    Very pretty-love the layout!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    It really is. I made so many rag quilts when I first began quilting, think it's time to make a few more and maybe copy your very nice design. May in Jersey

    It's just lovely -- and grouping the colors together that way on the front really added to the quilt!

    It's very pretty, the pink and blue/green work so well together. What a lucky DD

    That's a very pretty rag quilt. I usually make my batting squares 8" and flannel squares 10". So this is a refreshing change seeing so many squares of color in what is relatively the same size that I usually make. What usually takes the longest is the snipping. If you have a pair of rag quilt snips it goes by quicker and less painfully! If not, and you plan on ever making another, get at least one pair. The secret is to pay attention to where you're snipping, and if you ever snip through the seam, fix it immediately.

    I'm sure your dd will love it! It will surely keep her warm for many years. We have a few in the family room and cuddle up with them as needed. Keep in mind that they usually shed for a while and empty the dryer lint trap often (every 5 minutes) when drying the first bunch of times.

    What size are your blocks? Batting 5 1/2" and material 7 1/2"? If you have the time, please pm me with that information. Thanks.
    Go forth and sew!
