I did manage to get Elsie's quilt finished and it was delivered yesterday. It is the first rag quilt I have made and I have to say I am pleased with the results. Although it took ages to clip all the exposed seams it frayed to a lovely soft finish. I will certainly be making more quilts like this - I think they would make lovely Linus quilts.
