Another project finished:)

I am so glad that I finally made the decision to sew a rag quilt for my bed. I rarely make things for myself and this was something I had been thinking about for quite awhile. With school just around the corner I have a new classroom to set up so I knew I had either jump in and sew my blanket or wait until Christmas break. I am anticipating a very busy school year since I am making the move from teaching middle school math to teaching a 5/6 blend at an elementary school.

I used fabrics from Amy Butlers' Lotus Collection in shades of blue, green, and gray. Most of the fabrics I used for this rag quilt have been discontinued - a few will be available again in November.

After finishing the rag quilt I decided matching pillow cases were a must! (Picture is a little dark, had to use the camera on my cell phone...)


  1. That is beautiful! How long did this take you to sew?

  2. Oh...I have to say as well that you have inspired me to make one for dd's toddler bed. Thank you. This will give purpose to some fabric I've had my eye's on forever but couldn't figure out what to do with it.

  3. Angelina Fong Designs - I didn't keep really good track of how long it took, I sewed for a few hours one Saturday and then spent an hour or so a night for about a week maybe....I always mean to keep track of my time but forget:)
