Finishing Christmas.

This past weekend was the end of Christmas for us. I took down the garland and packed away the ornaments and tree for next year.

I also had the time to finish the quilt I made my dad for Christmas. The type of quilt is called a "rag quilt" because of the frayed edges that are left on one side. Typically the frayed edges are on the side with the patterned fabric, but I thought it would be nice to make the plain side a little more interesting.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. It was my first attempt at a traditional quilt. All of the fabric I used is upcycled, the green is a set of old flannel sheets that I only used once or twice before Andrew and I got our big bed and all the fabrics on the opposite side are pieces of thrifted flannel shirts.
