The Cheerful Cheater

I don't tend to think of myself as a quilting snob (any other variety snob, and I'm all in), however, I readily admit to having somewhat of an aversion to what my mom calls 'cheater quilts'.  I'm fairly certain she's not referring to panels (of which she lays claim to quite a few) but to those pre-quilted panels one simply finishes off with binding.

I know no shame.

Today, I proudly proclaim myself a cheater with my head held high and a certain je ne se what jauntiness to my airs (think of those bar-hopping twentysomethings from the Captain Morgan commercials...yeah, like them).  In a pinch, these pre-quilted babies are the bomb, y'all!  With due dates right around the corner, I ran out of time...okay, I procrastinated shamelessly.  Satisfied?

I didn't get pictures of the first one (trains), but here's the girly one...

Maybe next time, I'll have it all together, but it was lots of fun to say Why, yes, I made it today!

Happy cheating quilting, y'all!


  1. at least you got it to them on time

  2. Some of them ARE that one you did...I've seen some ugly ones though..!whew weee!

  3. I agree that some are cute. I still wish I had bought the Raggedy Ann one I had in my cart 10 or 15 yrs ago when Hell-mart carried it.

    You done good!

    p.s. I had to download google chrome to be able to comment on blogs again! But I am back. Beware!
