    So I accomplished this yesterday in the midst of packing our things to get ready to move. LOL. I have made many many rag purses for customers but had never actually made a rag quilt. So, this is going on the back of our new couch....when we get it..lol.My own housewarming gift. LOL. I also made a small rag pillow to match it, however, my Jack Russel Terrier, Milo, in the picture claimed it. He tried to claim my quilt as you can see in the picture. :D

    Ya gotta love rag quilts! Doable in a short amount of time and leaves you with a great little quilt. I love the colors you used and I adore that little rag pillow. It's cute that Milo claimed it! :P
    Good luck with your move. :)

    Miranda,
    All of my squares are 6 1/2". I actually started with 5 different selections of fabric and ran out and made a mad dash to Wal-Mart and they didn't have ANY of the same kind so I purchased some that was similar. Then, after I finished the quilt that I had planned, I thought it needed a border so then I added that and just barely had enough material to finish it. Whew! LOL.

    Thank you all for all of your nice comments. :D

    Lin,
    Yes this was definitely doable in a short time. I think these will make great Christmas Gifts. lol

    I'm trying to find just the right word here...
    beautiful, yep!
    cozy, uh-huh!
    sweet, okay!
    snuggly, yes!
    I guess there just isn't one word to describe your quilt. Great job, Heather!

    P.S. Milo obviously has great taste!

    Ruth,
    My seams were 1/2". I used flannel as my batting, lol, it was much easier. In using flannel, you can cut it the same size of the square and you don't have to quilt the squares unless you would like to.

    Approximately, how big are the (finished) blocks minus the fringe? (OMG~ I just quilt-cussed)
    My brainstorm was with 4-inch blocks....after fringe/rag, that would be only about 3" or maybe less....
    I think I'm going to have to go up a few inches for my next project.

    Miranda,
    My finished squares are 5 1/2". I used larger squares so I wouldn't have to cut and use so many smaller ones. I think the next one I make, depending on the material I might make the squares just a tad bit bigger. we shall see... :D

    I guess if I could do math, I wouldn't've had to've asked that question... really, my brain doesn't work right anymore.

    Love the new avatar...I saw those sunflowers in that 1/2 whiskey barrell and thought how that would make a great pic! LOL!

    I can't get the picture I want on the avatar, this one keeps coming back up...so it is staying for now. LOL. Yes, I got that planter at Tractor Supply. My sunflowers looked so alive the other day. No matter how much I water them, it has been so hot on them out there they look so bad now. I did get a few pictures though. You should see the one in front of the white fence, it is turned around facing the fence though. We didn't plant it, it happened to fall out of the bird feeder ( I like that kind of planting...lol). :D Don't feel bad, my brain hasn't worked for last couple of years. LOL

    This is exactly what I have in mind for several projects. It looks so soft and snuggly. Love the dog, too. I'm learning so much by just browsing on this site.
