This is my first Quilt I made it for my Mom. It is from the Love is in the Air Layer Cake

So this is a new hobby/addiction of mine. I decided to practice on my nephew's here is oldest girls quilt. Her sisters isn't quite finished yet so I will post it when it is complete.

1st Quilters Anonymous Meeting

My first rag quilts were made for my twin nephews. I didn't want my first rag quilt to just be a typical 6 inchs square quilt. So I saw a pattern online with varied height blocks. So the finished blocks are 3in, 6in, and 9 inches tall. I also stitched with a 1 inch seam allowance. Of course I was constantly on the phone with my Quilters Anon. Sponsor. Of course they must both also include labels which my sponsor totally believes in and now I am too a believer. She also made me a believer in borders for rag quilts. These borders are in the same pattern just one in blue and one in green.
