    ragged flannel #16!!!

    This one is for my daughter's boyfriend's mom. She and I have met once--will be getting together on Rachel's birthday this month and have grown close through our emails. She is the most lovely person! Rachel said months ago that we would get along well. This new friend and her husband adore my daughter as we adore her son.

    As with everyone, there are a few challenges in her life--and since some of what she's experiecing is similar to challenges I'm having, she's helped me tremendously. I thought a flannel quilt might serve once again as a hug-to-go. Yellow is her favorite color, but I couldn't find a nice flannel one with calming coordinating fabrics, so I went with low contrast for the front--and added the sunshine to the back. I told her I partially framed the sunshine--so it's captured for when she needs warming up. :-)

    All my kids are coming this afternoon--and Rachel made plans to have lunch with her bf's mom tomorrow to deliver this quilt! Having Rachel give it to her is the next best thing to being there. It will be a total surprise!

    Wow, it's hard to decide which side I like better. This is wonderful, completely reversible. I'm happy for your family that it's meshed so well.

    I have never made a rag quilt but yours makes me want to try. I looks like a good Sunday afternoon nap quilt.

    So pretty and cozy! What size are your squares? cut size and finished size? And what size are your seam allowances? Also. how many times did you wash it to rag the edges? Thanks.

    Thanks! Thanks everyone!
    I cut blocks at 7"--batting at 5.75". Seam allowance is 1/2" so finished block is 6". I washed it once--I shake it outside a few times during drying and empty the lint fliter several times. The more you wash it the more it rags. :-)

    What a wonderful start to a long standing friendship. It's heartwarming and wonderful when two families merge and are so compatable.

    Here's what she said: "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY THE QUILT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND CUDDLY AND IT CAME FROM YOU AND IT IS SOOO SWEET AND WONDERFUL. I did cry and I am still teary thinking about it. I cant wait to crawl under it tonight. I feel warmer already! Off to work again but I have dreams of a beautiful yellow flannel quilt to warm me."

    Happy sigh.
