    Now all I have to do is finish cutting some stray threads and sew the label on. The poor guy has been waiting for this a while. Though it does have his favorite things pictured on it...basketball, skateboarding and money:>

    I used flannel and it was somewhat quick to do in that I have a Accuquilt Studio, so the cutting out was a breeze. I added 6" batting squares between the 8 1/2" blocks. So, it's heavy. This is my second rag quilt in a row and I think I'm ragged out. It can be a bit tricky keeping all the layers together smoothly, matching seams and keeping the frayed ends out of the seams, all at the same time.

    Looks Great, I am curious, how did you handle the seams? I am working on one and I stopp at each seam, back up a stitch or two, jump over the seam, back up a stitch or two, then on to the next seam. That keeps the seams from getting sewed down. It is quite laborious and i wonder if there is an easier way.

    I don't understand. My seams are all sewn down. I also use a 1" seam allowance with this rag die.
