    My first rag quilt!

    I finally finished making my first rag quilt last weekend. This is the first of 6 I'm making for each of my grandchildren. I will be finished with my 2nd one this weekend. I also made my own label.

    Lovely quilt...aren't they fun? I have made several for grandkids and family. Hardest for me is all the danged clipping!!
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I so love it! It's so relaxing! I can shut myself off in my sewing room all day and not want to come out as long as I'm sewing. Hubby says next thing he knows, I'll be putting a portable fridge in my sewing room and the only time anyone will see me, is when I need a potty break and at bedtime. lol

    I've made several rag quilts over the past few years and the kids just love them. I started one for myself, but haven't finished it yet. There's always another one to make for someone else! Yours are beautiful and look so cuddley!

    The quilt looks so cuddley, the pastel colors makes it look like you want to snuggle with it.

    Thank you all for the compliments!
    I think I want to stick to making rag quilts only, as I am a beginner and hopefully I will work my way up to other types of quilts. For now though, this is where I feel the most comfortable at. I just finished adding the last row to my 2nd rag quilt and will start snipping the edges tomorrow. It's totally different from my first, will post pics of it soon.

    Again ty all

    nice job...kids love them
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:
