My Day For The Fabulous Freebies Blog Hop

That Joan from MooseStash Quilting has the best sense of humor and usually has me laughing
 as I read through her blog posts. She's such an amazing quilter and inspires me with her
creations. The Fabulous Freebies blog hop is her doing and I'm so happy to be a part of it.
Thanks, Joan, for the motivation to sew something using a free pattern!

One of my favorite go-to place for free patterns and tutorials is the 
Missouri Star Quilt Company's videos with that cute teacher, Jenny.
She makes everything look so easy!

This is the video I used for my Fabulous Freebie project:


I made the Cheerio Quilt with a few less blocks than what was in this video. 
Jenny's quilt has 42 blocks...mine has 20, making it more like a child's quilt.
Jenny's quilt has a 3" border around it...mine has 1" and 3" borders. 
Her quilt and my quilt used 8" and 4" size circles. This pattern is very versatile!




The fabrics are Nest by Moda Boutique

I love your quilt Carol! Cherrio what a fun name too.I have 8-10-12 inch circle templates, so I could change the size and make this quilt too. This would be great for some of those fabrics that you want to see more of like a novelty print.

Your quilt is so pretty!!! I haven't seen that MSQC video/pattern yet. Jenny is so fun to watch and so fun to listen to in person. I had the amazing opportunity to spend an hour in her presence and she just beamed and bubbled through her talk!! And when I finally had the chance to meet and greet her, I felt like a bubbling idiot, as I went blank!! To be in the presence of such greatness was overwhelming!

Carol,
This a "new to me" pattern from Jenny. Doesn't she just make you feel like she's your best friend? I want to make almost every quilt that she has tutorialed just because of her enthuasism for it. She breaks everything to simple. I adore your quilt and it CHEERfulness. Thanks for intro-ing me to another new temptation.

Your quilt is adorable. This freebie pattern (from MSQC) is another winner. It's one of those you can make most any size and it works perfectly.
