    This is my very first attempt at a rag quilt. It will be for my newest grand daughter Madison Rae.

    I really enjoyed making this, it's a thrill to see the finished product.

    My next project is another crib size quilt for Madison, I just need to figure out a simple yet great looking block.
    I think I like the attic window block. any suggestions for an easy second quilt?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for all the wonderful compliments.
    I fringed it at about 1/2 in spaces.

    It was really easy to put together, so forgiving if the intersections don't quite match up.

    I've thought about D9P, it looks like that would be an easy next quilt for me.

    Thanks again for the encouragement!

    Adorable rag quilt! And I'll cast my vote for the D9P as well...I made my first D9P squares for the batik swap and that's my new favorite block!

    Awesome, Our Guild recently did these. We did a log cabin, using a 6 inch center square and 4 inch strips, with 3 strips on each side of the center square. The Blocks were 24" so you only needed 4 for a nice sze throw. It was lots of fun to do!

    ohhh!! that sounds really interesting for a rag quilt. I'll have to search for some pictures of that. Might need to try that one myself.
    Thanks!

    That looks great, and the fringe is fraying nicely!
