I took a break for Easter, but I made it back. Here is my newest rag quilt. I call it Chocolate Pistachio.
It's a square baby blanket - about 36" square. I love the colors in green and brown with a little blue mixed in. The fabric is flannel with a brown minky on the reverse side. For the X on the squares I used a leaf decorative stitch, which looks really good on the minky. I tried to use a contrasting color, but it just doesn't show up on the dark minky. For the combination of minky and flannel I don't use a middle fabric layer, but if you want the blanket extra warm, you should.
I've struggled a little with keeping the squares lined up using a straight stitch. On this quilt I changed to a zigzag to sew the squares together. Much better!
I've been working on a number of projects I will be showing soon. Stay tuned!
