Wagga 60 x 72"
I've admired the Australian Waggas for a long time.
So, with Making Quilts...the Promise of Joy in hand, it was time to make my own!
Kathy Doughty shows her beautiful Wagga in the book, made with wool suitings and heavy cottons.
Keeping with the "thrifty" nature of these quilts, I used only five fabrics.
The red and camel plaids are wool blend scraps.
The center panel is an old pillow cover made of heavy upholstery cotton.
The blue plaid is cotton flannel. The floral patches are cut from an old linen tablecloth.
It's kind of an ugly duckling, but I like it.
Just right for sending with my man when he goes out to the bush.
This will get wool batting, a flannel back and lots of perle cotton.
Wishing you all good health, great inspiration and lots of time to create in 2013!
