    I wanted my last rag quilt's ragged edges to be less raggy and more chenilly. So I took a pet comb with the narrow teeth and combed the ragged edges. It was so soft when it was done. I used X's and O's as theh "qulting" on that one, since it was for a baby.

    I love making rag quilts. They are easy to do and quick and when you are through it is done, no binding or finishing. I like to do all flannel or at least flannel on the back and do nothing in the middle, just a front and back layer.

    I really love the colors you choose. Browns & blues are very popular now. You did a Super job!! Be sure to suggest to the one who get it, to wash it the first time in a laundromat huge washer & dryer. Otherwise the loose threads may clog up her dryer vents :-)

    I have made several of these also, and love it. Most have been out of homespun fabric. I pick them up at thrift stores. Homespun fabric is usually men's shirts where the printing is on both sides of the fabric. Cost is usually $1.00 per shirt, then cut it up. A great gift for a man.

    Great, another rag quilt fan! I love making them for kids, because they can USE them without fearing ruining them. Such a good way to use up our scraps too. Welcome to my club! :D
    This is a very pretty one!

    Your rag time is beautiful, I made lots of them and now branched off to make pieced quilts and I sure do love to do the pieced ones. I have tired to post a picture of the one I just finished but now sure if I knew what I was doing....It is a picture of my fence rail if you see it let me know
    thanks

    Love your colors. I too love rag quilts and have made about 10 of them. I alternate 10" squares with a 4 patch 0f 5" squares.
