I heard that this recipe mimics the texture and "sea" flavor really well, so I am putting it out there. (You have to put up with a 22 second intro/ "sponsor us" pitch)

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Floral explosion Rag Quilt on: February 22, 2012 08:41:26 PM
I posted pictures of my first queen size rag quilt on the Craftster forums because I was proud of it and loved the bejesus out of it. (Here it is: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403040.0) But I wan't the only one...

Early in February, my mother decided to "borrow" my favorite quilt (aka take it and not give it back cause she likes it and she wants it so I guess I'm screwed out of a quilt). I loved that quilt so much, that I was willing to spend money I really didn't want to spend to make a rag quilt for my mother so I could get mine back.

So I did. And spent twice as much on my mothers quilt than on my own. But I got mine back and that is whats important in this story.

But I also decided to experiment with her quilt a little. I used old cheap blankets as the batting (I used flannel as batting on mine), doubled the ragging "seam allowance" (from .5 inch to 1 inch), and changed thread tension (from regular to tight). And although I liked the turnout, I still love mine WAY more.

I call her quilt the "Floral Explosion" quilt for two reasons: 1.) All 7 different fabrics are floral themed and 2.) the ragging reminds me of fireworks

Here are pictures of her quilt:

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Country Cozy Queen Size Rag Quilt (First Post) on: January 30, 2012 09:30:40 PM
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.

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

Great idea for a friend who hates anything disposable (her two boys wear cloth diapers).

Baha, I think you just gave me inspiration for a gift for my friend. Except I am going to channel Shaun of the Dead and put a Criquet paddle in.
