The is a little rag quilt made with 2.5 inch squares. It was a challenge with Pat Sloan to use scraps this way. I made and error in sewing the blocks together and the fringe is now on the back of the quilt. This is the other side of this little rag quilt. I bought the fleece in 10 inch blocks. Got a pack of about 20 or so for $4.00 at Mennonite thrift store in Calgary. For Pat Sloan's challenge " hip to be square", I just made this quilt this size but I am still expanding on it. I have now added a row of 4 to each side and I am working on the other to sides so it will be a bit bigger. Just to small at the present size. Happy quilting, Carol

She actually uploaded it to her site for me and then I copied it. Managed for it to copy ok onto Facebook. Now am trying it here. So this if the front. I had meant for the fringe to be on this side. I sewed the blocks together the wrong way. So now this rag quilt has this block on the back and not the front.

Wow it is Feb. 7 already. Where does the time go. I am currently working on Pat Sloan's Vacation b.o.m. I have the second block done. And also on her Hip to be square challenge. I have many, many block done for that one. I finished a small rag quilt with my blocks and entered it into her draw. I made a big mistake on it be it will stay the way is it. I have the fringe on the side that I had intended for the back but oh while that is just the way it will have to be. I am planning on another border of different blocks too but didn't have time to get that far for this challenge so it is just a very small rag quilt at the moment. I have been working on liners for Days for Girls along with my other sewing. I really need to get back to my husbands quilt. Think I have decided on the blocks for the outer border but haven't got that started yet. Maybe I will get that started today. Happy quilting. Carol
