My friend Pam McRae shared her version of this quilt with me right before Christmas (the picture of the quilt in vintage 30's reproduction prints). Her version hooked me!
I've had these two photos of Pam's quilt on my refrigerator ever since, and I have been looking for the magazine that published the Piece 'O Cake pattern!
Pam began the quilt at her Needle Chaser's Quilt Guild retreat a few years back, but she only finished the appliqué portion, quilting and binding right before Christmas. Then she gave the quilt as a Christmas present!
(Note to self: Get on Pam's Christmas gift-giving list!)
Here are some photos of Pam's Quilt Guild Retreat.
Pam had to finish her quilt without the pattern because she had misplaced the magazine with pattern! She could not even remember the month and year, but she did know it was American Patchwork & Quilting.
I started searching auctions for old quilt magazines, and after about five months, I found the right magazine. August, 2003, Issue # 63, for those of you who also want to acquire this pattern.
Pam, your colors are captivating. I don't want to "copy" you, so you may have to help me plan some colors that include that Robin's Egg Blue and the Happy Yellow!
I've never made a Lone Star quilt, and this one adds enough appliqué fun to make it tantalizing.
Pam, I just HAVE to share Kirby's photo of the cabin at Tishomingo State Park in northeast Mississippi. This is such a dreamy photo!
Gordon and I want to visit there now! It is amazing how much of one's own state awaits discovery!
