Q is for QUILTS (knitted that is)

BUTTON QUILT

Today's letter is "Q" and so I've searched out some free patterns for you under Quilts.  What, you might say, is the difference between quilts and afghans, usually it's just terminology in knitting, however, I have found some knit quilts that look like actual quilted quilts. 

PATCHWORK BABY BLANKET
Check them out, first we have a patchwork baby blanket, which is a series of not too difficult squares, and as it is a baby blanket, not too many squares.  I would pick brighter colors in mine.   

The Windmill Quilt was chosen because it looked like it was done almost all in garter stitch, which may be boring but is easy and could be a nice "in front of TV" piece to make.

Now for another baby blanket (they're cute and they do get finished faster than adult sized quilts).

TEXTURED BABY BLANKET









The best thing about doing quilts in the summer is you only have to carry around a small piece at a time.  REMEMBER TO CLICK THE TITLES FOR THE FREE PATTERNS.

  3. I love the button quilt and hey, if I could learn to knit I would be able to make that oh so pretty "sitting in front of the TV" project also. I agree with Denine... very inspiring AND mood brightening!

    THANK YOU!

  4. Lovely quilts. I remember making one for my daughter's bed many years ago. I didn't mind the knitting, but hated stitching all the pieces together!

  5. Lovely blog. I am here from A-Z. I hate bitty knitting, the sewing up drives me mad so I tend to knit all in one piece afghans, a devil to tote around but wonderful way to meet people!
