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
contempary and gorgeous fabrics.

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

These are more than you will ever want. Your request sent me to my lists and decided to check them out. Many of them have instructions as well as patterns. What a time waster this computer is!! :cry: Good luck - has triangle patterns - nice site - have made a few from here - 1010 links to free quilts !! - interesting European links

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