RE: Modern Baby Quilt
We are so sorry, Chinellie, but that issue is no longer available. If you're looking for the pattern for the pink Modern Baby quilt, you can buy it here:

I cannot find the magazine Quilters How to Workshop the you mention above. Where is the magazine available?
"free" pattern for The Modern Baby
Hi; I don't think that you should post this on the free pattern site.. It is not free. you have to buy it for $6. I think that this is a bit unscrupulous, it is the old bait and switch. I saw the pattern and I was all excited to get this pattern, only to find out it is not free. only the other blue pattern is free.. the one I don't want. how dissappointing that you would trick people like this.
RE: modern baby quilt
The pink version of The Modern Baby is patterned in the March 2010 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. The Blue is for Boys version is available free online here:

Dear Readers, The pink and blue versions are not the same pattern. Pink is available in the magazine; the blue is available as a web bonus. If you have additional questions, please email me at:
where's the free pink pattern
unable to find the free girl's pattern. the blue is not the same pattern no matter what they call it.
It's not free if I have to buy a $6 magazine. The blue version is even more boring that a Yellow Brick Road, my standard for blah quilts.
Blue version not the same pattern
What is the measurement of the triangle pieces shown in the pink version. The blue version appears to be strips only.
