Shabby Raggy Soft and Snugly: Rag Quilt


Anyone who has ever made a Rag Quilt will probably understand, that I'm not exaggerating when I say 
.... there is cotton from one end of my studio to the other ... lol

But WHAT FUN it was, making my very first Shabby, Raggy, Soft and Snugly Rag Quilt, from a mix of (Organic Cotton Sateen and Quilting Weight Cotton) fabrics featuring designs from my "Shabby Rose" Collection.

From Fabric to Quilt Above.

Many thanks to the:

Now I better get busy and tidy up the studio :)

Cheers, Kris

    Beautiful fabrics and a beautiful finished labour of love!

    Maybe you could use the bits and pieces as stuffing for a bear or something? :-)

  2. It looks so good! Love the combos of your beautiful designs you've used. Really sweet quilt!

  3. It looks fabulous - definitely worth the mess!
