Every so often questions and comments come from readers that I think others would like to hear my response to. That’s when I feature them on the blog. This is one of those days….
I had an email from Michelle. She is on the hunt for a Civil War Tribute quilt pattern or even a kit…possibly even a UFO of that quilt. This is the quilt.
I would have happily parted with my pattern but I already donated it to Goodwill. Maybe one of you has one?
You can contact Michelle with this email address email@example.com if you have a pattern, kit, or UFO you might be willing to part with. Of course, Michelle is willing to pay for it along with postage. Please contact her if you can help.
I had an awesome mail call not long ago and many questions surrounded some of the donated quilt tops. Several people wanted to know the pattern for this quilt. Sadly, that wasn’t answered in the comment section. Maybe one of you recognizes it. If you do, please let us know by leaving a comment in the comment section.
For some reason, it looks like a Kim Brackett pattern. She makes the scrap basket books that use jelly rolls and other precuts. You can find her HERE on Amazon. I didn’t page through the many books to see if this pattern is actually in one of them. Do any of you know?? It’s such a pretty quilt, one of you is bound to have made it!!
This quilt also had many of you curious as to the pattern…. I think it’s a Sandy Gervais Moda line for the fabric and readers seamed to believe this to be Bonnie Hunter’s Garlic Knots pattern.
Garlic Knots is in my UFO pile. It does look VERY much like the block but Bonnie does sashing between the blocks on her version. I’m sure if you bought her pattern, you could simply leave out the sashing.
All of that lead me on a rabbit trail looking for her pattern to see if it’s for sale or free or what.
The block started with Addicted to Scraps, Bonnie Hunter’s column in Quiltmaker. If you’ve kept the issues, it’s the Jan/Feb 2014 issue.
Here is Bonnie’s finished quilt.
Hmm. I looked for it on her blog in the patterns for sale section and in the free pattern section and couldn’t find it. I’m sure I have the pattern as it is a UFO in my Dirty Dozen UFO collection. I’m sure I printed the pattern and was going to link it here for you.
Apparently, the pattern is gone. I’m guessing it was pulled and in the next book she publishes. (Pattern link has been found. Link in comment section)
Either way…the layout she provided isn’t the one in the original quilt top that was sent to me…I actually really love a different layout I found. Check out the picture below.
Follow this LINK to find a “hack” someone did on making the block. She also tells how to change the block to make it a larger size.
I found this baby-sized version…
Here is a fun version- the same block with a very different look.
Here’s one with more controlled colors.
I like this one too….
Here’s another version with flip corners.
Here’s one with a gray background…
How fun is this one with a rainbow effect?
Even one made with shirts.
Oh, my word…look at the rabbit trail you all took me down!! The possibilities are endless. That was a crazy search- But, oh so, fun. I adore the many, many version of the garlic knot block and all the beautiful layouts.
That whole trail is a wonderful example of why somedays I feel like I get nothing done!! Try it for yourself…type in Garlic Knots quilt and see where it takes you.
If you have any ideas on the name of the first quilt, or if you can help Michelle locate a pattern or kit to make the Civil War Tribute quilt, please leave a comment in the comment section. Your help is appreciated.
