Rag Quilt

This is a first for me.  It was very easy to make and turned out quite rustic looking.

The back is the same so it can be used as a normal quilt too. I just took two squares of the same  fabric, sandwiched batting in between and sewed a cross on them to hold the batting in place. Then sewed each square together with a half inch seam.  Once it was all pieced I clipped the seams and washed the quilt. I then called a washing machine repair man as the frayed cotton blocked the pump! Next it was wrung out by hand cos of said washing machine malfunction and eventually dried in the tumble dryer where it went all fluffy on the clipped edges. The fabric is cotton home spun and I got it on sale cos it is normally expensive.  Flannel can be used to or normal cotton if you are patient waiting for it to fray as it takes  few more washes to get the "look".

Dresden Plate Quilt

I made this one with left over Red Rooster Neutral Territory and some that blended with it.

I spent much of today making Flying Geese blocks for cushions with left over fabric.  My fingers are taking an hammering tho so I am having the night off.

Cushion Covers

One for the front room.  Another similar is wip.

Another for the front room

So that's been my busy work for the last few weeks. I just have one more quilt to make for the front room to cover a chair we have in there and it's done. I have nearly finished a wall hanging for our bedroom and am starting one for the front room at some point soon. WIP is some cushion covers, a quilt for S and S, a quilt for Katie, a quilt for D and a throw for K bedroom to put over a chest she has in there. It's been awful weather so I will keep going until it gets hot- if it ever does.

Hexagonal Quilt

I made this one as a sofa throw.  It is folded in 4 on the photos as it was too big to photograph in a oner.  I quilted a border on the back.
