    I bought these 4 flannel fabrics this afternoon. I thought I had picked two sets, that go together. I had planned to do the top two together and the bottom two together. Now, after looking at them again, I'm not so sure. What do you all think?

    I think they will make a great quilt. Did you think about switching the polka dot fabric with the pink and white? Just a thought.

    Together? In one quilt?

    Something else I wondered about...does anybody make it the same on both sides, both sides with frayed edges? Rather than the frayed edges on 1 side and the 'normal' sewed edge on the other?

    To be honest, when I made my first rag quilt, I just used left over flannel, didn't give any thought to what did or did not go together, randomly sewed the blocks together, and it turned out great!

    You've done a much better job of matching than I did so yours will be super great!!

    I have never made a rag quilt, so I can't speak from experience, but I would think it would actually be easier to have the one finished side and the one rag side... but I could be wrong. I do like the fabrics though! I would be tempted to do a mixture of all 4 on both top and bottom, but that's mainly b/c I really like the polka dot one ;)

    I also thought about that. Either way they are great fabrics.

    They'll be fine! Once you sew and cut and the fringe flies, it'll be a beautiful quilt!

    All very cute fabrics! I've only made one rag quilt and did it with one print on back and patchwork on front, rag only on front. I just bought some more flannel today to make another one, not sure yet how I'm gonna do it.
