It has only taken me almost three years to complete this quilt, but it just made it to be wrapped in Christmas paper as a gift!
it has a variety of patterns.......plain, stripe, check, geometric, floral, circles, farm scenes, gumnuts & some hand printed pieces, but i tried to keep the colours compatible.
i used cotton fabrics from shirts, table cloths, curtains, doona covers, pillow cases, sheets & bits & pieces from op shops from near & far. some of the fabrics go back to the seventies, the dominant orange & gold one & the little brown rose print.
my inspiration came from my sisters, they had all made raggy quilts a few years ago & i really liked the look & feel of them i wanted the edge to be raggy too so i cut bias strips from the shirt fabric & stitched it around the quilt to secure the outer squares before cutting.
happy new year to all!!
