Update on the quilt pattern thing

Hi! Thanks so much to everyone who has offered to visit their local quilt shop (or send a friend to do so) and get a Row by Row pattern for me. I really appreciate it, and a little something is forthcoming to show that appreciation. :)

I looked through the Facebook pages associated with the hundreds of stores participating in this event, and I found a few that I really must have. Some of them for tentacle reasons, some because they're just gorgeous, some because I want them on the wall of my office. I'm sure I won't actually get them all, but if anyone lives in or near these places or will be passing through before September 8, would you be willing to pick up a free pattern for me?

Phoenix, AZ
Orange, CA
Denver, CO (specifically, Littleton and Wheat Ridge)
Loveland, CO
Sarasota, FL
Decatur, GA ~~
Hays, KS
Leavenworth, KS
Louisville, KY
Gaithersburg, MD
Weymouth, MA
St. Louis, MO (plus Frontenac)
Hastings, NE
Forked River, NJ ~~
Albuquerque, NM
Brooklyn, NY
Toledo, OH
Nash, OK
Bend, OR
Nyssa, OR
Portland, OR
Pittsburgh, PA ~~
Pendleton, SC
San Antonio, TX ~~
Tyler, TX ~~
Wichita Falls, TX
Seattle, WA ~~

Edmonton, AB
North Vancouver, BC
Renfrew, ON ~~
Saskatoon, SK

Bonus: If I get one of the tentacle patterns (marked with ~~), I'll make it as a donation for the Wincon auction. (If not in time for this year, then next year.)

Well, tmn1966 and I added a couple of shops to our roadtrip route, I hope we find them. I can't wait to see what you'll do with all these patterns;)

I'm in Portland; how can I help? :D

Thanks for offering! There's two shops in Portland: Cool Cottons at 2417 SE Hawthorne Blvd, near Ladd's Addition, and one way out near Tigard despite its Portland address: A Common Thread at 15495 SW Sequoia Pkwy #140. The theme for the patterns is "H2O," so the first shop has a graph of Portland's yearly rainfall, and the second one is an image of the Fremont Bridge.

If you can get to either one of these stores, you would ask for the free Row by Row pattern. Then if you could scan it or take a picture and e-mail it to me, that would be awesome. I can order the patterns after the contest ends in November, so no worries if you can't get to them. I appreciate the help, though!

My aunt has said she will pick up the Renfrew one (shes also a quilter and participating) She offered to pick up the fabric too but I said you likely only wanted/needed the pattern. If you need the fabric I can let her know....I'm not sure how specific the fabrics are???

Although I still have not gone up the KW yet.... ;P *hides*

That would be lovely! You can tell your aunt that just the pattern is fine. And don't worry...I've gotten so many patterns already from wonderful fangirls that I'm quite happy.

Not that I want you to pick up any more projects that will detract from your time writing the last installment on the Winchester Identity series... but I found this image on a Facebook friend's post and imediately thought of you. The only source info she had was from another friend, who in turn cited marijkeodc via flickr.

Now - go back to writing! ;D
