Here is Jack's rag quilt. it is my second quilt ever! (definitely not my last!) I made this yesterday in about 6 ish hours.  The squares are quilted with an X in the middle and each of the triangles has a different quilted design on it that represents a different aspect of my cat! (that was fun!).....I like to think she likes it! She slept on it last night with no complaints!  Wink
here it is before washing:

and the center block before and after washing to show the difference:

my favorite pinwheel to show the quilting of it: (that's a paw, cat face, mouse, and fish bones)

and last but not least, her action shot! (she's a bit shy  Wink)

this shows the size  (about 30"x30") i had so much fun making this for her and quilting all the different triangles! comments and criticisms welcomed!

thank you so much! i did mine with two layers of cotton, and one layer of batting in between that was 1/2" smaller all around so it wouldn't show when i sewed them together...i did clip all my seams, including the outermost edging...BUT i must warn you that although the clipping looks so much nicer because it unravels faster, you must be VERY careful not to clip the stitching! i ended up with 4 huge! holes in it after it came out of the wash because i clipped the stitiching!! (and it was a PITA to sew back together!!)  good luck with yours i would love to see pics when you're done?!?!?  Grin
