So sorry to tell you "no," it isn't available. My skills do no lie in pattern making for complex designs, only in making quilts!

Gorgeous! When you start a project like this, do you go to your fabric stash first or look for inspiration at a fabric store or just start drawing? How do you decide how much fabric you need for the various colors and motifs?

Usually I pick my colors and a quilt block I have wanted to play with and start from there.. In this case, I had made a yellow and blue quilt with various New York Beauty blocks the year before for a raffle quil for my guild. I wanted one for my own so I started to make the blocks for the center. All of the fabric was pulled from my stash, but as I made more blocks, I would add blues and yellows to fill out the quilt. Very quickly, I decided to change the setting and basically designed the quilt on the design wall as I went. There may only be 2 colors in one of my quilts but there are usually over 100 fabrics. I seldom buy more than 1/2 yard of any fabric but I did have 2 yards or so of the variegated blue that I used for the background. Variegated fabrics are very useful and I collect them when I see them. Hope this helps!
