A few shaggies…



I am thinking of making another one of these….Shaggy Quilt…I made this a couple of years ago for a gorgeous young lady who I worked with, miss her heaps, but we do stay in touch…..they are just so simple but so appealing…


Another blast form the past…..A shaggy bag made for a friend who was having a baby….

Oh look…. another one…

Have a great day….

Take care Peg…:>)


  1. Hi Peg,
    Yeah, I also like the look of these shaggy quilts and bags.
    I've only made a couple in the past.
    The thing I don't like about them-is all that cutting, I do get sore hands.

  2. Love these quilts but have never made one. Maybe this year.

  3. I have always wanted to make one of these! Yours are fantastic!

  4. yours look great, lovely colours!
    I made two small ones last year, one was an xmas pressie for my mum and the other one, the cat sleeps on it at night! (pics on blog - oct 09 and dec 09)

  5. Fair Girl said last night she wants to make one of those quilts like Peg the ones you chop all up......chop chop

  6. I have made these for every (close) member of my family and continue to make them for donation quilts (mostly baby sized). I LOVE making quick and easy!

  7. Love tham all especially the colurs in the first one..
    Really love the borders on the shaggy, it finishes it off really well..

  8. What a lovely selection of shaggies you have made, such a versatile technique. Love the cosy feel of a shaggy quilt.

  9. Thanks, Peg for your border inspiration - I've said it before, I know - love it and I hope to get the last two on my fairy quilt soon - there's so much I want to do!

  10. I have always loved those shaggy quilts. They are so cozy and comfy! I love the fabrics on all of yours. They look so whimsical!

  11. Those are so pretty, Peg - and I'm very thankful to Chookyblue to having you set up a blog! I've made a few of the shaggy quilts myself - but one I forgot to clip before I washed it and BOY did it come out a mess!

  12. Love them all Peg.... I've got flannels here at the moment that I should make into a shaggy.

  13. I love these shaggy quilts have you seen any tutorials ?

  14. Oooo absolutely love those quilts the colours go so well together. Musttry making one. Thank you for sharing :o)

  16. I have yet to try making a shaggy quilt... it is still on my to do list... I love the ones you have made..

  17. Gotta love the 'shaggy' quilts! They all look fantastic... havent seen some of those older ranges for so long! The only thing with these quilts, it is very messy!

  18. Luv your shaggy quilts Peg. I'm a huge fan of the patchwork squares sewn together...think thats what got me into craft initially!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment, I do enjoy reading them all...take care, keep safe, happy quilting .. Peg
