First time poster, yay!

I have a confession to make: Although I am in the learning process for "real" quilts, rag quilts lay nearest and dearest to my heart. They are cute, homey, and (to me) simpler. So I had to make a queen size quilt out of some random fabrics I had lying around. And here are the pictures of it.

Close up of squares:

and other views:

Most of the fabrics I used were $1/ yd clearance fabrics from Wal-Mart, but it made one awesome Quilt for me.

p.s. The back is a complete mash-up of random scraps I have accumulated over the past 5 years. Seriously, it's polka dots mixed in with teddy bears mixed in with solids. No one is going to see the back anyway, so why photograph it? lol

Rag quilts really rock!  Cheesy  They give that downhome, comfy feeling.  You did an awesome job on it!

Rag quilts rock!!  I make them all the time.   Have you ever thought about using the same method for other items...tote bags...throw pillows...car seat covers...etc...?

That looks lovely, and I must admit... you've made me curious to see the back!  Wink

Will do personal swaps, just ask!

I didn't know what a rag quilt was, so I looked it up before responding to your post. I gotta say I'm intrigued! That blanket looks super fluffy and cozy. I might have to make one for myself Smiley
