Good morning quilters!  I may be one of many looking for this pattern "Point of no return" by Georgia Schmidt - 1993.

This pattern is shown in Bargello Quilts by Marge Edie but without instructions.  

Can someone tell me where to get the pattern.  I have searched on line to no avail.  

Thanks for any help you may give me.

Happy quilting.

At this point if you cannot find it I would take the picture and copy it, then take it to a copy shop and at least get it enlarged to make a pattern. It might take some time, but you might figure it out. If you can post a picture of it on here maybe we can help you figure  it out. I recall there is a computer program you can buy to make your own bargello quilt patterns. You might consider buying that and then put in the design, and then you will have the instructions.

I looked on the web too for you and saw that others had looked without success.

I think that mostly the quilts found in the galleries of quilt books, are those of the author or students, and unless the pattern is featured in the book itself, there isn't a pattern available.

However, looking closely at the picture one could probably design something very similar.

Is this it?

It is easy to recreate. I set up the block in EQ7.  The block is just a 4 sq x 4 sq layout made up of half square triangles on one half and a large half square triangle on the other.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Can you scan a picture of the pattern your asking about, this would help a lot.  We will all try and help you with this.

Augh. My scanner is broken and I am tired. So I can not scan in a picture of the 1993 Point of No Return Quilt.  However, if you look at the Infinity quilt of page 50 of Eileen Wrights book Twist-and-Turn Bargello quilts you will see that the two are very similar. Eileens version is more symmetric, but it will give you a good idea of how to reinterpret Point of No Return.

Here is a link to an image of Infinity bargello

If you like bargellos this is a great book

Hello Denise, I found an article in QuiltMag where Karl McDaniel was able to reproduce this quilt.  The link is http://www.quiltmag.com/blogs/red-white-diy-do-it-yourself/

Perhaps they would be able to help you get the pattern.  Otherwise if you could get a clearer picture, you could put into a program called Quilt Assistant (it's free) and make your pattern from that.

Hi,

Were you able to find the pattern for Point of no return, I am also looking for it as I have the book by Marge Edie and would love to try this bargello design.

I am new to this site so I hope I put this in the right format.
