Finished my rag quilt!  It was really nice not have to tie/bind it, but I don't think I will ever do one of these again.  I also found a great pillowcase tut online so made one to coordinate.

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful!  Smiley Rag quilts are my favorite. Just the comfy warm feel of them really appeal to me.

Wow. I think that is the neatest thing I have ever seen. I made a blue jean quilt years ago. Very warm. No lining required. Yours looks really special. Mine had larger panels. I can't imagine all the cutting and sewing you had to do. Very beautiful. Great Job  Grin


Whoops...they are very heavy. Imagine 12 pair of jeans around your body. If you wish to line them? Go with a lightweight fleece. And just tie the corners of the squares. All the threading adds more weight. My squares were 10" x 10"...hers look more like 4s, maybe 6. Lots of cutting. Buy good scissors  Cheesy

inspirational!! I've got a bunch of denim and flannel that I have mostly cut up that will turn into one of these.  I love seeing one finished..   It looks so cozy!
