Combine chenille with rag quilting to build a name one square at a time. Double the size of the letters and numbers for the 7" blocks shown. Use all of the letters and numbers for a lap size quilt, or use as appliques in other projects.
Annis Clapp has had a passion for sewing since she was a child, and has been designing and making quilts and related items since the mid '70s. While making her son's wedding quilt in 1998-99 she became interested in quick piecing techniques. The discovery of rag quilting in 2001 led to 3 quilt books published by Leisure Arts. She has had quilts featured in McCall's Quick Quilts and Ricky Tims' Kool Kaleidoscope Quilts. Her desire for speed and accuracy in her piecing skills led to the development of the Ultimate Seam Guide in 2003 which is now available through C & T Publishing.
