Emery's Rag Quilt
I'd never made a real quilt. The closest I've come is the quilting of fabric for the purses I've made. Natalie has wanted a quilt for some time, and she especially wanted a rag quilt. We have her fabric all cut and just waiting for me to sew it. I told her doing this gave me a practice run at making one!
This was a family project. Natalie embroidered the dog and lamb. Bethany painted the ballet slippers and the big E. I did the quilting and sewing. This is all machine quilted. I would never get it done by hand. And Phil paid for all the supplies! : )
I've had a couple of ladies ask if I'd make some rag quilts to sell. After making this, I am sure I could do that. With Natalie's I will probably not do such fancy stitches, and will not put a border on it. I will see if I make more which style is preferred.
Hope you enjoy seeing our new venture!
