I finally downloaded my camera, so here's the next set of pictures showing my progress on my great-nephew's Christmas prezzie....
I got all the jeans squares cut & went to M&L Fabric in Anaheim to find the flannel for the back side of the rag quilt. I ended up getting 4 flannels, then decided that the one with the paw prints might be a bit 'young' for a 22 year old. But I still liked it, so I decided that I will use only 4 square of it, on the four outside corners. :D The other 3 colors are being sewn together in a repeating order.
I've had some aggravation sewing it together. First I sewed all the 8" squares together into rows....and realized I had the seams on the WRONG side! Argh!!!! Unstitching ensued, then resewed the way I really wanted them. Then began sewing the rows together. Rows 1-4 done, held it up....RATS! Row 4 is not correct! Unstitched & threw it all down for a while. A few days later I was still not ready for those, so I switched to the 6" squares for the outside borders. Top row sewed together, just about to start on the right side border and...wait! Counted wrong on the top one, had 2 too many squares! Redid that & managed to do all 4 borders without further incident. I still haven't gone back to the 8" ones for the center, but I did figure out that I just had the rows out of order, so no more unsewing. Hopefully I will force myself to sew on it TONIGHT! :D
Then I'll take more pictures when it's done, but for now....
Hopefully I will get back to sewing it TONIGHT! Wish me luck!
