I'm obsessed...

With braiding....fabric rag rugs....and braiding...more and more fabric....25 yards to be exact...this is my 'ball'. It is the size of a medicine ball according to my husband. I rolled it up to keep the fabric from tangling while I sew the rug together. If I estimated correctly, it will be nearly a 50 inch rug! I used only 1930's scraps. I didn't put a dent in my 1 1/2 inch scrap box. This rag rug was a tutorial on Moda Bakeshop. I just love it so far. The only other item I finished this weekend was the Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery BOM #9.
With 9 blocks I should be able to start the finishing kit..yeah right.
I did get 3 quilts back from my local quilter. He's had them for 2 months...I was beginning to wonder...but he's like that...all of a sudden he finishes a bunch. I am not sure when I will get those posted. This week could prove to be quite busy at work.

The medicine ball look really pretty just like that! I love it and can't wait to see it in a rug. The BOM is fantastic.

Can't wait to see the rug. I was going to try one but I'm undecided. It may be my summertime "take it with me" project.

Wow, that rag rug ball is huge...where will you place the finished rug? It's almost too cute to step on...
Congrats on your monthly BOM finish ~ I recently realized that there are only 3 blocks left and I should start deciding on what to do whith them...my actual plan is, to make setting blocks so that the quilt will fit my bed...
Hugs, Julia
