    My *Crazy Colorful* Rag Quilt

    Here is a few pics of the queen rag quilt I finished a few weeks ago .... it is the perfect weight for summer

    I bought 1/2 yards and fat quarters at many, many, different places .... I'm an *equal opportunity* shopper!!

    And I had to put in the pix of our Ollie too ... he is just soooo sound asleep on this quilt.

    It's beautiful and the pillows really bring out the colors in the quilt.

    LOVE IT! I was just about to start one - my first rag quilt. Yours is amazing.
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    Thanks everyone!!! This is the second rag quilt I made (the first for my newborn granddaughter). They are such fun to make ~ quick too!!!

    As for Ollie ... he is not only cute, he is such a character!!! He likes to go for car rides, gets up on the neighbor's roof, visits everyone and is soooo nosy!!! We have had him three years and love him to death!!!

    And, if you've not made a rag quilt yet ... please do ..... as they are so easy and FUN!!!

    rcrisson .... I cut the squares 9 inches and the batting 7 1/2 inches. And for a queen quilt, I used 132 squares .... 11 across and 12 down. The hardest part, for me, for trying to get the colors right, where they wouldn't be all grouped together ... I finally laid them all out on the floor, stacked them and numbered each row.

    They are FUN and EASY

    Missus ... to get the fuzzy edges, you sew wrong sides together (on the front of the quilt), so all seam allowances are towards the front. The back of this quilt (off white Kona), looks finished.

    After it's all sewn together, you clip down to the seam line and then wash/dry it (preferably at the laundromat); and each washing rags up a bit more. This had only been washed one time.

    But I am thrilled to have it on my bed .... it is just a nice weight for summer
