My favorite project this month has been making rag quilt letters following the tutorial from Happy Together. It was a great way to get practice using the walking foot attachment for my sewing machine. I used denim from worn out jeans and fabric remnants to back the letters. I used fleece for the padding and quilting cotton for the top layer. I quilted them fairly densely to ensure that they would be nice and firm. I love the way they feel. I look forward to making a set of lowercase letters and numbers someday soon.
I think they will be fun for a long time. The recipient's momma has some great ideas of how to play with them. It was a great project. It allowed me to re-purpose things and use small amounts of materials that I love. I'll definitely be making more!
