My sister has made several rag quilts.  My husband said a few times, why don’t you make quilts like this.

On my last trip to Shipshewanna, I bought this bundle to make a Rag Quilt for my hubby.

 It doesn’t look like much, but it is very soft and thick flannel.  Yesterday I went to the laundromat to wash and dry the quilt.  With all that string and fuzz, I didn’t want to clog my washer and fill my dryer vent with lint.  

So after $9.00 I have a clean quilt.  Who forgot to tell me that there would be so much lint/threads stuck to the fabric after the wash and dry.  Today I need to pick the fuzz off the quilt.  Then I can put it in a gift bag for Hubby for Christmas.

Wishing each of you a Very Merry, Healthy, Joyous day.  MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

My November OMG Quilt is done.

I started Quilt #27 with some leftovers from Quilt #14 Started and Finished 

I rescued about 100 HST leftover from changed plans on #14.  And put them together for my November OMG.  Of course I had to more than another 100 HSTs and put them together.

The fabric came from a FQ Bundle, Canyon by Kate Spain.  This was the first FQ Bundle I had every bought.  It was so beautiful, it hurt to untie the bundle.

This is my finished Quilt #27.

This was the first time using a wide backing and it was nice.  Very easy.  I like using it, but also like piecing my backs to give it extra eye candy.

This was my last quilt in progress, so I am off today to do some cutting.  After I do Black Friday online fabric browsing and linking up to these great groups:

Two down One to go.

I had three quilts all inprogress, which makes me crazy.  I try to have one at a time in progress.

I finished another this weekend.   This is Quilt #26.  It is Jelly Lanterns by Quilt Theory 

I used a second half of a Jelly Roll, Pixie Strips, Basically Patrick by  http://rjrfabrics.com/

Then I added a few of the remaining jelly roll pieces for the back.

And I love my stirped binding.  It looked pretty good here.  I am also improving on my machine binding.  More improvement needed, but I’m getting there.

Now it’s onto the wash for this baby.  Then onto the last of the three quilts I had going at the same time.  This one is ready for the machine quilting.

I broke my own rule of having only one quilt going at a time.  I had three tops made just waiting to be sandwiched and quilted.

Yesterday I got back to work.  I finished quilt #24.  It has even been washed.

I used half of a jelly roll by RJR Fabrics called Pixie Strips and PaintPots by Amy Ellis.

I am glad to have this one done, so I can move onto the next two and get back to my one at a time rule.
