This is the second quilt I have ever made!  I just love it...  I used all of my husband's old button-down shirts.  (The ones that had little holes in them, or tiny unremovable stains, but I couldn't bear to throw them out!)  I even left the pockets on some of the pacthes...you know, for snacks, or something!   Wink





My next quilt is definitely not going to be a rag quilt!  I love them, but my hands hurt from cutting all of that fringe on the last two!!!

Very cute, and a great use of old clothes!

If you can, purchase a pair of spring-loaded scizzors for rag quilts ... definitely easier on the hands!

I agree buy a pair of sring-loaded scissors, I got my from Joann's, they are worth every penny you pay for them.

I made a rag quilt, and after the scissors wore my hands out, I switched to an X-acto blade. I love the finished look, but I might rent time on a die-cutting machine at a quilt shop the next time I make one.
