Raggy Quilt, Raggy Totebag

Hello!  I've been keeping myself busy doing raggy stuff this month.  Our small town has a wonderful Senior Center; our quilting ladies meet on Wednesday.  Some of the ladies are working on a hand-sewn, hand-quilted Southern Belle quilt.  I decided to work on raggy items instead.  Our Director asked me to teach a class.  The 1st week we did a raggy runner; the 2nd week I gave out the instructions for a raggy quilt.  This week I did raggy totes.  (I'll show a photo of the totes after they are washed.)  We had fun and I think the ladies enjoyed the classes.

Hello after a long absence.  This has been an eventful summer for me. The night before Memorial Day, I fell in my den and broke my shoulder. It was a clean break, so it had to heal on it's own. Needless to say, I "lost" the month of June. Now, after P/T, I'm better than I was before, though I wouldn't want to repeat that accident, lol. My therapist did tell me I did good by starting to sew when I did (waited until my doctor told me I could take off sling.)
I've made sachets, rice bags, mouse pads and am now working on a raggy quilt for the Senior Center. Yesterday I started listing again on the internet. Check out my quilt tops on eBay and etsy. Here's a link.......
and here's a photo of one of the quilt tops.
