Rag Quilt is finished!!!



I am so excited!!! I finished my niece India's rag quilt! It turned out so cute!! Bert was very helpful also on helping me work on this quilt. He was very lucky he didn't get a needle in the paw. He kept trying to stick his nose in my embroidery machine.



As I mentioned before this is a very random quilt...Here are some of the blocks that are on it. You can also see all the blocks in my Photobucket Folder. This was such fun to make however, it was a little strange. Since when stitching a rag quilt you have to stitch with the seams showing and it means that you have to stitch wrong sides together. I had to rip out a few stitches on this quilt. The Fabric is two types of denim on top, white flannel in the middle and on the back is a brown fabric and a Boyds Bear fabric. My niece does love her bears


Thanks for all your comments on Scary Bear....I found a different bear to use and I liked it better....You can see that in my photobucket account. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments....I love reading them!
