    Groovy Rag Quilt

    I finally finished a rag quilt I will be sending to my daughter. It's a groovy quilt! I embroidered various "hippy" designs on the blocks. Very colorful and I hope my daughter likes it. It's only been washed and dried once but it ragged out pretty good. I used the Accuquilt 8 inch rag quilt to cut the blocks and the 6 inch square to cut the batting.

    I hope the pictures do it justice!

    Hugs!
    Debbie

    Great quilt!!! Boy, does that ever take me back! Wish I'd save my bellbottoms (not that they'd fit)!

    And love will steer the stars

    How long will this be stuck in my head? LOL

    Love it! The colors are so bright and pretty - wish I had an cutter for my rag quilts, I have done them by hand...and when down to the last minute, blisters from cutting to much to fast repeatedly! Love the "hippie" theme!

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. The quilt is being shipped out to my daughter tomorrow. I washed it and dried it one more time and it's even raggier! I can't wait to hear her response when she opens it. She always says she should have been born in 1957 instead of me! She loves the songs of the 60's and 70's and when she was little I actually had a VW bus that was lime green! I can't get the song "Daydream Believer" out of my head since I made this quilt.

    Hugs!
    Debbie
