It was a rag quilt theme for this past Christmas... at least for the gifts I made. I already posted on the NFL themed ones I made, but I also made one for my younger brother (blue and green themed, which I apparently did not photograph grrr!!!), my sister in law, and myself.
I used flannel for all my rag quilts, and I am thinking about experimenting with quilters cotton for a rag quilt. Cause the beauty of rag quilts is that you don't have to bind the edges (which I stink like a dead fish at).
I don't know my sister in law very well, but I do know two things about her: she loves cats and the color pink. So when I found pink flannel with cats on them, I knew that was the one for her. Plus she is ALWAYS cold. Even in SoCal, where they live.
Here is hers:
Now, I was making all these rag quilts and I decided I wanted one of my own. So I chose two flannels in two of my top ten favorite colors (tealy-blue and chocolate brown) with graphics I loved (music notes and hearts) and made my own wonkily designed rag quilt:
C&C always welcome.
Also, I would like to know what all of you Craftsters think about making a queen sized rag quilt/comforter from regular quilters cotton using flannel as the batting? I love the quilts that are lighter (weight wise) and I also love the cozy look that ragging produces. Do you think it would be a feasible?
