Simple Pleasures Continued….

There is something about sewing that is therapeutic. Maybe it is the steady rhythm of the needle. Maybe it is the soft comfort of the fabric. I don’t really know why sewing is so soothing. I only know that it is. Maybe sometimes we just have to enjoy the pleasures in life and not have all the answers. Yesterday, I did just that. I made this quilt just for the relaxation of the act of creating something simple and pretty. I layered the top, the batting and the backing. The three layers are connected with simple ties of embroidery floss. The edging is a ruffled rag finish. It’s just a small lap quilt but it gave me a lot more.

    G’day Jamie. That is a gorgeous quilt. The colours are very good together, aren’t they? I am just starting a raggy quilt for my queen size bed. I made one a few years ago and it is thrown over the couch and looks just lovely. I am thinking of making some raggy placemats for the dining table as well, but haven’t got around to doing these just yet. Take care. Liz…

    Beautiful quilt! Sometimes simple patchwork really is the best. 🙂
