Trip X Two Pattern

I was able to find the pattern on the hearthside quiters nook site but not the other. Thanks for the info - it looks like it would be a fun pattern for a class too. Joleen in MN

    Here's the weird story about my experience with this pattern.
    I took this class 2 times...yes 2!
    I have made 4 quilts from it & then drafted out a pattern to make it using fat quarters in a small version. Then about ten years went by & I could not remember how to make this darn thing! It was just driving me crazy after a while partly because I would see it at quilt shows or I would need baby quilts & think I'd like to make it again.
    One day I decided to google it & I found the pattern & the maker but then I couldn't find them on the computer. I did a bunch of searching by using one of the gals I took the class from, ended up with a quilt shop number that turned out to be about 30 miles from me & then found out that they were the ones that produced the pattern....sigh! So if anyone wants the pattern I can track down there phone number & you can call & order it directly like I did. The shop is Paradise quilts in Sandy OR. So ask me if I have used the pattern yet? NO, but at least I have it!
    I'll try to post a picture of it tomorrow.
    Anyway, originally there was no pattern for this quilt. I was told that the rights to the class belonged to a particular teacher & that she would stop the class from being held if she knew about it. I think enough time finally went by & she didn't care anymore & someone decided to market the pattern. Jill
    But I think this is a different quilt than Milli is making.
    Have I confused everyone enough?

    definately talking about 2 different quilts, oh my...I love Milli's though!
