    First Rag Quilt

    This is a rag quilt I made for my brother's birthday in March. First rag quilt I have made. I used my GO! cutter rag quilt die and it was a breeze. I plan to make at least three more of these. Sorry the picture is a little blurry; might be because of the rag edges?

    handsome! perfect for a guy ... the black/white/grey is striking. Rag quilts are so much fun to make.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    It is lovely! I don't think I would ever make a rag quilt if I didn't have my Go and the rag die!

    What is a GO and rag dye? Made quite a few rag quilts and have never heard of these methods?, tools?

    Really love the contrast in your fabrics, I think rag quilts are so comfy made with flannel don't you. Your fabrics look sooo soft!

    Thank you.

    WOW. That looks so soft. I want to curl up in it. Don't have the dye. I guess I'll just have to make mine the old fashion way. Good job. BrendaK

    I'm sure your brother is going to really enjoy his quilt! Rag quilts are so much fun to make and love the black, white and a touch of red you chose.

    Hi Rainsprite, the GO! is a cutter machine by Accuquilt that uses 'dies' to cut out shapes in the material. http://www.accuquilt.com/go-shop/go-...ic-cutter.html
