Thank you for your reply. To answer your question about the flowers; I made each one with sheer ribbon, some pink and some mint green. It was a little time consuming; however I love the end result with each one sewed onto the quilts. I think that it gives them a special touch.

Wow I like these a lot! When you do these, what is your seam allowance? More than 1/4 inch? And do you just wash it to get them ravel-ly?

Hello MareMare,
              Thank you for your comment! To answer your questions; I used a 5/8th  seam allowance and I did wash it to get the fray.

Great work!  I'm going to try making a rag quilt this weekend myself.  So it looks like you quilted an X on each square before you started sewing them together?  I was looking at some patters online earlier this week, but dont' recall the couple I looked at mentioning that.  It looks like a good idea though, think I'll do it on mine.

They are very cute. Does the lace stand up to normal washing? Never seen lace.

Hello Shelanie,
           Thank you for your comment. I used a soft lace for these quilts and I have washed them and dryed them twice to get the fray; so I believe yes the lace holds up under normal washings.

I think this is the cutest rag quilt I have ever seen!  I'm usually not a fan, but I love this one!
