    I saw this free pattern of the month at Walmart and it is actually pretty cute (and looks easy enough)
    its very bright and springy and under $30. I thought I would give it a try. :-D
    Material seems pretty good - cant see thru it and it is actually pretty thick (for wamart)
    it says finished size is 92X92

    I didnt like the border material they had so I didnt get it.

    I saw that too! It is adorable. May just have to go and get me another "to do" project.

    Please show pics when you get done!

    Some of the fabric in Walmart is also available in LQS and online for more $$$.

    It is a cute quilt. Haven't seen that one yet in my local Walmart.

    The little rosebuds is my all time favorite print. I think my girls had dresses in every available color - then they got to sleep in flannel nightgowns in the same print. Surprisingly, they still like it. I see a WalMart trip in my future. Your quilt will look like spring.

    Interesting. I just did the same thing but a different pattern. The pattern is free and then the yardage was $2.79 David Textiles. I came to about $35. This one is very pretty too. I did find the quilts finnished sizes are kind of small for a twin bed and there is not alternaitve size on the pattern. Still very smart marketing. Let us know how yours turns out. I have worked with David Textiles so I am pretty confident it will work out OK. What brand was yours?

    You are so lucky that your Walmart still sells fabric on the bolt!! All the Walmarts near me now only have precut yardage and not very nice either. I like Walmart fabric and grieved when they stopped providing it!!

    My local Walmart started selling the pre-cut fabric and the quality is terrible. But then some of the bolt fabric they sell is pretty good. The staff said they are getting rid of the bolts in favor of all pre-cut. I think we should all email Walmart and tell to stock GOOD quality fabric. Sheila, IL

    I picked up that pattern also but didn't get the fabric yet not sure when I will do it. Even if the fabric in the pattern is gone you can always use another that you like instead of what the have in pattern and you already know how much to get in each fabric.
