My FREE Quilt!


Doing it from memory was hard....I should have taken a picture or 
better yet, looked it up on line like I did for this post.
Thats what happens when you have to have it NOW!!
LOL


Yep That how I see it!
Free!!
I went to a Quilt Shop and they had the cutest quilt kit....
but not pattern...
the kit was 90 something dollars but they were out of the patterns.
so I could buy the kit and sooner or later pick up the pattern...
or get on line and order it and maybe in a week or so get the pattern in the mail....
well by then I would be on to bigger and better projects and this quilt would end up in the quilt kit collection. I wanted it now!!
I was doing my tree and it would be so cute hanging next to the tree.
So I didn't buy the kit for this Meme pattern:


I went home and made my own!!
The way I see it is ...
I saved $9 dollars for the pattern, they didn't have anyway.
And 90 something for the kit.
I used what I had in my stash and so 
a FREE quilt!



I think mine is close to Meme's....
kind of...


We had a party so I had to hang it before I got it quilted...
no one even noticed...
I am the only quilter in my family....
so they don't even notice unless I tell them
so shhhhh


See my FREE quilt goes with the tree.


I might bind it with the same red I used for the inside border.
I am also going to add a few yoyo's as the flower centers and more 
buttons here and there.


The little table was mine when I was a little girl and 
now my Grand kids sit at it and color and eat.
I love it!

Your quilt is absolute adorable with all the snowmen and snow women. Thanks for sharing and I think I must make a snowmen quilt too.
We have lot of snow now, not so common in my part of Sweden

I always think I'm going to remember a quilt well enough to make a similar one but when push comes to shove I can't remember what I need to remember. I am in awe of your ability to do that! It looks great - such cute faces. :) blessings, marlene

Oh...I just love your snowman quilt! You did an incedible job on it and I'm amazed that you didn't have a pattern! It looks just adorable snugged up next to your Christmas tree.
Way to go!

That is absolutely darling!! I think yours is much cuter and it looks great with your tree. You're so good to remember the blocks and vision what you want to make. Good eye!! I would have to take a picture, my memory would not be able to make that.

You are awesome!!! Miss seeing you and love you. Hugs!

May Britt said...

Yours are much more cuter :)
