    I finally made me a raggy quilt. It is made from blocks I had left over when I made my grandson's girlfriend a quilt a couple years ago....I didn't take the time to figures out how much fabric to buy when I was out shopping. I'm glad I bought so much otherwise I probably never would of made one for myself.
    It sure is warm!

    I did this on the diagonal to stretch the size a bit since I didn't have that many squares. I really needed a couple more rows on it for my queen bed. I've been using it anyway these cold night, but underneath another quilt..that works.

    That is very pretty. Some years ago I made a baby raggy quilt. After I did all the snipping and washing it looked used so I was reticent to give it as a gift.

    I really like the colors of yours. SC

    That is a beautiful quilt! I haven't ventured into rag territory yet, but you may have just given me the inspiration to do so :)

    I really need to get off this computer and go and make a rag quilt. I've seen many on this forum and love them. Are they as easy as they say they are? Love your colours.

    Outstanding!!!! Are those all flannels? Did you have "peels" the little fuzzies all over after washing it and if so how did you remove them?

    The fabrics used in this one is flannels and cotton plus the bright green blocks are home spun. Didn't have any fuzzies, the flannels were good heavy weight flannel. Lots of threads & lint in washer and dryer though and on the floor!
    When I made Jennies quilt I matched fabric backs to fronts, in this one, I had lots of some fabrics and not many of others, so make this one with flannel on one side and cotton/homespun on the others, with no restriction which were on the raggy side.

    I washed my raggy quilts a couple times. After the washer stops, I take the quilt out side and shake it hard to get the "crap" off. The start again, I let them get to the spin cycle and restart the washer. After going through all those cycles they are soft and cuddly.
