A finish! This raw edge quilt has been a fun project. I was able to include many of my favorite fabrics from old quilts, remnants, home projects and collectible items. I used white linen for the top peice in which I added all the cut fabric. I used a glue stick to lay them out and the sewing was done by machine to secure them onto the top. Then the fun started. I used embroidery, beads, buttons and anything interesting to add depth to the front.
Since mom moved in a few weeks ago, she has been kind enough to quilt it and do the binding. I just love the finished product. We used an old nightgown of hers as the back. Take a look at this adorable nightgown below that we used. I cut it up and then saved the bodice and sleeves to use in another project.

It is made of the softest cotton ever!

Turned out well. Now where to put it.
Hope everyone is having a great December, holiday month!
