My Flannel Rag Quilt


I've have been in love with rag quilts since I first saw this rag quilt that Megan made here..


and then I fell in love with this rag quilt from Northern Cottage
and I went shopping for some flannel material to make my own rag quilt...


I had trouble finding flannel material that wasn't babyish or kiddish...
after I realize that I wouldn't find material to coordinate, I just picked what I liked..
and while I was concerned that it wouldn't look good together..I was so wrong...
let me show you how it turned out and you be the judge...


I followed the directions from Do It Yourself Divas and cut the material....


And got it all put together for sewing...love this project because it's all straight sewing...
and I'm pretty sure anybody can do this...especially if I did this....


This took me longer than someone who sews a lot..but in my defense...
I was watching "The Body Guard" and I love Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston together....
and I stopped sewing more times that not just to watch the movie...


After it was all sewed together, it was time to start making the fringe...
got it all washed and dried...


I didn't bind it because..
well I wasn't sure what binding is...
and I was pretty sure if I tried, I'd ruin the quilt..
so I fringed around the entire edge...


I love how it turned out...
and it's so soft and not super heavy...

Wishing you all a fantastic week!

Terry I LOVE these rag quilts. The colors are so much fun and festive!

How CUTE! I think I like this style better than a traditional quilt! It's like the ruffles help blend the patterns together so there is not such a severe difference between them. Does that make sense?

I love this! I used to buy rag quilts from a lady on ebay. She used a lot of Rachel Ashwell fabrics and stuff and I love them. I love how you finished the edges--the same way the lady I bought from did them. I have used ours for years and they just get better and better! I am inspired to make one myself now--I'll just add it onto my project list!:)
