Ryan and Brittany, for whom I was making the quilt, are committed to recyling, reusing and reducing - in a big way! - so my goal was to use only fabric that I already had on hand.
And here is the way it looked at 10:30 a.m. the morning of the wedding! It still had to be washed and dried, and thankfully one of our neighbors offered to do that for me.
I almost like the back as much as I like the front! I was 10 squares short of solid fabric so I did some piecing of remnants, which adds lots of interest. This side was not planned out at all!
You can see the random bits here.
Here it is, on a bed, all washed and dried, ready to be given - with lots of love! This is only the second quilt I've made and I felt the same way with the first - do I really have to give it away?! I think it will make a great picnic blanket or cover for guests to sleep under. I'm so glad this was what we decided to give as our gift. Now - who else would like a rag quilt?!!
