A Friday Finish -- Denim Rag Quilt



Just in time for tomorrows baseball game, I have a finished Denim Rag Quilt.

I used a total of 221 - 5" Squares. And I still have about a million more 5" denim squares plus all my other denim cut-ups. I'll be sewing denim forever.

I had never made a rag quilt before, and found it was rather fun to do. I didn't worry about accuracy or quilting. I just zoomed through it. If I make another one, I'll make sure to sew a 1/3" seam allowance instead of the standard 1/4" seam allowance. All the tutorials said to increase the seam allowance, but I raced through this and didn't even pause to think about changing the seam allowance. Oh well.

MK saw me taking pictures of this and immediately tried to snuggle into the quilt. She wrapped it around herself and said "Oh! This is so cozy!" I was having a hard time getting it away from her to take more pictures....but that's ok. I think she makes a pretty great model.

So happy to have this completed. We'll be taking this to the baseball game tomorrow. Depending on the weather, we could be wrapping this around ourselves or we could be laying it on the grass to sit on.
