So I have spent the last week madly dashing around trying to figure out what to pack and what to stay (I'm moving into a place with very limited space). It took three large plastic totes, and one bankers box just to get all my scrapbook paper!!!
I have the majority of my crafts supplies packed up, as those are things I cannot live without. Well I could I just don't want too.
Hopefully once I get all settled in I will be able to resume my crafting. Thanks for stopping by!-AR
So I made another rag quilt! This time I made a baby one for a friend at work.
This one is 35x35 and I used fleece. While the fleece doesn't fray like in a normal rag quilt, it is still super cute! This one because of the size only took me a couple of hours to make, from start to finish.
So I didn't something this last week I haven't don't in awhile: Sewing!!
I recently bought a new sewing machine and was dying to try it out. I had a friend who was having a birthday coming up, so I took to Pinterest to decide what to make
I settled on a rag quilt after my cousin posted one she made to Facebook. My best friend is a rag quilt queen so I pestered her with questions.
I decided on a purple and blue color scheme and so bought four different purple and four different blues. I got a yard of each in 100% cotton. I also got a few yards of white flannel for the middle.
My quilt blocks I cut to seven inches so that when sewn they would be six inches. I used a half inch seam allowance. My blocks consisted of fabric, flannel, fabric. I pinned the blocks together and then sewed an "x" across each one. Once done with the help of my mom I laid them out how I wanted.
I then pinned the blocks in to rows and sewed them together.
Once all together it was time to start cutting!! This took me several hours over the course of a couple of days. I got VERY tired of cutting.
Once that was done it was into the washer, dried, and then repeated once more. The final result was beautiful!
I loved the way it turned out!! And I cannot wait to make another :)
