What a day....Rebecca's rag quilt!

So Rebecca finished clipping her quilt for school...remember, her colors are orange and black--The Chaparral Cowboys.  Here is her raggy measures over 5 feet long and about 2 1/2 feet tall...
And here is an up close picture...even the letters were flannel-backed and ragged....All the fabric is from vintage shirts....except the white, of course!!

On another note, a local quilt shop, Nancy's Quilt Shop in NW Las Vegas, announced that it was closing its doors.  The 50% off sale started on last week...that is 50% off of everything!!  I made a point of buying lots and lots of fabric for backings....I'll post pics tomorrow.  ;-)  It is sad to see one of the 5 quilt shops in town close down (due to retirement).....


  1. Wow - that is super cool. How did you get the letters on and ragged??? Impressive!

  2. We printed the letters in size 500 font from the computer...just the outline of the letters. Then cut out a flannel piece and the black piece of each letter. I sewed them on 1/4" from the edge of the letter--like raw edge applique. The Rebecca snipped around the edges of the letters and the flannel. It actually all came together rather nicely!!


It is great to hear from you... I had to eliminate anonymous comments due to spamming....sorry!
