    This is a rag quilt I made with flannel I had tons of and still have tons of lol. I still need to finish cutting it up but have to take breaks as my hand is getting sore and blistered. I will repost pictures when it's been all cut up and washed. Thanks for checking it out :mrgreen:

    Doing a GREAT JOB cutting is the hardest part just do a couple of rows and then take a break you will get it done much faster

    I'm busy cranking out a rag quilt kit to post for sale...pre-fringed. I can't imagine what a pain it must be to do this all by hand! Very cute.

    Do you have the rag quilt spring loaded snips/scissors to clip with? If not , you should check them out because they are much easier on your hands.

    Very pretty! I'm making one right now too. I went to WalMart & bought a pair of the spring loaded snips yesterday for about $10.00. It sure makes the cutting quicker & much easier on your hands.

    Woowhoo my rag quilt is finally done after killing two pairs of scissors, getting blisters on my hands that actually turned blue ( not from the dye in the fabric either). Just needs to be washed and dried. I think it passed inspection though as you can see in the pictures lol.

    Ok I got my rag quilt totally done. I washed it and dried it today and OMG the lint that comes off insane :shock: . Is it normal to have to use a lint roller on the quilt when it comes out of the dryer? I read in another post people suggesting you go to the laundry mat to wash and dry a rag quilt I can so see why now and in the future I will definately be doing that too. I'll post the completed picture when I'm finished delinting lol.

    I always wash my rag quilts at the Laundromat when they are finished, and I always use a lint roller to clean up the loose threads and lint. I have been told Laundromat machines have bigger lint traps and can handle the lint better. I take wet paper towels with me and wipe the washing machine to clean out the lint though, because I don't think it is fair to the next user to have to deal with all all that lint in their laundry.

    You can always vaccuum them - that gets rid of heaps of bits.
