This is my first time posting in the quilting section, yay! I've been waiting for this day Smiley

I made this rag quilt for my boyfriend for Valentines Day. We live in Canada and he doesn't like to turn his heat on in his apartment in the winter (crazy, I know) so I decided he needed something to keep him warm. I love the look of rag quilts, and I've been collecting different Spiderman fabrics for a few months wanting to make something for the bf (who is crazy about Spiderman) but not quite sure what. I decided to make a rag quilt and while shopping online for some discount plain flannel for the back of the quilt, I stumbled across Spiderman printed flannel for $1.15 CDN a yard!! Because it was so cheap I got 12 yards and doubled it up to make the quilt extra warm. It's four layers, one of cotton, one of batting and two of the flannel. I'm not sure of the size, I just made it as big as I could with the fabric that I had. The present was a hit and it's SO warm it's unbelievable! Onto pictures...


Here it is post-ragging -- it didn't get ruined, yay! It's on a queen bed, for size reference.

A close up of the fabrics I used..

The flannel! I tried to line the squares up in the back so that it would look alright. It's not great, but you get the idea. Also, I didn't realize until after that just the method I was using to cut it and then double it up made it so I only had squares with Spiderman on it... the fabric also features his hand slinging web. I did get one square of that flannel in, but that's it.

One more for good measure!

Thanks for looking! As always, advice/tips/comments/criticisms are appreciated!

I clicked on this with my son beside me, and he is mesmerized.  I may have to make a spiderman quilt now.  Yours is very good.
