Anyway, as seems to be my December tradition, I made my third quilt this December. Of course, I have to show you the journey.
Yes, it's a rag quilt. They are easy and relatively quick. Plus, I had tons of old jeans to use up. Here's the intial laying out of the patterns. Bu the way, you can see my foot in that pic- you can see my lovely new Alpaca slippers. They were a pricey Christmas present to myself, but I have a new found fondness for Alpaca fibre and I had a moment of weakness at a Christmas Craft Sale. So comfy!
I made it in 9 patch blocks, each with one pattern and jeans. Then, I stitched the blocks into 5 blocks by 5 blocks. I had 4 cozy flannels, yes again in pink. This one is for my couch and the size ended up smaller than the last two, but perfect for a TV watching blanket.
The dogs overseeing the process. Maggie was still here then. :)
Hmmm, comfy! Sophie as always HAS to lie on the quilt, mid process.
Anyway, the finished product, all washed and ready to go. It frayed up lovely and I am very pleased with the results!
I won't be waiting another year to make another quilt, I can tell you that. There's going to be some heavy duty sewing in my near future. :)
