Christmas Quilt for Dad; Update #3

While most people spent their day shopping for presents, I was busy working on a present…my father’s Christmas gift. My “goal”, if you’ve been following along, was to have my father’s quilt finished by Thanksgiving. Sadly, I must report that I have not met my goal, but I am close! Below is a picture of the quilt all sewn together! I now must start the tedious task of “clipping” all the seams so that when I wash and dry it, they will frey and the reason why it’s called a “rag quilt”. Tonight, I started clipping the seams and it took me about one hour to do 2-1/2 rows and so it will easily be another week before I get this done. But stay tuned for the next update…it will be the finished product!
