Luke's Dinosaur Quilt

T
                             Here is my first large quilt project, finished earlier this year.
 I found this wonderful pattern in the January/February issue of Fons&Porter Quilting Magazine.  http://www.fonsandporter.com/index.html the panel was designed by Michele Wojcinski for Avlyn Fabrics.

Luke is as high as he can be displaying his finished quilt. I was slow getting started on this project. I searched everywhere for this dinosaur panel in the middle but I finally found it bugfabric.com. I wasn't able to find the coordinating Fossil prints so I went to a favorite local quilt shop, http://www.aheartlikeyours.com/ and fell in love with these batik prints.  As I got started my simple lap sized quilt grew until it fit his double bed. I am linking up with Sew Many ways today for So Darn Crafty linky party...check out all the great ideas!

  3. Do you by any chance know what year Fons and Porter had this pattern? Was it January/February of 2010? I have the middle dinosaur panel to make a quilt for my son, and a pattern would make it so much easier! I'm a bit new to this quilting thing, so I take any help I can get. ;-). Any suggestions as to where I might find this pattern would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much! Feel free to e-mail me: bugheather(at)netzero(dot)net. Oh, and your quilt looks GREAT!
