Quilt Parade

Fall Quilt Festival time! Well, it's kind of a quilt...

I mean, I worked hard, planned the layout and really stretched myself with that dang red in there! But are rag quilts really QUILTS? Well, this one IS because I like it and am totally loving the colors! I can't tell you how I agonized over the red.

Back of quilt. Love that blue!

Enter Bubbles. This was the puppet commission I had been working on for three weeks. It was cool to try a new thing, experiment, learn some puppet stuff. God has opened so many unexpected doors for me!

Bubbles's daddy wanted to do the facial features - no, it's not a blind rabbit puppet.

I was having serious quilt withdrawls. So I pulled the Manzanita charms off the shelf and got a little crazy. Really my only goal was to get this thing done in as little time as possible just for the sake of:
1.) Sewing and
2.) Playing with fabric and colors again.

Hence the quickie rag quilt. Except I forgot they take forever to clip. Oh well. It's done and I can get back to Bubbles 2.1


  1. I love it! It looks so comfy :)

  2. I can understand your agonizing over the red in the quilt, I have been there before too. I do like how it turned out and let me tell you those bunnies are so very cute! Just plain cute!

  6. So lovely colors in that quilt, and it looks really cosy. Nice that you have lived in Sweden. I hope you enjoyed the time here. I live in Göteborg, on the westcoast. In Sweden quilting is a rather large hobby. Maybe not as big as in the US, but big in swedish proportions :) Have a great day!
