A Quilt for Raggs


Confetti
205 Pieces, 20" by 20"
Hand Pieced and Quilted

My first doll quilt completed and Raggs is very pleased.  Quilting was fun as I stitched on an angle, one way through the squares, forming a zig zag pattern, then I stitched around the inside edge of the border, followed by double rows of soft waves in the border.


My second doll quilt, Friendship Star is well under way and I am about to start joining the stars together.  Maybe a nice cup of tea and a little star stitching would be a perfect way to end the day.

Until next time.....happy quilting!
