Quilt Festival - Raggedy Ann & Andy Quilt

Amy over at Park City Girl is holding the annual Bloggers Quilt Festival over at her blog. So I decided to showcase my latest quilt. My latest meaning I just finished binding it today! Whoopee!

This quilt is for my sister who had mailed me a huge box of fabric 2 weeks ago that she had bought and cut up into squares and wanted to make..... wait for it....10 years ago! Yes, these cute little cut up Raggedy Ann squares were already to be sewn together but no one had the time to do it until now! I just learned how to quilt a couple of years ago and have 3 finished quilts under my belt and so I was happy to take these squares and make them into a cute little baby quilt.



Since my sister had this fabric all cut already into squares I chose to do a nine patch quilt (she said I can chose any pattern I think would look best), which a handy tutorial is on the right side of this blog.



I zig-zag stitched it together. This method reminded of "zig-zag stitching" the dolls together, which to me had a vintage feel to it.



I chose a red binding to bring the colors together from this darling fabric.




My daughter just couldn't resist snuggling up to the quilt as I was finishing up binding.



Hope you like how it came out sis!
