Raw Edge Quilt

Here's my latest project.  I saw this on CRAZY MOM QUILTS and so loved the raw edge aspect of it!  Thank you so much amandajean for giving such clear and easy instructions.  I'm having a ball doing this.  It was so easy to make this project mine. I have all the squares just a little off, like me! It's perfect.

Just wanted to let all of you know that I am having fun doing this blog too.  I've haven't been real good at getting around to posting here at artstudio49, but it was never my intention to stay to a rigid schedule, and this is proof!

I'm ready to start quilting.  The back is a white on white Hawaiian print of ferns and Hibiscus flowers with two uneven strips of a Navy Blue background fabric with the same type of flowery print. I hope you can see the pattern of the white because it looks fabulous with the navy blue. The other great thing about this quilt is that it is entirely made up of scraps that were in my closet just sitting there doing nothing.

So I would say I'm a quarter into this project and will keep you posted on how it's going.  I haven't quilted anything this big.  I don't know what kinds of problems if any I'll run into, but will let you know.  In the mean time I will post some of my Art Journaling.  I have a lot to post. See you soon.

Your quilt is looking nice. It's great to use up some scraps you've been saving plus it feels good to curl up under a blanket you've made yourself.
