What materials did you use? Flannel Fabric in black, white & red quilt batting. Great way to use scrap material.

What are you most proud of? It takes a great deal of patience to do all the cutting!

BobbiSpain on craftsy.com

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan out your blocks to get the best design. The most efficient way to make this quilt is to do it assembly-line style. Do all the cutting at once, chain-piece the blocks, and take your time cutting the ragged edge.

How do I get the pattern?

I don't really have a pattern...I kind of wing it when I create quilts! This one is easy to explain...I cut all of the blocks in 8" squares. You will need two squares of fabric for each block. Then I cut batting for each block at 6". Sandwich the batting between two fabric blocks. Sew an X in the center of the block, keeping everything in place. Next, place your blocks in a row, and sew them together using a 3/4" seam allowance...keeping all of the seam allowance on the FRONT side of the block. After all the rows are sewn across, then sew the rows together...again keeping all the seam allowance toward the front! When it is all put together, get out your shears (there are special ragging shears you can buy, and start snipping! This is the most time consuming part! You want to snip all the seam allowances about 1/2 inch apart...more if you can...the more snips, the raggier the quilt! When you wash the quilt, and then put it in the dryer, the magic happens, the raw edges fluff
