FRIENDSHIP STARS COME OUT AT CHRISTMAS!


You better not cry, you better not pout, 2008 freebie is finally out!

Here is my free CHRISTMAS SPARKLER design for this year! Last year I was blown away with the wonderful response to the pattern I designed for you. I hope you will be as excited about this one! It is easy to make, colorful and fun! My quilt has the colors in it that I like, and I would love to see what colors and fabrics you choose for yours. Last year I posted the quilts that YOU made on my website. I would love to do the same this year, so start digging through your scraps, or take the supply list along with you to the store. The fabric amounts are generous, but were difficult to break down into smaller units. I bet you have everything you need in your sewing room!

Fabric needed: Blue print or tone on tone -1/2 yard; Green- 1 FQ; Red print- 1 FQ; Red tone on tone- 1 FQ; Gold for stars- 1 FQ; Binding- 1 FQ; Backing- 3/4 yard


Just picture this 23 inch square quilt on a table, or tucked in a basket for decorating! Easily reduce the size to just nine blocks, or make it into a runner.


If you wish, you can copy the little Friendship Star block on my sidebar to post on your blog with a link to my web site: www.patchalotpatterns.com

Have fun, and thank you for your FRIENDSHIP!

Thanks Marcie for the free pattern. I'd like to make this one right now, but don't know if I'll have time! Too many irons in the fire right now. Maybe after things settle down a bit. But, I did add the pic and link to my sidebar. Hope you get some traffic to your site!

Hey, what a wonderful Christmas present, I am actually picking out fabric to do it, won't get done til I return from market but do it I will. It might not look like yours when I finish since my fabric choices are always a bit brighter, but we will see. Thanks
