Quilt With Us

I am trying to find this pattern and have contacted quilt stores,quilt guild in Kentucky , venders, etc. Someone replied on a blog that they thought it was called Tennessee Waltz but it is my understanding that the Tennessee Waltz pattern is entirely different. I first saw it as a finished quilt for sale in Country Living Magazine and emailed the magazine asking if it was indead a pattern or just designed for their quilt but didn't get an answer. Can anyone help. I am still learning my way around this site. am loving it but am a little confused. Janet B

Janet, Haven't heard of this pattern. Try contacting the quilt museum in Paducah, KY. They might be able to help you.
Thank you for the information. I'll try that.
Just an update on the Kentucky Waltz. I found a picture of it on the computer. Went under thetwocrows it was under Quilts by Nina. Couldn't get a pattern but at least I now have a picture and know there is one. I can send the picture to Peducah and The quilt museum in Vermont. Thanks for your help.
I have made the Tennessee waltz quilt,have never seen the Kentucky Waltz..Hummmmmmmm
Thank you so very much for the picure of the Tennessee Waltz, it is beautiful but is not the design I saw in Country Living. I am writing to National Quilt Museum in Paducah and New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Mass. (because I couldn't get an email through) to see if they know anything. Jan
Just an update. I found a picture of the Kentucky Waltz on the computer. under thetwocrows, Quilts by Nina. It just shows a picture of the finished quilt but at least I know now that I am not crazy and the pattern does exist.I can send a copy of the picture to Peducah and the Vermont Quilting Museum where they have library volunteers who will look up patterns, etc. I hope I am at the end of my quest.

I am also looking for the Kentucky Waltz quilt pattern, They were selling them on QVC the other day and were absolutely beautiful and would love to make one. If you find somewhere that has the pattern would you please let me know. Judy
I would be very happy to let you know "when" I find the pattern. I think QVC was selling them for Country Living Magazine but not sure . That is where I first saw the pattern and began my quest. I found my way into a computer blog when I was first trying and there were so many women looking for this pattern. No one knew anything about it and most thought The Tenessee Waltz was is (not so). Then something not nice came up on my computer so I got out of there quick. I love Connecting Threads and this blog and it's safe!!! I still have a long way to go to learn how to use it better but it is coming. I have made one special friend, we have so much in common that it is fun to chat with her. Hope you re enjoying some quilting on these cold, cold days. Jan
I contacted bothNational Quilt Museum in Paducah and New England Quilt Museum both were very helpful and prompt in answering my inquiry. Both agreed that there is not a pattern called Kentucky Waltz. Paducah said sometimes asian manufacturers take one or two quilt patterns from their collection and turn it into a quilt to sell in this country. They have gone so far as to threaten legal action if they don't stop doing this. Both agreed that the center is a Lone Star pattern With a Chinese Fan variation as setting and corner blocks or a fan that is one quarter of a mariners compass block for part of the background. At any rate, there are books with these patterns and from that I can draft my own "Kentucky Waltz" pattern. So, now I have a project!!!!!
Hope you have fun with this. Janet Bouchey
I looked at the quilts on QVC, and I have seen a photo of that pattern on the Quilts Your Way message board, just different colors and called Compass Star. Here is a link to the photo. I contacted the lady that posted it about the pattern, and will let you know what she replies.
I got a response from the lady that made the compass star quilt:

"I got the Compass Star pattern from Keepsake quilting several years ago. It was by Anne Donaghy."

Maybe that will help you find the pattern.
That quilt is sold by country living. I don't think that is a name of an actual quilt block.
