December of 2009: This was the most fun I have had yet making a rag quilt. First of all, I was back East with the Fam, and it was December and the weather was cold and snowing. Perfect stay inside and sew weather.
Second, I got to use Joanne's great new (old) Singer, the kind of machine I wish I had. No jams, no fuss, just humming along sewing.
Third, Joanne already had helped me make my very first quilt, she knew the drill. We used some of her old jeans, some fabric I brought with me, and some new we bought there. The fabric I worried the most about, the flannel with mushrooms on it, turned out to be my favorite squares.
