Default Try a rag quilt

It will use up both the excess bat and your scrap squares. They don't have to be the same size and scrappy is the name of the game, rather than a laid out plan.

I know not cold weather yet, But it is coming soon. Not in a hurry really for it. But I started thinking about quilt making again. I did nothing last winter. RA too bad. I sorted some material early this spring and as far as I got. I am feeling some better and need to try to slowly start getting ready. Low vision now.

I went to thrift shops and got colored sheets to make borders and slashing on panel and block quilts. I find plain colors are best.. Appliques will show up on the borders. Least my plan. One I did worked that way.

I made my TG trip to older son's ok, On way back stopped at material store down there. Got some material and 4 batts. Batts are so high now. I did find bear panels and not as large as I would like.
