Does anyone know where I can get the pattern for a Topsy Turvy nine patch quilt?  I love the look and have googled etc, and so far all I can find is that it was in an old magazine but which one and can I get a copy??

any ideas?  

here is a link to the picture it is about half way down the page

thanks 

Sandy

It wouldn't be too difficult to do.  I'll use 2 inch dimensions. 

Make a simple 9 patch.  6 inches finished. 

on 2 sides add 2 1/2 inch strips (2 inch finished) You now have an 8 inch finished block.

make two rectangles split diagonally, each finished at 4 x 8 inches. 

to one of these add 4 inch finished half triangle square to the end.

Add these to the sides of the 8 inch block.  You should end up with what will be a 12 inch finished block. 

Arrange the blocks to get various patterns.

At least that is how it would look in my head.  But it would not be unusual for my head to leave  out a couple steps or get the dimensions wrong.

Try contacting Judy at this email address and see if she can tell you where to get the pattern.   She has several nine patch pattern books for sale thru Amazon at a good price but I don't know which one may have the pattern.

I really like that quilt - so before I even read Patti's post I played in EQ. After I played - I realized that Patti and I came up with the same proportions. Any way ... here is a quick screen shot with some color and  the grid. Did a quick quilt with this block and it appears to have the correct proportions.

Sandy - Can not wait to see yours when you are done.Tthere are SO many items on my Things to do List - who know when it will get done. That being said - since I already have it in EQ, if you need yardage estimates - please let me know.

I don't know about Sandy but I sure would like those yardage estimates.  I drew out the block and border on graph paper.  Thought it would look good in 30"s fabric.  So if you're willing to share I sure would like to  know what EQ is telling you.

Thanks for all your help, Betty.

OK all - not a problem. I drew it up as a 12" block - but can scale it to any size. 

For a 30 Block Quilt (5X6) with 12" blocks, the center would be 60 X 72 and the yardage just for the center is 

  • 2 3/8 yd for background, 
  • 1 3/8 yd for the green
  • 3/4 yd for the dark fabric in the 9 patch
  • 5/8 yd for the light fabric in the 9 patch

Thanks, Betty.  Wrote everything down on my graph paper.  Just another quilt to add to the list......someday when I'm retired.
