    Here's some pics of a rag quilt that I made at a quilt retreat this weekend. It's made from homespun cloths and measures 48" x 60". Each block has a square of cotton batting in it, so it is nice and warm. The backing all have that red checked fabric except for each corner which have those blue squares. Why? -- because I ran out of the red checked fabric, was just a little short! :D

    I never thought of making one with homespun. Good idea. It certainly does look cozy!

    I was thinking of using homespun on the back of a quilt that I am making out of HST's. That would suit the personality of the person receiving the quilt. I like the idea of the plaid. My other thought was to use plaid shirting. Any thoughts? Quilt not completed yet but will post a pic when it is.

    I think either one would look great. I really like the look of plaids and homespuns for their homey, comfy look.

    Love your quilt. It looks cozy to snuggle up with.

    Question: did you strip-sew for the top and then cut the squares? I have a stack of homespun FQ's that I've been saving to do a rag quilt and love the way you striped your top squares. Gives me a NEW idea for mine. What size are your squares?
