My Finished Quilt top! I have to of course still quilt it and bind it but the piecing is all done :)

Tutorial found here...

Not bad for only my 3rd ever and the most difficult so far. Although it was easy, I have to remember to pay closer attention to where I want the pieces. I had to seam rip a couple of times because I sewed the edging on wrong side up or to the wrong piece. LOL. I also need to work on lining things up better.

Want to see my work in progress? My 3rd attempt at a quilt. This one is going really fast and I am quite excited about it! I haven't decided if I will sash in the white, but it is all I have right now. I may try and tea dye it to get the color closer.

Boy it's been forever and a day since I posted. With all 5 home over summer and my sewing area being in the hottest area of the house not much got done. I finally decided to tackle my first rag quilt. I made it as a gift for my SIL's soon to be here new baby but if I can't get it less linty I think I will keep it for my kids. Boy I sure didn't think it would be as labour intensive as it was. My hands are cramped into odd contortions thanks to all the snipping of the seams. Oh and here is where I got the tutorial (for those who like pain as much as I do ;) All told I am guessing maybe 3-4 hours all told. Next up is this pattern I think...
