Thursday's project..Homespun Rag Quilt
 Old Road Primitives shared a tutorial that inspired me.  I had never made one before, but I was able to start and finish it all in one day!  These quilts seem to go together really quickly...and I don't even own a rotary cutter, cut all 80 fabric squares & batting by hand with good ole scissors ...boy oh boy was my hand tired...LOL...but hey! I used up some of my Homespun Stash!

~ Maygan says it's cozy...she slept with it last night :)

Stay Cozy my Friends,


  1. Beautiful photos, Traci. The rag quilt did go together fast, Kim just did the tutorial! Your
    good. And she just did the matching pillow tutorial. It looks beautiful.

  2. Love the pictures of displays in your kitchen. Just prim perfect. Great job on the quilt. I haven't gotten the courage to try one yet. Love the pictures of the trees. Sapping trees has always amazed me. Have a good Sunday and stay warm. Oh,and I love the Girl Scout shortbread and the mint cookies. Always have to get a few boxes.

I too saw Kim's tutorial and thought it was wonderful.I have added it to my long,long list of things I would like to try my hand at.
