Rag rug progress

I'm coming along nicely with the rag rug I started a couple of weeks ago.  It's easy enough to do, although it does get tiresome for arthritis-y hands.  I'm getting better control of the tension and making neater turns at the ends of the rows as I go along.

I'm using a stripped-down bed sheet as the foundation strand, and then random fabric strips at least 18" or so long as the working strand.  This is using a LOT of fabric -- I'll probably be well over twelve yards by the time I'm done, and then I also want to do a once-around border, so more than that actually.

I'm hoping to have this finished in time for show-and-tell at my August guild meeting.  Meanwhile, I'm counting the project as my July NewFo and also my July Let's Book It.

Tile Quilt progress

Another block done for my Halloween tile quilt

Once all nine blocks are appliqued and joined together, I might jazz things up with some embroidery and embellishment.
