    Well, I can't believe I'll ever get all of the lint off but here it is before washing and after one cycle through the w/d.

    That is adorable. Did you use 3 layers of flannel or 2 of flannel and a piece of batting in the middle?

    It's cute & no..... I don't think rag quilts ever quit shedding threads (at least not in my experience)

    Cute fabric and nice colors :thumbup: As for the lint :( it does finally slow down. The birds love the lint to build nests.

    In another thread, a poster recommended washing and drying the quilt at a commercial laundramat first. All that tiny string lint is rough on the w/d.
