I just finished my first rag quilt. It is a Christmas gift for my MIL. I was pleased with the way it turned out. Very easy to make. I think that I might make several of these for Christmas gifts. The worst part of this quilt is cutting all the little snips. I still don't have all of the lint removed but I wanted to share it with you all

I agree that the snipping is the worse part. I purchased a pair of rag quilt scissors by Fishkars which helped a lot! They are spring loaded. Cost around $20.00, but well worth it! Barb

Thanks. I used cotton for the front and back and flannel for the inside. I cut all three squares the same size. I used a 7 in sq and 1/2 in seam. They go together really quick. It takes longer to snip the seams than anything else.
