That’s what my husband calls this quilt. A bad bad copy.
He doesn’t like it because he thinks it is too much like his Woogie, but not as good! It is, after all, made with his woogie’s leftovers. But it isn’t a ragged-edge quilt like his.
Instead of a ragged edge quilt, I made a typical top and back out of my flannel scraps. The quilting was easy on this quilt because I didn’t fool myself into trying to free-motion-quilt it. I just stitched in every ditch and got it done. I think that’s the perfect treatment for this quilt though.
I tell him that it is still wonderful and soft and fluffy and will be loved by its recipient, whomever that may be.
For now, it will stay all folded up and waiting. Waiting for some new baby boy that deserves a wonderful and soft and fluffy new woogie of his own.
The quilt is 40″ x 48″ and made completely up of leftover flannels just sitting and waiting in my sewing room. I made the top as part of a challenge, and then finally finished it completely as part of yet another challenge.
Edited to add: Since this is pretty much my quilt journal, I wanted to add that this quilt was given to a little boy Callahan – the newborn son of one of my husband’s coworkers.
