The Twin Christmas Rag Quilts are done!

The Twin Christmas Rag Quilts are done! 

This weekend was absolutely lovely! Sunny and 70 degrees both days and I was able to finish some of the yard work before old man winter shows up. After the sun went down last night I sat down at the sewing machine again and stitched until my eyes started going cross-eyed. LOL. Back up this morning to finish this lovely set and spent the day washing/drying them. 



This is the first one.

This is the second one folded on the chair.



I really love the way they turned out!


Custom orders can be placed at my Etsy shop. Christmas is right around the corner!

November Project #1

Project # 1 is for 2 Twin size Rag Quilts and 2 matching pillow shams in Red and Green Christmas fabrics. It has taken me a couple of weeks to gather the fabrics, pre-fringe the squares and sew the sandwiches.  



 Last night I sewed the 2 pillow shams up. I will put the backing on them after I get the 2 quilts done.
 Here is the layout for the first quilt.
 So far what I have finished today. I like hanging the strips on my clothesline in the basement.
Stay tuned for more on this project!

October Projects


In October I completed 2 lap size rag quilts in Homespun.

This was a custom order super long table runner with mostly vintage fabrics and the batting showing in the seams. Loved it!




September Projects

This little Alligator quilt was made for a co-worker who had a baby boy recently. My husband drew the alligator and I did the rest!


This was a King size Rag Quilt in my favorite fabrics- homespun. This beauty went to a customer in Tennessee.

Burp Cloths

Well here are those burp cloths I finished a while ago. lol

These are all for sale on Etsy.
