A new raggy throw for the rv

June 8, 2010

Three or four years ago I made myself a flannel sunflower raggy quilt and somehow it sneaked  into the rv because it suited the colour scheme. Then my sister asked for a green quilt, as opposed to her Christmas quilt. I found more sunflower flannels and made her a quilt for the settee and was left with a load of off cuts and left over fabric from these two raggy quilts.

My original sunflower quilt is a bit of favourite in the rv and there is always more than one person wanting it at the same time. So last year I gathered up all my pieces, raided my friends Anne and Janet’s stashes and scrap bags with the intention of making a second quilt. Sadly the summer passed and I put all the fabrics away as I prepared for the Fall show season. Christmas time my friend Melissa sent me a parcel of bits  which included some black flowery flannel.

So with the Spring show season over and as a respite from the decorating I pulled out all the fabric, drew out a 9 square grid and plotted out my fabrics… and this is how they came together…


Hey presto….


The front and those famous feet!



The back

Thank you Anne, Janet and Melissa for all your fabrics its become a special quilt and is now waiting to join its washed sibling in the rv. And thank you quilt hanging feet. Not a great work of art but a soft flannel throw to share in the rv with the boys.
