|And, as you know -- we spent some time at my sister Rondás house -- looking at her ragged edge flannel quilts.|
|Ronda has done scores of these quilts...she can hammer one out in a week or so...|
|Taking my lessons from Ronda -- we've made these ragged edge quilts with Lilly and Memphis -- and last year, Warren got one for Christmas, too. I incorporated some t-shirts. His favorite, Thomas train, his Dad's football team, etc...|
|That blanket quickly became his favorite thing to sleep with (Frankie, too)...|
|Mary's new book, "Second Chance T-Shirt Gifts" has LOTS OF GREAT IDEAS -- and using t-shirts to make a ragged edge quilt is a REAL WINNER.|
Making that quilt will takes weeks -- if not months -- and it will end up costing you hundreds of dollars. WHICH IS WHY MARY'S SYSTEM is sooo genius. Because you can do every bit of it yourself -- and, depending on the size, and your devotion -- you can get the whole thing done in just a few days.
If I'm not explaining it well enough -- you can check out the new Sewing With Nancy shows -- which explain the method completely...
