I finished this quilt a while ago, but it’s finally breaking in. Sometimes it’s takes flannel a little while to warm up to it’s full snuggly potential.
It’s a rag quilt. But it’s not only a rag quilt…
Now that the mercury is dropping this quilt is getting a lot of play. It’s small enough and portable enough to go to campfires and sit outside, but it also sits on the bed most days, too.
I wanted to get better with my quilting skills and thus made each of the 90 squares a different quilted pattern.
This is my personal favorite square – a beet. Beets have slowly taken on great symbolic meaning in my life. So much so, in fact, that the very word is engraved on the inside of my wedding band.
A warm reminder of sunnier times.
The inspiration for each block came from my everyday life. I love looking at it and thinking of what each one means. This, in particular, is a reminder to learn the play that fiddle in our basement.
