I've made a few rag quilts for friends and I've always put batting squares in between the two flannel pieces but this time I used fleece on one side and flannel on the other.  It made for a really cool blanket. Nice and cozy... and I could use some different textures for the baby to explore!


Here's another view ...a long with the super cool tie dye onesies I made the little lady.

So pretty and colourful. Love it, even if I don't like yellow and orange usually.

Beautiful! It looks very cosy  Smiley

Have you just cut the selvages? No finishing? I imagine that would make it really interesting and soft after some use and a few washings.

I think I'll have to do one for myself sometime  Grin

Yup, just snip the selvage and wash.  Sometimes I think that all the snipping takes just as long as binding, but...you can do it while watching TV or sitting in bed which is the best! It turns out super soft and the opposite side is just like a regular quilt. Since I make a lot of these for baby gifts, I figure the baby has a choice to feel the cool textures or have a smooth blanket depending on which side is up.

i'm really impressed by your color choices...in a world that insists that all females be smothered in some shade of pink...you showed us just how beautiful alternative color choices can be. 

thanks for sharing!

I love the colors you chose.  I can just imagine how squishy and soft it is.

Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

Oooo, that's so nice!  I just made a flannel quilt for my soon-to-be born baby boy, and I wish I would have seen this idea first!
