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!
