I found the past Fons & Porters show videos and all the other shows I will get to later.
When I found a pattern that looked interesting there were no quantities or measurements--worst yet there was no place to get them.
Couldnt this be a nice addition to the club more free patterns? More links to more stuff?
I looked in free patterns heading under Shiloh, Dusty Miller, Log Cabin variation, and Pineapple. There are no patterns that match. It just seemed to be so simple. I was so wrong.
I like to watch videos while I quilt, can't they be chained together so when one finishes another starts? Like on a DVD--View All.
I do like this website but it isn't easy to understand yet. (Like what is a tag?)
char, are you referring to the patterns here on QCA? i didn't see the patterns you mentioned, but i tried opening 5 patterns in the free patterns on our dashboard and they all opened with full instructions. you have to go down below the picture and click on the third set of green print that says attachments gini

and welcome char, love your duck. it does take a little while to figure out the navigation here, but there are already a lot of free patterns on it. the links to F&P and QNN could be a little easier, i agree. gini
The pattern was on the Fons & Porter video 400 Series--401. Those gals sure can talk but they didn't exactly give quantities or measurements. When I tried to get a back issue of the magazine the pattern was in--it wouldn't let me. Frankly, if I have to pay for it and I still want it I really want it. Thanks for replying! What are the post points for?
I just couldn't put a picture of ME up there!! Well, I walk like a duck soooooo--if it walks like a duck it fits!! The comment about MORE free patterns was kinda tongue in cheek humor. So far that's all I've seen on this site. SO FAR.
char, the newer shows i don't think we have access to. someone else on here may know more about that. i thought we could access the magazines from their site? i haven't been on F&P for a while. you can call the toll freee number at the bottom of this page on monday. they are really nice and helpful and will figure it out for you
we don't know what the points are for, yet. they are still working to improve the working of the site and are deluged with new members. i think they've been pretty busy. there are a lot of free patterns on your dashboard, the green square in the upper left. we have a bunch of groups you can join to get info on specific types of quilts or join a group and make a quilt along with other quilters and trouble shoot as you go. forums is a great place to ask questions, too. in no time you'll have a lot of answers. i hope you take the time to investigate everything QCA has to offer gini
Hi Char and welcome to QCA. It looks like gini hit the answers, so I will just say Hi.
Oh, the tags are a way of searching. You can click on the tag and it will bring up posts that are tagged with that particular word.
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Hi Char --- welcome to QCA
Hi Char...this is a great site and the ladies are really friendly and very helpful with questions about the site....it would be nice to change the videos on QNNTV...I don't really go on F&P as I am on here more..I hope you find your way around here and start yo enjoy it like I have for the past 3 years
Welcome, I am Char also, but as for the patterns, if you look under the pic there is a pdf link to open for entire pattern. Also, the videos, I had a hard time figuring out at first too, but I like to find a specific topic to watch, not so much random videos....for example, I wanted to see their version of log cabin compared to Elenor Burns... found I am much more happy with the Fons and Porter version. When I put in a topic I was able to find the specific video I was interested in.
Hope this helps.
I think I understand. She watched a F&P video and in the video, they showed a certain pattern. But they didn't elaborate on the pattern and it isn't available as a free download. So she's wondering where to find that pattern. I'm off to look at the video-I have a lot of older F&P magazines and maybe it's in one of them.
Oh and welcome-I thought at first that you were the Char that was already here! lol
Char, Almost all the tv videos do not give you cutting instructions...they want you to buy the pattern or book.
But she said she wasn't able to buy the back issue that is mentioned in the video. Or she would.
char is the is link for the f&p site, that shows the shiloh pattern...
Finally finished the video. It stinks having a slow connection! The issue is sept/oct 2004 which is a lot older than anything I have. Looks like buying that pattern is the only option unless someone else here has that issue to share. btw the link above didn't work for me but here's another that might work:
