I'm looking for two specific patterns, and I'm having difficulty finding what I need in google.
One is for the University of Michigan "M" logo. I want to make my brother a lap throw. I know it can't be that difficult, all squares or half square triangles, but I want to get the font exact. I could probably figure it out myself, but I thought for sure there would be a pattern out there. Haven't been able to find it.
The other, I have seen in a book, but I've read about a gazillion quilt books from the library, and I cannot for the life of me find it again. It's a rooster block that's made with pretty much squares and triangles, some 1/4 square size. I think it may have been a demonstration block for making a pot-holder, which is what I want it for as a gift for someone who collects. All I have been able to find online are applique's or rooster-print fabric when I do keyword searches.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it!!
Is this the one you were looking for? http://www.sandybonsib.com/pattern_archive_Jan02.htm
I've been collecting sites with various chicken and rooster patterns since I want to make a quilt for my sister who collects them. This one is cute and seems pretty easy. Hope this helps.
No, the one I was looking for wasn't stylized at all. It looked more like a real rooster. I'm thinking it may have been made up of mini-triangles and squares in order to look as natural as it did. I tried to design one myself using graph paper, but I can't quite get there. I think I just need to trace an applique'd one that looks pretty realistic, enlarge it and digitize it to come up with the pieces.
Thanks for checking it out for me, though!
You might try some of the fillet crochet books out by Dover or look for cross stitch patterns. Enlarged, easily interpreted into a patchwork.
Hope these suggestions help.
