I have priced these so they are affordable for everyone
Just purchased this pattern and can not wait to get it started...such a beautiful pattern...
Just ordered the pattern cannot wait to try it!
Can anyone tell me what size the largest squares are so I will know if the fabric I already have in mind to use will work or not? The scraps won't be a problem just need to know how large the biggest sqyaures are. Thank you!
If you have pieces about 11"square you 'will be fine
Thanks so much. My fabric should be just fine. Looking forward to getting started as soon as Christmas is over. Love this pattern.
I think I need to do this and give it to my husband as a Christmas gift :)
It says, 12 fat quarters, but I see many more than 12 fabrics in this photo. Please advise, thanks ;)
You can use all different fabrics from your stash as I have done or you can just use one fat quarter to each completed colour block.
Love this pattern! It's so gorgeous!!!!!! Maybe I will give it a try after I finish the lap quilt I'm working on right now.
It's so beautiful that i can't wait to do it myself!!! It truly brings to mind the cathedrals of Europe. Absolutely gorgeous!
This is sooo beautiful - I can't wait to make one too!
I love the look of this quilt, it's beautiful!
I just Love this with top. I recently finished a donation Asian fabric quilt top and couldn't be happier. I just.might have to tackle this one.
Trudy if you need any help just email, I can't wait to see your quilt, regards Pam
