We had lunch with JW's family yesterday. We didn't get much done otherwise. It was rainy and we felt like being lazy.
Today is a different story. I did laundry, cooked, we cleaned, and now while JW is at his men's group meeting at church, I am at the sewing machine.
Back in September I started on a rag quilt, but had to put it away for a while.
I messed up my back in October and was on complete bed rest for the month. I still wasn't well enough to sit in my sewing chair for any amount of time, until now.
My back, while not completely healed, is better enough that I am able to sit at the machine for a while and work on the quilt.
I already had all of the squares already cut, thanks to my Accuquilt. All I have to do now is finish pinning a few squares together that I had left to do, and sew everything together.
If you like doing rag quilts, the best investment you could ever make to save your hands is the Accuquilt.
It has a rag die that pre-cuts all of the rag for you. Seriously the best thing I ever bought.
Here is my stack I still have to pin. There are three pieces to the sandwich.
The top, which is just a patterned cotton, the middle is a square of polyfil and the back piece is white flannel.

The colors used are beige's and light greens.
I think it will make a lovely quilt. I will be happy to have it finally done so I can start on another!
