A Little Rag Quilt
Sorry I ddin't post over the weekend, I've been suffering from the dreaded toothache.
I consoled myself by making a little rag quilt. I'd always wanted to make one of these so now I can score it off my to do list.
I started with a pile of these :
6.5" squares, sandwiched with layer of wadding (batting) and a backing square.
I sewed diagonal lines to anchor the layers together.
Most of the work is in cutting out the squares but once that is done is sews together quickly. I made this in a day then spent the evening snipping the seams. I just couldn't wait to wash it and get it in the tumble dryer.
Love how it turned out and I will give this to my Mum - perfect timing as it's beginning to get very cold here in Scotland. A girl can never have too many quilts can they?
Now, what can I work on next ? No doubt I'll find something!
Thanks for visiting. Til next time
