Well… NO phone call yesterday…so I guess that means that I didn’t win one of those magnificent quilts from the Parksville’s quild raffle! Somewhere ‘out there’ are three very excited and thrilled winners!
I found it …BUT would you believe that the pattern is $66 for this small 57”X60” quilt! OUCH!! Too rich for this poor quilter’s quilting budget…darn! Oh well…this quilt was not meant to be…
BUT there are PLENTY of patterns out there that I can afford…like this new one from Thimble Blossoms!! I have always wanted to make a spools quilt…and just LOOK at this one! I love the way the colours on the spools look like thread AND look at how the spools are stacked…like they are going to come tumbling down at any minute!! Love this quilt!
You can find this pattern Here and for only $7.95! Now THAT I can afford!
OR you can go to Lecien’s Free Pattern site and pick up these two wonderful patterns for absolutely NOTHING!! YUP, you heard me…nada…
A Lynette Anderson Designs ‘Christmas Wishes’ for FREE!! Unheard of!
This is another FREE pattern designed by Joe Woods (Piece by Piece Quilts). I love house quilts!
The colours in this quilt don’t crank my engine but I LOVE the pattern…use your imaginations…don’t you SEE the potential?! Look at the wee houses on the corners and the picket fence all around! Yes, this could be a stunner!!
Have you gone to Lecien Free Pattern site…there are LOTS of wonderful pattern here! Com’on get off that couch and GO!!
So you see, if you’re like me and can’t/won’t pay the BIG bucks for a pattern there are tons of options for us!! Thanks Lucien, and Henry Glass and Fat Quarter Shop and Connecting Threads …and all the generous blogging designers who are constantly handing out your designs for FREE!! We appreciate YOU…we REALLY do!! A HUGE THANK YOU ALL!!
