First Friday Freebie #36

December, the merriest month of the year is here and my gift to you all this Holiday season is my last First Friday Freebie for 2013.

Worked in the traditional redwork style, Bells & Bows will hopefully become one of your Christmas decorating favorites.




The message says it all, doesn't it? 




A closer look at the cornerstones.



And to make things easier for you, Darlene at A Needle Pulling Thread, our newest LQS (Local Quilt Shop), has assembled an all inclusive kit for Bells & Bows.

The kit includes everything you will need to make this project...a copy of the printed PDF pattern, all the fabric for the top and borders as well as the backing and binding.  Also included is the batting, floss and red Pigma pen used to transfer the design to the fabric.  



The cost for the kit is $25 plus postage.  If you'd like to purchase one, please contact Darlene directly by email at dadeon@eastlink.ca and she will be in touch with you to make the arrangements to complete the transaction.

To download the PDF file which includes the photos, line drawing and instructions, please click HERE.

And to those of you who might not find your way back here before Christmas, Mr. Painted Quilt, Ollie, Frankie and I would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New year.


Happy stitching!
