What are you most proud of? These are adorable. Rag quilts are easy and you can use almost any combination of patterns, colors and stilll turn out great.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use scraps of flannel fabric. I buy all the leftover pieces at JoAnn for very cheap. Put them together and voila! Have fun!

doesn't the minky fabric shed? After you wash it does it fray or just keep shedding?

do you use anything between the layer of flannel and minky? such as batting?

The minky fabric does great after washing in cold water and gentle cycle. Tumble dry on low. It will get softer after each washing. For a thicker blanket I have made these with 3 layers using flannel in between. This one has 2 layers and is a lighter blanket, perfect for the southern California weather.

Hi! This is made with flannel and some mink fabric. No fleece used. It's a rag quilt made out of sandwiched squares sewn together leaving some seam allowance for the fringe. Free tutorials are available online. This is super easy to make! :)
