    I was afraid to post these because I thought they would not be well received as they are not "real" Quilts. I have seen others posted recently and decided to share the ones I've made. These sparked my interest in learning to quilt. I have really learned a lot since I started making them.

    a quilt is a quilt is a quilt!! Well in my opinion anyway. Doesn't matter if it is hand sewn, machine or rag... Nice job

    Rag quilts are real quilts! There are dozens of folks on here who make and love rag quilts.

    Yours are lovely. Don't be afraid to show your projects. The quilt police is not on the board!

    I agree. I don't believe in the quilt police.

    Love your rag quilts.

    I love rag quilts, I have made them for all my grandchildren and great grandchildren, and they all love them. My little ones take them everywhere. I even made one for my 45 year old son because he was using my grandsons when watching TV. Yours are beautiful.

    Who says they aren't real quilts? Don't tell my 5yr old grandson that; he loves his. If the only thing in life I have to worry about it the quilt police; I say bring it on. Do what you like; do what makes you happy and if someone else doesn't like it; tell them not to look and you'll take their name off of your list of people to make quilts for.

    I think they are real quilts. I don't know where that idea ever got started about real quilts or not real quilts. Our ancestors made more utility type quilts than they ever did the "artsy" type. They were a necessity to keep their families warm. Your quilts are lovely and keep up the good work. Don't let anyone tell you what is real and what is not. If you enjoy doing them then go for it.

    To me a quilt is something with duel function.......both to snuggle with and for warmth.......looks like these can do both!!! I, too sparked my passion with rag quilts.......

    GREAT JOB!!!

    Beautiful, they look like real quilts to me. Be proud of the great job you did on these rag quilts. For me, if you use fabrics, cut them into shapes and dew them together, then they are real quilts, just what you did. I want to try these if and when I get time.
