i am going to attempt my first rag quilt, thought i would try for a baby since it would be smaller and give me an idea of how this works. found a pattern on the internet where you could use flannel instead of batting for the middle and then you did not have to make the x - you just have to join the squares. no other quilting except joining the edges. has anyone ever made one like this or do you think it will work? i believe it had a 1/2 inch seam allowance?
