show off friday~~~lost and found


Show Off Friday
I am showing off an old denim and flannel rag quilt that I thought was lost.  I gave it to my son years ago, and it had disappeared.   Well, we were babysitting my daughter's dog this week-end and I was surprised to see this quilt at the bottom of the dog crate under an old comforter : )


I machine quilted lots of subliminal messages like these...
Call Home(above) and Study(below) 


I  machine quilted different designs too.




I am glad this quilt was found, it will make a nice picnic quilt. 
 It was made with jeans and flannel shirts.  Have you ever made a rag quilt?
They are so easy and as you can see, a fun way to practice your machine quilting.


I am having so much fun with my stitching project, and I appreciate
the comments with the tips for making french knots.  They helped me a lot!


Now it is your turn to link up something~~~~ what do you have for

Show Off Friday

There are no rules for this link up party....this is just the place to show off projects you are working on!


piece,
