"Bricks Around the World" Completed January 6, 2009

I finished the frayed edge "Bricks Around The World." It is perfect for a young man. I will be glad when all the lint and frays are gone. What a mess. I also do not think I could have finished it so quickly without the special scissors I bought,"Heritage Cutlery - 6 1/2 inch Rag Quilting Snips."

This quilt is 69" x 72".

I haven't labeled it yet, but I will. With one washing it is already so soft that I wish it was mine.

Here is the front of the quilt:

I used the "Heritage Cutlery" 61/2 inch Rag Quilting Snips to cut the frayed edges. They are spring snips and made for quick cutting (well, probably as quick as you can do on a quilt that size.

I went back and put the name of the scissors in the post.
