Rag quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I only had to go back and re-sew a seam once! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to make patterns with the colours - just go for a totally random design. I ended up with some squares of the same colour together but it still looks fine.

What you will need

  • Moda Shaded Oak flannel layer cake
  • with brown and blue corduroy for the backing.

Q&A with LindsayPlum

Davesmom asked:
Wonderful first quilt. Did you put batting in the blocks to add for warmth? I want to make one for me. The rag quilt is the way to go for big quilts and its done when the squares are sewed together. Awesome. I have made a baby rag quilt. Time and money, usually if I have one I don't have the other. Nice quilt!!
LindsayPlum answered:
Hi! I didn't put batting in the blocks - the quilt is already quite heavy due to the combination of flannel and corduroy, and I figured batting would make it totally impossible for us to get out of bed!! Thanks for your lovely comments.
