I want to make a full-size quilt and after a half-day trip to Olympia I couldn't find a good pattern. I found some good books but am not ready to pay $30 for one.
I'd like to find some quilting directions online, patterns you can buy and download. I hate templates, I like strip methods or that trick to make half-square triangles or whatnot. If anyone has some tips, it would be much appreciated!

I like these Kelly http://www.andoverfabrics.com/QuiltDesigns/QuiltDesigns.asp

Hope you find a house soon - I think you are surviving fine - sometimes it is all we can do.

Omigosh Nancy! That's a list! I am a member in FreePatterns.com and have gotten some nice patterns from there for quilts, my first two projects were from there.
