    Super quilt..I have not done a rag quilt yet but will certainly keep this one in mind. It will be really cozy after being washed and I have great liking for the 30's reproductions.

    I haven't made one yet but, looks good to me. Make sure you quilt a line through both ways of each square. Clip it and you are finished. Nice colors.

    Looks great! I always double seam around the quilt in case I snip too close. If the store has them get Heritage rag scissors. They are the most comfortable to use.
    Got fabric?

    Your quilt looks great and no one would ever think of it as a "seat of your pants" quilt. I don't have the rag scissors yet either, but I have read that they make the snipping go a lot quicker and easier on your fingers.
