2015 January ~ Rag Quilt for Baby Hunter

I have been a little behind with my sewing as a few of my closest friends know and when a baby is born in the family, what better excuse do I need to make something right?  I decided another rag quilt was in order but with lots of fun colors and it was going to be made with flannels so it would be super soft since for a baby.  I washed it with a Color Catcher and dried it twice before gifting it to him to get the fluffiness to start and to collect a bunch of loose strings.

So Hunter is now 5 1/2 months old and he is growing up on the west coast with an awesome set of parents who are going to teach him all the fun and exciting things that he can possibly do outside like fishing, horse back riding and jetskiing.  His daddy even made the crib and changing table they use for him everyday.  This little guy (ok, not so little) will have such a loving upbringing with the fabulous parents he has!  His mom Jenn even took some pics with him on the rag quilt and said I could post them here to share on my site!

Here is a link to the first rag quilt I did back in May.  Also if interested I used Aurifil thread throughout for the piecing and the quilting, you can find some here on Amazon.
