A Little Rag Time
Hi folks, I'm learning how to quilt, and I'd like to share the results of my first two attempts. Snowcatcher has documented the process via photographs. Both are rag quilts, albeit no official rags were employed.
The first quilt is a baby rag quilt. I cut and joined 6 x 6-inch fabric squares, then cut to fray and washed. A super cuddly felt backing mitigated any need for filling. The baby quilt measures 28.5 x 28.5 inches.
My second quilt is a lap rag quilt measuring 38 x 38 inches. The theme is a kaleidoscopic montage of lizardness (imagine that). I used heavy yet soft flannel as a backing; and like the baby quilt, I did not use any fill material. The lizard squares were cut to 6 x 6 inches.
Finished and washed quilt
I'm currently working on a summer/bohemian/gypsy dress; we'll see how that goes. Gasp... NO, it's not for me. Lizards prefer birthday suits.
