My secret project, well, 1 of a few, can now be revealed! I started this quilt over a year ago for my mom. It truly was a labour of love. This was a crazy/rag quilt. Most of the fabrics in it are flannel, and there is a subtle Christmas theme to the fabrics. This was a challenging project for me. It starts out with creating 5 stacks of fabric, with 10 squares in each pile for a total of 50 squares. Once you have the 5 piles, you randomly cut one vertical and one horizontal cut through each pile. Once the stacks are cut, you 'shuffle' the stacks according to the pattern directions. Then, the crazy part...sewing them all back together. Anyway, here's a few shots of the process and the outcome. My mom loved it and that's all that matters to me! Love you Mom!
The Prep Work:
The placing of blocks (harder than you'd think):
Putting the binding on (one of my favourite parts):
And, Ta-Da, the finished project:
