Rag Quilt

This rag quilt of a client's was all sandwiched together when I got it. She had layered the top, batting and backing and sewed the squares through all the layers and then cut it off even around all 4 edges. This made it really fast to put on because all I had to do was to cut some strips of muslin and baste it to the top and bottom of the quilt. Not too much pinning required! :)
I used a pink thread (Old Rose) and quilted flowers in the smallest square of the layers, and then did flowers and squiggles in the borders.
