Greetings from Country By Design…

Greetings from Country By Design.  I do live in the country, but I'm not going to talk about farming, not much anyway.  I like to talk about sewing and quilting, especially rag quilting.  Here are two of my latest projects.

 

The pot holders are rag quilted with denim squares and appliqued hearts.  The table runner uses the same idea.  For the pot holders, four 8 inch denim, batting, fabric squares are quilted by stitching  diagonally as well as vertically and horizontally thru all three layers. 

                            

               The hearts are stitched to one set of squares before they are stitched on the edges to the other denim, batting, fabric sandwich.     

The table runner uses the same technique, except the hearts are stitched thru all three layers, the denim, batting, and backing.  The table runner squares are sown together using a 5/8 inch seam.  All edges are stitched 5/8 inch in from the edge.  Then all that is left to do is clip the seams and edges and run thru a cycle in the washer and dryer to fray the seams and edges.
