It's been awhile since a WIP post. Life got crazy for a bit. I had a little health hiccup and other "stop you in your tracks" moments. Now back to life in the cave, sewing up a storm. Fun things. Something for ME! Can you believe it! Just a little lap size cuddle quilt!
Sew....we got a new leather chair for the living room. It has no arms and I was sure it was probably too big for the spot, but after having it hang around a day or so - I. love. it!
Only problem I had was it looked a little naked. It has this cute back and, well, it needed something. I made a soft and cuddly rag quilt for it this past weekend. It was FUN to make, went really fast (9.5 inch squares), is super soft (Robert Kaufman flannel- to die for) and I'm pretty sure the chair said "you complete me" when I laid it over the back!
I'm on to making a matching pillow, it's half way done- the newest WIP!
PS If you have never made a flannel rag quilt, you really need to do a google and get yourself going on one. The first one I ever made was a twin size and I put batting in between the layers,as the pattern said. It was the last one I have made that way...too stiff. I love just the two layers...much softer and much faster to make. I've made several. Baby rag quilts make up really fast if you need one in a hurry - and are quite adorable.
