Sara decided now that we are done with school and bored out of our minds that she would take up quilting. Her mom gave her a bunch of old levi's so she decided for her first quilt she would make a levi rag quilt. Now most people when they first start quilting might try making a baby blanket just to get their feet wet and practise a little before they move on to bigger quilts. But not my Sara. She decided to make a CALIFORNIA KING sized quilt. So we got online and found the demensions for the quilt and found out that it was 110 inches by 96 inches. So then she started cutting. It took a bout a week to cut 265, 8 inch squares out of old levi's.
And here they are all laid out.
It is huge!! Now most people for their first quilt would be satitsfied with a normal plain back side of the quilt perhaps a good plaid pattern but not my Sara. She did some searching online and found a levi quilt with an American flag pattern for the back and she had to have it espesially since it is memorial weekend and all. So we went to walmart and bought some red, white and blue material for the back side. She then cut out those and made them into an amerian flag.
Here is a close up of a couple of the red and white materials
Here it is all sewn together.
So she has got the backside all sewn together and as I type she is sewing the last row of levi's together. And she just started to cut out the levi's last Saturday. She is freaking amazing.
I will post more as it comes along.
