So while I am also not a quilter (despite my grandmother's best efforts) I so love this quilt that it is inspiring me to try! 

My husband and I have decided on Jack and Sally for our costumes for next year (he's a stilt walker) so I'll be hunting down Jack and Sally fabric anyway and I can always use another quilt...  very awesome idea!

photograph, sew, photograph, sew, school, work, sew, photograph, sew, camp, sew... yay adhd!

OK, I found them in a fit of cleaning this fall, but I'm teaching 17 credits (it's like a 60-hour work week, in theory.....I think it's more in actuality) with 10 hours of driving on top this semester, so I'm totally wiped out, and if I weren't home for a sick day today probably wouldn't have gotten these scanned.  That said, here are the rough pattern scans.  They aren't pretty, but they're a place to start for anyone who really wants to attempt this quilt.  Someday when I have a life I'll trace them over and post better ones.  I'll paste over the text that I wrote below them in my gallery.

The rough sketch of the Sally pattern. Grid squares should be one inch in size and scanned image should be the same size as a standard piece of letter-sized paper. Blew up 5 times to make the quilt.

Some of the squares need further reduction into smaller pieces--the two zig-zaggy pieces that mimic Sally's torn sleeves and arms need to be cut into multiple pieces and sewn together in strips for your own sanity. Also, the pattern is supposed to repeat on a diagonal, but it's not perfect, so you might be better off to reproduce the whole thing rather than just tracing half the pieces. It will probably make things easier in the long run.

The basics of the Jack pattern. You're better off cutting the bat wings into multiple strips (three) and the cutting the breast down the middle.

Grid squares should be one inch in size and scanned image should be the same size as a standard piece of letter-sized paper. Blew up 5 times to make the quilt.

Odd little numbers have to do with matching pieces and patterns. Disregard as you see fit.

**One additional note:  the lines on this sketch aren't 100% accurate.  In the finished quilt, the white stripes are one inch wide finished, and the black stripes are four inches wide finished.  (One square grid on the pattern is five inches on the quilt.)  The edges are supposed to line up with the corners.  There's supposed to be eight of those little triangles at the bottom, one in each square.  You'll probably have to regrid the bottom portions, but the bat and breast of the jacket are fine.

When I flipped my pattern over, I found this sketch on the back.  It corrects the basic pattern of the zig zag and how it should line up:


If the details don't show through well enough for you to see things, I've got higher quality scans that I can send you through e-mail.  What you'll need to do is PM me and send me an e-mail address that will handle 3-6 MB scans.  I've got a greyscale Sally scan that shows the patterns that I sketched in much better.

Remember that the original baby quilt isn't that large, 40X55 inches, so you'll need to continue to blow up accordingly for grown-up-sized quilts.

absolutely beautiful! thank you very much for posting your patterns, maybe eventually I'll be able to quilt more than just rectangular pieces in order to make a version of it!

I don't quilt and normally aren't a big fan of quilts (my MIL is way country with her quilts), but I had to post and say that this is the coolest set ever. Great work!
