FO: Pooh Rag

Okay, that's probably not the nicest name for a quilt, but it's accurate so it's the name it's getting.
 It's a rag quilt, and it's covered in Pooh
And some Tigger too.

This little quilt was put together from a kit Mom had kicking around. She asked if I would like to put it together, and it should have been quick easy project. It was fairly quick - just a couple hours, but it was anything but easy. Whoever cut the squares for the kit must have been drunk. Hald of them were crooked, and very few of them were the same size. It also came with pre-clipped edges (needed for the fraying), and they kept getting caught on the foot of the machine. It makes much more sense to clip after it's all sewn together. But I persevered.
The "chenille" between the squares is created by the raw edges, and it gets fluffier and fluffier as the blanket is washed and loved.

This one will be packed off to Natalie at Bee Meadow Farm for her annual silent auction.
That is, if Relic will let me get it packed into a box...

I don't know whether you are getting that quilt back or not. Relic looks pretty serious about it. LOL

Oh, how nice-a rag quilt is indeed very comfy! Aren't you glad you persevered through the silly little clippings because now it is done! Very cute.

Love Pooh, Tigger, the blanket, and of course, Relic, too.

That kitty is loving that blanket. He needs one of his own now.
