Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Very lovely rag quilt. You will enjoy it for sure. I made a lap size rag quilt last fall and I love it! It has kepted me warm all winter! Da, I never thought of putting a border around it. I really should get busy and make another one!
Welcome back to quilting. Your rag quilt looks great!

It's beautiful. I, too, love the look of the traditional rag quilt with a twist.

Love your rag quilt - you're right, taking the 'ragging' out to the borders and including those really makes a difference in how the finished quilt 'feels'.....very nice! I'm going to borrow your idea when I make mine -- thanks!!

I think this is the nicest rag quilt I've seen. I really like the design -- those 2 borders are really cool -- and the color choices. Great job!
Thanks for the compliments everyone! I went to read the paper on the couch this morning....and my quilt was gone. My 17 year old son was using it last night and my hubby said the quilt migrated to the basement with my son last night when he went down there to watch TV. I will have to work to get it back, but at least it's nice that my teen son appreciates my quilts. Guess I need to make myself another one, maybe with flowers so it's less likely to be "borrowed"!
