    First Rag Quilt

    My gand daughter's birthday is coming up and her Birthday Theme is U of A. So, I put a rag quilt together for her. I'm a new at quilting and this is my first rag quilt. I used flannel and the finishing product takes a lot of work, cleaning the lint off, is there a technic for it? I used a Navajo rug like design, this design reminds me of my mother's rug design. I'm a Navajo Indian and I want to incorporate our Native designs in my quilting. Top designName:  U of A rag quilt.jpg

    Great job.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Great job....yes, lint is a problem. I line dry and go over the quilt with the crevice tool on my vaccuum.

    Be sure to clean your dryer very well, lint can cause a fire.

    It is beautiful, she will love it.
