I must admit that I have never been into quilting. I think the perfectness of cutting the fabric is what intimidates me along with the whole matching up the seams. However, my friend Christine has a web sight that sells fabric packs where the fabric is already matched up and cut. Now that is very appealing to me. No trying to choose fabrics and colors and all the cutting is done for you. I bought what is called a Jelly Roll which is 40 strips of fabric cut to 2 1/2" by 40". I then came across this rag quilt on Pinterest and thought it might be something I might be able to make.
Click HERE for a great tutorial on how to make this quilt.
Here is the particular Jelly Roll I used, it is called Origins by Basic Grey. I also bought 2 1/2 yards of a yellow fabric and cut 40 strips for the backing of each of the Jelly Roll strips.
I gathered together my sewing supplies and set about to make my quilt.
Here are some of the strips that I have put together with the batting in between.
And here is a shot of the first eight strips sewn together. The seams will be clipped and frayed when the whole quilt is finished.
WHO SAYS PEOPLE ONLY PIN THINGS ON PINTEREST?
MY GOAL IS TO ACTUALLY MAKE SOME THINGS TOO.
Hopefully I will be able to show the finished project by the end of the week.
What have you made with your Pinterest inspirations? I would love to hear about them.
