I fell in love this "Just Keep Swimming" shredded Rag Quilt Pattern when I created it as a custom order for my dear friend! Depending on which fabric pattern you use it works well as a baby's wall-hanging, as a child's size throw, or add extra rows for a Beach House throw to cuddle up on the couch! The pattern stays adorable no matter how big you make it! This quilt is pieced, quilted and backed in only a few steps! No ironing necessary! No batting or backing to buy or add! No border or mitered corners to add! No critical "points" to match! No fussy seam allowances, 1/2 inch throughout! (Leave that "scant" 1/4" behind for this quilt)! No critical stitching of the appliques! Close is ok, you're going to clip and shred them! Try new shapes or use "scrappy" colors from your stash! Shredding is a huge stress buster! A little "wonky" might even help this "shabby chic'ish" quilt, it was created to have a soft and relaxed finish. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should be able to use a straight stitch sewing machine and rotary cutting tools safely SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 42 X 49 and bigger

Greetings! PLEASE NOTE that I am having a great deal of difficulty communicating with my crafty friends with the new changes on the Craftsy website! There are several comments and questions I can not answer because of "broken links" on the sight! VERY frustrating! I am so excited to have this opportunity to share new and innovative ideas via my patterns with those phenomenally creative people out there who, like me create because they have to! I have always been one to push the envelope with my creations and I hope I can bring out that side of you too! Questions and comments are always welcome! With Kindest Regards, Sally PLEASE NOTE THAT ONCE A PATTERN IS DOWNLOADED IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE.
