    Margie's Cheater Quilt

    I have had so much fun with an old cheater quilt we found in my sister's closet. I quilted a different pattern in the middle of each flower and outlined and echoed the rest. I love how it turned out and am kinda sad that I'll have to give it back to my sister!

    Stunning. Maybe you could share it! It is superb. You would never know it was a cheater cloth, not that that matters. It is fabulous.

    Shhh don't tell, but I like the back better than the front! This turned out wonderful and you made a cheater panel a wonderful work of art.

    why would you place such a Negative term on such a beautiful quilt? i see nothing 'cheating' about it---it always saddens me when people use such a horrible term...I've made many beautiful wonderful quilts using panals and designer fabrics---they always took thought, work, materials, time....there was certainly nothing 'cheating' about it...i so wish that word would go away!
    the quilt is beautiful! not a thing of negativity---cheating---at all

    Linda, that has to be one of the prettiest cheater fabrics I have ever seen. And now that it is quilted, I would not even consider it a cheater fabric, more like a canvas for you to create on. Very nice.

    Thanks for you comment! I actually think it's kinda funny. People who don't quilt don't know what it means and i have to explain to them that it's pre-printed fabric. I've been getting all kinds of accolades about my applique abilities on my facebook page and I want you quilters to know right up front it's pre-printed!!!

    Thanks! I would have never guessed it would turn out this nice. This is one case where the quilting made the quilt. It's a very old and inexpensive fabric but it's very hard to tell even in person that it's a cheater quilt!

    It's not a "cheater", it's a BEAUTIFUL "wholecloth"!

    that is the best looking cheater cloth I've ever seen. Love your quilting on it. I think she should share it with you.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Holy cow! That is stunning. Maybe you could tell her it got 'lost' someplace in the house. (That would be very believable at my house, LOL
