    Very nice.
    I have only made 2 rag quilts, both flannel.
    I recently had surgery and my flannel rag quilt is the one that I am keeping covered with all day cause it is warmer than my others and I am cold all the time right now!!!

    Are rag quilts like this machine washable? I'd be afriad the fuzzies would ravel and tangle together.

    Any of the raggedy projects I've made must be washed and dried to get that nice raggedy look going.

    It's pretty! I'm working on two now. I wash them in the machine, OR sometimes I spray the front good and pop it into the dryer and the effect is the same. There is nothing cozier.

    It looks like a giant took this picture. :lol:

    Love your rag quilt. I have never made one, it is far down on my to do list - maybe I will have to move it up!

    Very nice. I made one of my grand daughters one - but she insists the raggy side is the wrong side. :lol:

    I have made a couple of baby rag quilts and I read about putting them into a pillow case (mine were small enough) when they were in the machine so all the little bits didn't clog up the machine. You could make a calico bag for a bigger quilt.
    I really like the darker colour that comes through on the seams of your quilt. Fabulous choices you made.

    Very pretty colors..I'm working on one for hubby now with deer and bear and elk on it. He keeps saying are you going to go work on my quilt. He goes to dialysis and gets really cold. So he wants to take it there

    I love your rag guilt! So cool and I have made one so far from a kit.

    I need to find directions to make one from buying my own fabric.

    I love making rag quilts and my family seems to love them. Yes, they wash again and again.....and look more raggedy each time. They are so warm.
