So, I've been working on my own method for making a rag quilt with circles instead of squares. I've seen other people make quilts like this but have never seen a good method describing how to make one so I decided to come up with my own.
So far, I'm liking it!! :)
I used 4 charm square packs to make this one. It's pretty big and extra long. (It's nice when a quilt can cover you from head to feet!)
Notice it was almost impossible to take pictures without the dogs getting in the way. Oh well, they provide scale!!
What do you think?
This is what it looks like prior to me making any "cuts". I actually like it this way but have noticed that it doesn't wash really great unless the edges are clipped.
There are about 10 pairs of jeans in this one (I think). Of course, it won't be washed until I'm done clipping all of the seams.
I'm trying to spread out the clipping so it doesn't aggravate my hand and arms. Although I do have spring loaded scissors that are very sharp and this seems to make all the difference. I can't imagine doing this without the spring loaded ones.
Having lots of fun! Thanks for stopping by!
