Two finished little quilts have arrived at their new home in Texas, and I have it on good authority that they were well-received.
Marie is a blog-friend who has boy/girl twins about the same age as my kids, and she wanted two ragged-square quilts for her kiddos. A red one with dogs and a blue one with trucks/vehicles was the request. I might have stretched the color palate a little on the “blue” one, but I hope it’s satisfactory. They both measure roughly 24×36″.
I’m happy with the way they turned out, nice and scruffy after a run through the washer and dryer. Truth be told, though, these two mark the fifth and sixth ragged-square quilts I’ve made this year, so I hereby declare myself done with that pattern for a while. I don’t begrudge people for wanting it. It’s cute and soft and snuggly. I’m just ready to move on to something else. But would you believe that this marks twenty finishes for this year?! I can hardly believe it. Of course, more than half have been quite small, but still. 20!
Speaking of which… more finishes to show off shortly, and more starts, too!
And, tangentially related to sewing, head over to my other blog to see a fun use my son has discovered for empty spools of thread.
