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...)
