    This is a photo of the front of my king size rag quilt. I used recycled denim jeans for the foundation squares. I decided to put all the rag seams to the back and the outside edges. It weighs 15 lbs.

    It's wonderful--warm too probably! Thanks for sharing. This goes to show you that there is no such thing as non-usable scraps!

    Very pretty, I hope your washing machine is large enough to wash it in.
    I have a book on making string quilts and hope to make one soon.
