Winter Spice Flannel Curves....

I started this quilt back in 2013 with some beautiful flannel called "Winter Spice" I purchased at FQS with a gift certificate I had won in 2012...it is on my WOOFA challenge list so I decided to bring it out of the UFO pile.......

...............this was the old layout I had back in 2013 and I had already cut all the patches out and sewed 16  of the 64 squares sewed together RIGHT sides together..... 




my plan had been to make the quilt a rag quilt and after looking at the 16, I wondered "why hadn't I sewed them together with the wrong sides together if I was making a rag quilt?"

In checking back at old posts apparently at the time I was afraid the quarter inch seam would come apart after clipping it so it would fray....



hmmmmmmm....well....the seam ripper and I had a little conversation and decided that wouldn't happen so we un-did the seams then I re-sewed them again this time with wrong sides together...clipped them and decided they will be just fine.





The templates I used are Elisa's Crazy Curves templates, which really are just Drunkard's Path templates....but I do remember I was able to cut 4 layers at a time so I was happy about that..........

So, as I said, this project is on my WOOFA list....and it is going pretty fast now so ....I think I will be able to add it to my October finishes..........

Lovely fabrics. I have not seen a curved seam rag rug so am interested in how it turns out. xx

Oh - I LOVE that quote!!!!! The colours in your quilt are wonderful - I've always been a fan of saturated colours over the pastels.

I have a lovely book by Lisa Bergene from the time I started to be interested in quilting, (I’m not advertising, just saying I love this book) which has lots of frayed patterns but so far I haven’t made any. Must admit I did buy it mainly for the pouches and I have made a few of those so that’s good!

Your quilt looked lovely with the ordinary seams but I’m sure it will be even more wonderful when you have “ragged” it! Such gorgeous rgeous warm colours! Interesting to see how it turns out!
