Hand cramp!! And a finished quilt

Rikka (from ricochet and awaywasn’t kidding when she said she got hand cramp snipping all the edges on her blanket! My finished quilt is half the size of hers but I am so glad it wasn’t bigger!

I went with the simple X for each square and spent ages working out how to order the squares so I didn’t have any matching fabric next to each other on the front, or the back!

I am so happy with how it turned out too and think it will make a lovely gift for my soon to arrive cousin! (This will be the first girl born into my near family circle since me! 6 Boys, and finally a girl!)
I also feel really happy that I finally made a quilt! I see them on Etsy a lot and they are always soooo beautiful 🙂


  1. Well done ou, it is fab! I have just made my first quilt too and I must admit that the feeling of achievement is a nice one! I wish I had the patience to do a full adult size one though…

  2. I love your rag quilt! You must have used poofier batting than I did, because yours looks so much fluffier than mine. Thanks for the shout-out! We should do a blog swap one of these days.
