    I've never ragged an entire quilt in one day, but there's a first for everything. :wink:

    Here's Caley and Justin's wedding quilt (Sept 13th) and a wall hanging to celebrate their new home. Caley is a horse nut (like me), but doesn't have a horse now. I thought this might help to fill the hole in her heart until she gets a real one. :D

    Wall hanging. I've had it done for a month, but sewed the hanging sleeve on today.

    Love the wall hanging, and she will also. I have to do a rag quilt some time. They look so comfy. You did that in one day :shock: You amaze me. My friend says she could never do the rag look because she is too much of a perfectionist and would only be able to look at the back side. :lol:

    Both your quilts are stunning!! The colors in your ragged quilt are awesome and beautiful. It truly gives the 'feel' of autumn! I love it!! Did you do the machine quilting on your wallhanging? If so, you did a great job! Congrats on a job well done.

    Tari--oh no--I just ragged it in one day--I didn't make it in one day. I've had the squares cut for months, then the batting, then finally quilted them between craft sale items. I posted the lay out a while ago--and I finished sewing the squares together Friday night. Then I ragged it in one direction yesterday morning. Then after we bought kayaks, I ragged the other half last night. Then I wet and dried it this morning. Phew! :D

    Dorothy--I DID do the quilting on the wall hanging! I'm so proud of it. 8) Thanks!

    OMG Karla--that is beautiful! I want to come and crawl under it. I have never made a rag quilt but after seeing yours, I WANT IT!! :D

    I think she'll adore the wall hanging too.

    The are both beautiful Karla, I love the autumn fabrics, I bet your hands are sore after all that snipping, are you going to wash it to fluff it all up before you give it to the happy couple??

    Tigerbaby--I found all of those flannels at a Mennonite shop near me. I only have some of two left--the small leaves is called Autumn Leaves by northcott, and the darkest green is called Christmas something.. by Thimbleberry.

    Tari--my grandmother always liked the back of these best too. :lol:

    quiltwoman--I first saw one of these on the back of a chair at my quilter's house. After feeling how soft and cozy it was I knew I HAD to make one. I've made... hmm..let me count... at least 12 now--mostly to give away. I have the first one I made for myself--my practice one.

    Izy--surprisingly my hand wasn't sore at all. I remember the first one I ragged--I could do only 2 rows before I had to take a break. I don't know what made the difference. Maybe the scissors?

    Also--rather than wash the whole thing, I spray both sides well with water and put it in the dryer to get it to rag. I already did it--before I took the photo. It will rag more with each washing.

    salisaquilter--I wrote out the measurements for the one I do (there are a myriad of options) and saved it, so I can send it to you when you reach this project, if you wish. :D

    Love the fabrics in your rag quilt--makes me wish it would get colder soon (I'm in California, so that probably won't happen!) Your quilting on the barn quilt is super!

    Did you hear me gasp? Boy those are so pretty!

    How the heck did you rag one side and not the other?
