    These are both so cute! My best friend wants me to make a set of rag quilt placemats and a matching runner. I'm just kinda leery of the rag quilting, so I haven't taken it on. It looks like yours turned out great though!

    They are both very cute. That is how I started quilting 5 years ago. I must have made a dozen rag quilts, then I started regular quilting and am addicted There are so many avenues you can take with quilting. Just reading this board everyday inspires me to take this passion in new directions. Love your quilts and hope you continue to explore the world of quilting.

    I can just imagine your two year old grandson cuddling up in his quilt. He'll love it!
