Tattered and Loved

One of my good friends had a birthday a couple of weeks ago. I decided I wanted to make her something special...and not just buy her something. I sneakily (is that a word?), asked her what her favorite colors, I know, nothing like perking her curiosity. She told me and I went to work gathering items from my stash of fabrics. It's been a LOOONGGGG while since I made one of these quilts...I'm not gonna lie. I'm a LITTLE out of practice, but I think the outcome is beautiful and she loved it so that's all that matters. I had hoped it would be bigger (...I measured a wee bit wrong and ended up with a lap quilt instead), but it's something she really will cherish as her kids grow. I L-O-V-E how rag quilts look, and they are SOOOO easy to make (you don't even have to be a perfect sewing person). She was actually more surprised at the fact I had pics of her kids that she didn't think I you Facebook! I was able to go in and grab some photos, edit, and enlarge them with my graphics program.

Here's what I ended up with...:)

I'm sure I'll find some linky parties to connect this post with, so be sure to visit and check out other cool creations by my bloggy friends...:)
