Rag Quilts

These rag quilts sure are fun to make!..about 5 years ago a friend of mine gifted me 12 pumpkin blocks, all done by different Gals.
I finally put them in a quilt this morning..

Also made 2 pillowcases. One for me & one for my Son's body pillow...mine is made with 2 flannels with squirrels & acorns, his has WWII airplanes with a black background..He picked it...I have a little bit of his fabric leftover thinking of making a valance for his newly painted room....(Update)*** I made the valance but he doesn't want it , he said it was too young looking for him..which I understand..He has nice bamboo shades.

Also made another Rag quilt with a couple charm packs. Pretty roses.

And finally finished the rug I was crocheting with Bulky yarns..
 Just came out of the dryer...the back is also green.
I hand sewed rubber backing onto this measures around a yard in diameter.
washed & dried twice.
Forgot to mention this wrapped bowl I made..I keep my most used notions in it.
Always wanted to make one...I need thicker clothesline I think.
Used Christmas fabric scraps to make it.
Just took it out of the dryer..

The rag quilt looks great, bet you are happy to have used those blocks and have another UFO finished! the basket is a great way to use fabrics you really just need to use up, who would think those are Christmas fabrics, not me.
