I made this ragged quilt for one of my friends' twins, a little boy named Maxwell.  My friend loves Disney stuff-- and she loved this quilt.  I hope that Max drags it around for a while.  Smiley

I used two different Mickey flannels and two different tones of denim.  On the dark denim squares, I drew in and quilted a "mickey head" pattern.

You can see the chevron pattern here.

oh wow!  This turned out great!  I love the way you designed this.  The mickey heads is a neat touch.   I like the idea that it is not all denim.  I made one that was denim on the front and flannel on the back and that sucker is heavy.  Warm, but heavy.  What did you put on the back?

I made each block by sandwiching two pieces of the same fabric with batting in between and then quilting each block separately before sewing them all together.  Each block is the same front and back, so it looks exactly the same on either side, except one side has ragged edges and the other side is smooth.

Hey very nice! I am about 1/3 of the way done with my own raggedy quilt, maybe I will dig that out of my UnFinished Objects (UFO) pile!

It's Fantastic! I like the idea of the raggedgy quilt being dragged from room to room, great job.
