It's FINISHED - Whew!

Quilter's Tip:  Do not wear black corduroy pants when clipping the seam allowances of a flannel rag quilt.

The rag quilt is done, finally. It took a lot longer to clip than I thought it would, but that's OK. My client is very happy with the quilt, always a big relief at the end of a piece of custom work. So here it is:

I'm really happy with the way it turned out. This is the first rag quilt I've made, so it's something I've added to my skills.

My daughter is here visiting for a while. During her time here, we'll be making a memory rag quilt for her - sadly, her fiance died not long ago and she asked if I would help her make a quilt from his jeans. Some may think that's a little morbid, but I don't. I think it'll be something she'll cherish forever. Before we do that, though, I need to teach her quilting basics because she has no experience. So we'll be making a simple wall-hanging for her home using her favourite colour - purple!!

Check in tomorrow for a few Etsy shops I'll be featuring, and some pics of fabrics projects-in-progress.

Cheery quilting!

  1. Love the finished quilt! I like how you had a large focal piece (giraffe) on your top. Cute! Cute! Also posted on your Etsy forum post "Promotions - New blog" http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6705660&page=2
