    Here is a pic of the first quilt I made. It is a "Raggedy" quilt and I was shown how to do this at a quilt shop. I went home, looted my stash and made the quilt.

    The blue quilt is also a raggedy and made for my great-great-nephew. No, I'm really not that old!

    I now have the cutting board, rotary cutter and
    necessary rulers to do most quilting.



    I'm telling Santa I want a bigger cutting board!

    Those are nice. Are they made out of flannel or cotton?

    They are three layers. The front and back are cotton and the "batting" is flannel.

    Those are both wonderful. I love rag quilts. They always look so warm and cuddly. Your little dog is so cute.

    very nice quilt. Great puppy, she's a cutie pie. But wondering why it said "my last dog" (willow) is she not with you anymore? I like raggy quilts but i have yet to make one.

    I call her my last dog because after Willow, I don't think I can take any more.

    She is my 4th dog. I have an Anatolian shepherd/Lab mix (about 50 lbs), a Jack Russell/Pit Bull mix (very over weight), Big sister Chihuahua (Tinkerbelle) 16 months old, and little Willow who is 7 months old. She is full sister to Tinkerbelle.

    She is last. I'm getting too old for puppies!

    Oh, yeah, raggy quilts are really easy to make. Just sandwich the layers sew it up, trim and wash. The hardest part was the trimming! That and cleaning out the washer and dryer afterwards! LOL
