Well awhile back I talked a bit about my reversible rag quilt. Well ladies it is finished and I have posted it here for all to see. The first picture is the "warding sign design " used in Celtic lore to ward off evil or danger the second picture is of the quilt turned back so all can see a smattering of different colors and patterns on the reversed side. Notice how the fringe is on both sides of the rag quilt making it reversible I used Maywood Studios flannel from the Bunny collection on the many colors side and the tweed flannel from Maywood Studios on the Warding Side. Hope you all like it, it is very heavy and very warm on our cold winter nights. Well the pictures are reversed
What a fun quilt your rag quilt is! I can only imagine how warm and cozy one would feel snuggled under it on cold nights. Love your fabrics.
Wow, nice work! I can't imagine working with the fringe and lining up the front and the back so perfectly. Very well done!
Beautiful quilt Elizabeth. This is the first reversible rag quilt I've ever seen. WTG.
I've never seen a rag quilt with the fringe on both sides, either. Neat!
I love your rag quilt and I love the bed it is on just as much....beautiful. Did you put batting between your flannels?
elizabeth, thanks for showing us your quilts. they make my want to cuddle right up in them and take a nap. i missed my nap today. anna was having a melt-down in my napping spot. gini
gini in north idaho
Doesn't Anna know that meltdowns in Nana's nap spot isn't appropriate....lol. Hopefully you will get that nap tomorrow.
Sorry you didn't have a nap today Gini. Did it make you cranky? LOL. You'll have to find Anna a different melt down spot.
yes, it did make me pretty grumpy, but it wasn't from lack of a nap. i tell the kids i'm the mean gramma, 'cause i make them mind. unfortunately, sometimes the kids protest with tantrums. i thought anna had outgrown them, seems i was wrong. she fell asleep and was pretty chagrinned when she woke up. i'm trying out new technique for wil and my violin practice, so he was doing a little protest of his own.
oh, and walking home from the bus, wil took a detour and decided to check out the ponds. he broke through the ice, of course, and filled his new boots. i've never heard such a lot of howling. it's gonna take days for the boots to dry out, they have thick felt liners. his coat and snowpants were completely drenched. we couldn't walk through the living room for drying boots and clothes. good lesson though, the ponds are shallow and only knee deep on me in the winter, and now he knows why we don't go out on the ice without asking.
there is no rest or naps for the wicked tomorrow. it's my long day with activities, help at both schools, dance, violin, and choir. their dad will help with some of it, as he starts his midweek days off now. gini, with the aching ears.
elizabeth - great quilt - and I applaud you 100% - with my hands I made one lap size rag quilt and that was it - took me a whole year to clip all the seams... Yours is beautiful!
Elizabeth, I really like your rag quilt. I see so many nice things on this site, that make me decide to put them on my to do list, and with your quilt I have decided that I definitely need to do a rag quilt this year.
Love your rag quilt.
I know for one that I am a fan of rag quilts and they are so fun to make.

I'm glad will was seriously hurt. What a way to learn a lesson. Hope you get a nap in tomorrow.

They could never multi-task like us women do.
