For quite some time I wanted to make a rag quilt, which you do with flannel. So here was my chance! With the Quilting Bee Sparta we started to work on it. We bought white flannel for the batting and Maria Kalamara had a nice big piece of blue. This is the result. Doesn't it look gorgeous??
After you sew all the pieces together you have to cut the seams and the borders. This is a lot of work, but luckily we had Demi Kapetanea who didn't mind and did nearly all the cutting. Because she had become an "expert" she also did this little baby quilt.
Here you can see how it works. The cuttings don't look so nice now. That is because they have to be washed and put in a dryer to intertwine. After that they turn up like this.
The big quilt hasn't been washed and dried yet. From the leftovers I made this cute cushion, that we gave to a friend who was recovering from a big operation. I must say that I love rag quilting. It is fun.
That's it for now. Next time I will tell you about our ceramic classes.
