What are you most proud of? Designing these myself and finishing 7 of them before Christmas. I started in JUNE!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? These must be washed to rag them. DO NOT put them in your washing machine at home. Take them to a laundrymat to wash

When do you wash the fabric to make the "rag" seams? After the quilt is all finished? Do you double-stitch the seams to prevent them from raveling out when it's washed?

The whole quilt is put together first. Then you snip into the part of the seams you want to rag, so you would go along each seam and snip almost to the stitching about a 1/2 in apart. Then take the quilt to a laundrymat and wash them there to rag the seams. I did one in my washer at home some years back and it completely ruined the washer. The seams are not double stitched but you do have to watch how close you snip

Forgot to mention that the pics were taken BEFORE washing but the seams were snipped in preparation for washing

I used a heart template and cut the heart shape out of my top quilt piece. Then layered the purple flower piece of material under the cut out and sewed around the edge of the heart leaving a large enough seam to rag when done. I don't know of any classes, I just winged it
